For the last five decades, Whistler Blackcomb has left its mark on those who are drawn to the mountains.

But while 50 Years of Going Beyond solidifies the resort’s legacy in the past, there is no denying that the last 50 years is just the beginning.

“For the fall of 2015, Warren Miller Entertainment releases Chasing Shadows, the 66th annual winter sports film. Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and this year, we’re chasing the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding as they find that very freedom. Explore what it means to be inspired, and what it is about exotic locations and snow-covered summits that keep us searching for more. As skiers and snowboarders we chase a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn — we’ve been chasing it our whole lives and we’ll keep chasing it a lifetime more.” – warrenmiller.com
