The first snow has fallen and that means the time is near for dusting off the boards and tuning up your skis and snowboards. We can think of no better way to get stoked for the upcoming ski season than watching some 2022 ski and snowboard movie premieres, and Park City is serving up two movie premieres worth checking out this week!
This is the time when we all get charged up about tricks we’ll probably never try and lines we’ll likely never ski, but there’s something about watching the professionals effortlessly throw down in pristine conditions for these extremely talented filmmakers that just feeds the preseason excitement!
So this week, join in the time-honored tradition of getting outrageously hyped for winter – while still having to wait several torturesome weeks before the resorts open.
Park City Film presents Matchstick Productions’ 2022 ski film, “Anywhere From Here,” which explores the enticing world of skiing through the eyes of 12 year-old freestyle phenomenon, Walker Woodring. Through his voice, the audience hears the skiing aspirations of this preteen who just wants to play and doesn’t have to ponder “real life” quite yet.
The film is packed with a star-studded cast of skiers featuring Sam Kuch, Tonje Kvivik, Eric Hjorleifson, Markus Eder, Emily Childs and load more as they shred their way across the globe. Breathtaking locations include Third Edge Heli-Skiing in Alaska, Nootka Lodge in British Columbia, Absolut Park in Austria, Colorado’s Copper Mountain and Oregon’s Mt. Hood. Movie runs 60 minutes.
Showtimes & location: Friday (Oct. 28) at 7:30 p.m., Saturday (Oct. 29) at 7 p.m.; Sunday (Oct. 30) at 6 p.m.; all shows are at the Santy Auditorium (1255 Park Ave., inside the Park City Library).

Warren Miller Entertainment’s 73rd annual ski and snowboard film, “Daymaker,” takes place on peaks that will replace the mountains in your mind – and with ones that will free your mind as well! Join Crazy Karl Fostvedt, Michelle Parker, Katie Burrell, Hanna Beaman, Daron Rahlves, Ryland Bell, Cam Fitzpatrick, Connery Lundin and more on the hill, and get ready for a wild ride.
These daredevil athletes take us along to epic stops including British Columbia’s Monashees, the “throne of the gods” in Greece’s Olympus Mountains, Alaska – twice, and several nearby favorites including Colorado’s Snowmass for the biggest party of the winter, and a surprise for a Warren Miller superfan at Snowbasin, who gets to make a few turns with Jonny Moseley and Marcus Caston. “Daymaker” also follows one of Europe’s most legendary mountain guides, rewrites the rules of adaptive backcountry riding, and tries to keep up with some of the most exciting young skiers and snowboarders on the planet.
