“Tomorrow, ideally,” read the email response from Kim Schneider, Warren Miller Entertainment’s Executive Editor. “Just threw down 40 hours straight of editing, so a bit fried at the moment. But anytime, really,” he signed off, helpfully. And while it quickly became clear that the middle of editing season may have been a less than optimal time to chat about how busy the job is, Schneider is not actually complaining.
One of the five Central Asian nations, Kazakhstan doesn’t normally inspire images of bluebird days and deep powder, at least for most people. Instead, images of the Silk Road, deserts, Mongol invasions and on a modern note, political instability and natural resources come to mind. Yet to mountaineers, skiers, and Warren Miller Entertainment, the region means vast swaths of fantastic mountains, amazing peaks, and incredible ski lines with light, dry powder.
