Warren Miller's "Line of Descent"
Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017 at 7:30pm
General Admission: $15
Line of Descent The lineage of mountain lifestyle continues in Warren Miller Entertainment's 68th full-length feature film, Line of Descent. In this year’s film, WME travels the globe, by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind ski culture.
In Squaw Valley and Jackson Hole, WME visits skiing icons who have made the mountains their home and raised mini Moes and Moseleys of their own. Traveling to Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian brethren, and in the French Alps, native son Jean-Claude Killy’s legacy fills Val-D’Isere hearts with pride. From BC to France, Glacier Country to Steamboat, new generations of skiers and riders are pushing their sport to new extremes, making their parents proud—and often downright nervous.
WME crews chase winter along the Beartooth Highway where a road trip via motorcycles takes athletes Kalen Thorien and Mike “Bird” Shaffer from Montana to Wyoming. And still to come, snowboarders Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill will head to New Zealand to descend Mount Cook.
For 68 years, ski families have cheered the official kickoff of winter with the ski film company that started it all. This year is no different. The family grows, and the traditions grow richer, in Warren Miller’s Line of Descent. Bigger, deeper, fresher than ever.

This stop on the 2017 Warren Miller tour is promoted by the Snow Country Ski Club, formerly the Ironwood Ski Devils, our local High School Ski Racing Team. The club is no longer funded by the school system. Parents of racers, racers and volunteers fundraise to help keep local youth skiers active, engaged, and competitive on the racing circuit that covers Upper and Lower Michigan and Northern Wisconsin. The club is very proud of its long track record and deep history. The local skiing community is strong and many of these long time skiers are Ski Devil Alumni. There are many fond memories of the ski devil travelling team, its successes and championships and its former long term Michigan Hall of Fame coach, Theron Peterson.
The Snow Country Ski Club partnered with us at the Theatre and with Warren Miller to bring this premier movie to our ski town. This is one of the very important fund raisers that help cover travel expenses, lift tickets, equipment maintenance, coaching, and more. So buy some tickets and bring a few friends to the movie and get your Stoke for Winter! Winter is coming!
Doors and Kelly's Bar open at 6:30 pm (CST). Line of Descent screens at 7:30 (CST), but come early, hang out with your ski crowd and dig into the latest gear on display by our local sponsors.
NOTE TO THOSE TRAVELING FROM OUTSIDE OUR IMMEDIATE AREA: Even though we are in the UP, Ironwood is in the Central Time zone!
