    The girls gone wild in this documentary are some of the best skiers and snowboarders in the world. They are so adept at the sport, that one even skis in Troll Peninsula in Iceland in hula-hoops and a swimsuit.
    “We only walk this earth once. It’s your choice—how do we want to ride this earth,” says Sierra Quitiquit in the latest Warren Miller film, “Ticket to Ride.” “We only have a short time and now is your time to seize the opportunity—this is your ticket.”
    The 64th annual Warren Miller film release will take filmgoers on an action-packed journey with the world’s best skiers and snowboarders. Athletes are seen at their career-best, on a path that puts them at the top of the steepest peaks.
    The film features a soundtrack to match the energy of the world’s most sought-after ski destinations—big lines in Alaska, Montana’s Big Sky Country and the exotic winter playgrounds of Kazakhstan, Iceland and Greenland. The trams and trains in Switzerland will climb to Mount Eiger, as the fishing boats in Norway travel to the islands of Alesund.
    Park and pipe veteran Gretchen Bleiler plays in Aspen and a snowboard segment in Valdez, Alaska, finds legends Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill on a rowdy, big mountain adventure.
    “This year, Warren Miller has offset the emissions impact from filming ‘Ticket to Ride,’ which is a small step toward creating a sustainable business for the future,” said Max Bervy, managing director, in a news release. “As a stakeholder in winter, Warren Miller Entertainment is committed to using our voice in the winter sports community to help preserve our winters.
    “Continuing our 64-year legacy, we look to make films that excite and inspire skiers and riders worldwide, and we must work with and impassion our audience to pass down the tradition and make positive changes for generations to come.”
