Filming is unlike anything I’ve done before and I want to share a behind the scenes look at what it takes to put together what you see on the the big screen. By Keely Kelleher

Coming home to film with Warren Miller is like slipping into a pair of new socks (not sure if others like this sensation, I personally love it!). It just feels good. Today the mountain had some interesting weather, so we didn’t do any filming. Chris Patterson the director knows what he wants and if the light and weather aren’t cooperating then we don’t shoot. Chris has been directing Warren Miller films for twenty years; he knows when the time is right to roll cameras. To take the place of shooting we scoped out the snow and terrain on Lone Peak. It’s typical wind blown cream on the summit. The snow I grew up skiing and love. However, at one point during the day I thought I was going to puke on my feet due to the fog. Vertigo isn’t fun.
