Keely Kelleher, one of Warren Miller Enterainment’s newest additions, is a rather busy girl. Kelleher is a former US Ski Team racer in DH and Super G with a penchant for “going fast and hitting big jumps.” Right now, however, the 27 year-old is juggling not only a new career in filming and freeskiing with WME, but running an expanding ski race and freeski camp series, getting a degree in business - and studying physical therapy. We caught up with her to find out a little about what brought her to WME what inspires her to do what she does.

I have been to India twice before. I skied in the Himalya, and earlier last fall I was there for a volunteering trip, working with kids rescued from the slave trade. We brought them bicycles and taught them them how to maintain them. That trip helped inspire this trip.

Kasmiri’s are very harsh-looking, and Americans are taught to be afraid of them. But they all begged us to take a photo with them. Everyone asks “One photo, one photo!”

Ski Portillo and Colby West Featured in ". . . Like There's No Tomorrow"

We caught up with Warren Miller skier Colby James West to hear what he had to say about jumping out of helicopters at South America’s most renowned ski resort, Ski Portillo in Chile.

As summertime fun-in-the-sun is being had here in the states, it's been dumping snow at Ski Portillo in Chile - over a foot in the last week. This is good reason to offer a sneak peak at our Portillo segment in this year's film, "Warren Miller's . . . Like There's No Tomorrow", starring comedic freeskier Colby West. We caught up with Colby while he was with his friends playing football on the beach in California. Here's what he had to say.

Five Minute Interview: Leo Ahrens

Youngster Leo Ahrens is making quite the name for himself. The teenager has been featured in Powder Magazine’s The Draft, and he spent his winter skiing everywhere from his hometown in Utah to South America. We snagged him while in La Parva, Chile participating in the Eye of the Condor contest. Here’s what he had to say about his future goals, school, and filming with Warren Miller.

Is this your first time filming with WME?

Indeed.

What other athletes did you film with?

We had a solid crew. Sammy Cohen, Carlo Taverelli, Ben Wheeler, and Brant Moles.

What were the conditions like?

They were so good! It’s Utah, what else would you expect?!

What was your favorite part about this experience?

Working with (cameraman) Tom Day was awesome. It was really cool to have such a high-tech camera to work with, and the guy who knows how to  use it.

Tim Durtschi is recovering from knee surgery, but he answered some questions about filming with WME, skiing with Kip Garre, and what we can expect from his segment.

How old were you when you first started skiing? I started skiing when I was 2 years old…and I never want to stop.

When did you first compete? I got into contests and freestyle when I was 15 and had my first sponsors by 17.

Ten Minute Interview: Michelle Parker

We chatted with Warren Miller Entertainment athlete Michelle Parker as she was driving across the country on a road trip. Here's what she had to say about knee injuries, the snow at Squaw, and filming with WME.

Growing up in a ski town developed my love and passion for the sport. Skiing was my daycare- it was what I did after school.  It was also an easy way for my parents to not have to worry about me.

I was four years old when I had my first race, but my first freeride competition was the US Open when I was 15.
