Well, I made it! After a full day of travel from Seattle I have made it to Nesiko, Japan. I am here for two weeks filming a segment with Warren Miller Entertainment. Roman (the other skier being filmed) and I got out today to check out what this place has to offer. Not one person from this crew has been to Japan before so this is a learning experience for everyone. Japan is a very unique place and we are lucky enough to be staying at the Black Diamond Lodge. The guy who runs it deals with a lot of ski film crews like Level 1, MSP and lots of snowboard crews as well. I highly recommend this lodge if anyone decides to come here. Anyway, when we arrived we were told that we would rarely see the sun. Well, this morning, it just so happened that there were blue skies. We had a bit of a late start but we got to get up and check out the place. I'm very excited to see what everything has to offer and get as many banger shots as we can. Ill try and keep you updated with some good photos.
For the third year in a row, Salt Lake City's Abravanel Hall has hosted the World Premiere of Warren Miller's newest ski film. This year, all-star athletes, amazing sponsors and stoked fans showed up to watch Ticket to Ride and kick off the 2013/2014 Winter season.
Join Rob Kingwill and Seth Wescott as they explore the insane peaks and striking ice caves of Valdez, AK with Valdez Heli-Ski Guides in this behind the scenes gallery of WME's 64th production, Ticket to Ride.
Anytime Jess McMillan, Sierra Quitiquit and Julia Mancuso get together to shred, it's going to be epic. When they get together to shred in Iceland, some of the most beautiful arctic terrain in the world, it's mind blowing.
When Chris Patterson gets behind a camera, magical things happen. That's why he's the Director of Photography for Warren Miller Entertainment. Check out his Instagram photos while filming Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill at Valdez Heli-Ski Guides for Warren Miller's 64th ski movie, coming Fall 2013.
Rob Kingwill not only has a keen eye for a great line, he also has a great eye for photography. Check out his Instagram photos as we filmed him shredding Valdez, AK with Seth Wescott. Follow him on Instagram at @robkingwill
