Does Kevin Quinn Go To Burning Man?

It’s off-season for Points North Heli-Adventure’s owner Kevin Quinn and he's prepping his plane to fly another round of partygoers to the infamous Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.

It’s off-season for Points North Heli-Adventure’s owner Kevin Quinn, meaning he is down at Lake Tahoe, CA, but for Quinn, it’s never actually ‘off’ season. Chauffering people via air to fun stuff is what makes the PNH owner, operator, and lead guide tick.

Little Guy, Big Tricks: An Interview with Aspen Spora

Aspen Spora, athlete in Warren Miller Entertainment’s upcoming film Flow State, dishes on what it’s like to be an 11-year-old freeskiing star.

If you met Aspen Spora on the chairlift you’d think he’s like every other 11-year-old kid – he loves to play Xbox, jump on the trampoline, and constantly begs his mom to stay up late. But once he enters the park, you forget he’s about to start the sixth grade. Instead of watching the big boys throw tricks from the sidelines, Aspen is right behind, if not, ahead of them, leading the pack through the superpipe.

Jackie Paaso Raises the Bar

Jackie Paaso Raises the Bar

Jackie Paaso, the second female in over a decade to win the Sickbird Award, discusses her motivation and off-season training secret that allows her to raise the level of competition for all skiers.

Just a few years ago, after a move to Squaw Valley, CA, a low-key East Coast mogul skier blew onto the competitive big mountain scene, with aggressive lines, strong skiing, and memorable airs. The skier even snatched one of skiing’s most coveted awards for impressive and well-executed airs right out from under the noses of the usual suspects for winning it. With that, Jackie Paaso became only the second female in over a decade to win the Sickbird Award. And that is how the ski world got to know Jackie.

Muscles are Pretty: Keely Kelleher's Ski Camp for Girls

When professional freeskier and Warren Miller Entertainment ripper Keely Kelleher retired from the US Ski Team in 2010 due to accumulated injuries, she didn’t see an end. Rather, the 27-year old saw only beginnings. It was an opportunity to hone her big mountain skills, have a film career, and to give back to the sport of ski racing and skiing.
