Celebrating Outpost Sunsport’s 36th year of bringing Warren Miller to Fort Collins
Fort Collins, Colo. – Oct. 17, 2018 – Winter is just around the corner, and Outpost Sunsport is excited to bring northern Colorado Warren Miller Entertainment’s (WME) 69th installment ski and snowboard film, “Face of Winter,” presented by Volkswagen. The late, great Warren Miller built his legacy capturing the essence of winter magic, and today that legacy launches the start of the ski and snowboard season every year. In the 69th feature film, celebrate the man who became known as the face of winter throughout the industry, as well as the places and people he influenced along the way. The community is invited to view this film on Friday, Nov. 2, 2018 at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins. Showings will be at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
This year, new and veteran athletes come together to pay tribute to the man who started it all, including Jonny Moseley, Marcus Caston, Seth Wescott, Forrest Jillson, Kaylin Richardson, Dash Longe, Anna Segal, Michael “Bird” Shaffer, and featured athletes of the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team, including gold medalist Jessie Diggins. Watch as they visit some of Miller’s favorite places from Engleberg to Chamonix, British Columbia to Alaska, Chile, Iceland, New Zealand and more.
“The tradition of kicking off the ski season with the Warren Miller film is one of our favorites,” said Randy Morgan, owner of Outpost Sunsport. “This year’s film is extra special as it reflects on the great impact that Warren Miller’s life had on the development of the ski industry, encouraging everyone to head to the mountains and get outdoors.”
All fans, young and old, are invited to come together and carry on the tradition of the official kickoff to winter. Film attendees will receive free or discounted tickets to resorts including Eldora, Purgatory, Sunlight Mountain Resort, Powderhorn, and Loveland Ski Area and receive $50 off the Mountain Collective Pass. Moviegoers will also be entered to win prizes from a collection of winter items including skis, helmets, goggles and more.
Tickets for “Face of Winter,” presented by Volkswagen, are on sale for $16 and can be purchased on The Lincoln Center’s website or in person at Outpost Sunsport, 931 E. Harmony Rd. #1 in Fort Collins.
