Warren Miller's "Freedom Found"

The life story of Warren Miller, told by the man himself.

Warren Miller has always been the storyteller of the ski industry, known to many as the "godfather of action sports filmmaking," but there are many more layers to this man than just skiing and making films.

Living Legend: Klaus Obermeyer

Humble. Energetic. Wise. Three words that describe the 96-year-old pioneer.

When Klaus Obermeyer started skiing 93 years ago, he skied on thin pieces of chestnut wood. The wood was from an old crate used to carry oranges. He nailed a pair of his buckle shoes to them with a couple of inches of nail sticking through the bottom, and tied one end of a string around the tips, and the other around his knees to create ski tips.

“When you’re three, you’re not a very good carpenter,” Obermeyer says.

Remembering Doug Coombs

Being the widow of a skiing legend isn’t easy. Emily Coombs is making it work.

Ten years ago this spring, Doug Coombs, one of American skiing’s most admired figures, died in a fall in one of the countless steep chutes at La Grave, France, the wild ski area where he lived with his wife, Emily, and their two-year-old son, David. Coombs, along with Chad VanderHam, died while working as mountain guides, the career Coombs had carved out after a career in ski films and extreme skiing competitions.

On Patrol

Big Sky ironman Phil Capi served in WWII, was shot down during the Korean War, may have been a spy, and has patrolled since the 1960s. Oh, and he’s scratching 90 years old.

The East Coast War of Fog

In the snowy mountains of western Maine, a bitter battle rages. Proud Sugarloafers swear allegiance, while brash Sunday Riverites remember every insult.

I propose that I’d be the perfect envoy for peace negotiations between warring parties in the long-running conflict in western Maine.

Powder Shots and Family Ties

Raising a family and building a ski area are tough jobs—especially at the same time. The Pitchers pulled it off at Colorado’s powder keg, Wolf Creek.
