The world’s leading winter sports film producer, Warren Miller Entertainment has announced its highly-anticipated 65th film, No Turning Back.

Hosted by the Vernon Ski Club, the film will be shown at the Vernon Towne Cinema Thursday, Nov. 20 at 6 and 9 p.m.

This new installment in WME’s annual film tradition examines the heritage that has continued to document the cutting edge of winter sports, from early alpine racing to today’s freestyle park skiing and big mountain exploration.

This year, Vernon’s own Josh Bibby joins Tyler Ceccanti to ski Mount Olympus in Greece. Seth Morrison, Julian Carr and other world-class athletes also head into the depths of Japan, on the peaks of the Swiss Alps, on the side of Montana mountains and elsewhere.

“This year, we’ve traveled to some of the most exotic locations around the globe in search of the biggest mountains, and the deepest powder,” said producer Josh Haskins. “As we continue to capture the progression of winter sports, we also pay respect to the pioneers who have paved the way over the years since Warren first picked up a camera 65 years ago.”

This year’s film is once again complimented with a high-energy soundtrack delivered on a state-of-the-art digital sound system.

Doors to Thursday’s screenings open at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. for the second show. Pre-show tickets are on sale through all Vernon ski and snowboard shops: Attridge, Olympia, Sport Chek and Sun Valley as well as at the Bean Scene and the Towne Cinema. Tickets may be purchased at the door, however space is limited.

All attendees will receive a free Snoworld Canada Magazine along with special offers when they arrive. Everyone attending the film will be entered into the Canadian Tour Sweepstakes draw and the World Tour Sweepstakes draw for a chance to win a one week Sun Peaks ski vacation, a Helly Hansen shopping spree, a Momentum summer ski camp in Whistler, a set of four Toyo Tires, Swany gloves and more.
