FILM: Go with the ‘Flow' this weekend

By Nikki McCoy on November 6, 2012


Warren Miller's 63rd feature film Flow State is all about going with the flow. Whether it's on top of terrain only recently discovered by scientists, on the backside of majestic Colorado ridges, or learning about the Mürren, Switzerland tradition of eating sausage every day, Flow State riders, and I imagine filmgoers, get caught in the magic of the moment.

World-class skiers and snowboarders partake in the adventures of their lives, moment for moment through time - a helicopter ride, a sketchy run, a suspension in air while completing the ultimate trick. The feats of these talented athletes combined with Warren Miller standby's you've come to love, like thoughtful, witty commentary, breathtaking photography and a kick ass soundtrack, witnessing this film - if its anything close to other Miller flicks - will surely feel larger than life.
