Warren Miller - No Turning Back - Melbourne screenings

No Turning Back, the latest ski and snowboard film from Warren Miller Entertainment, is 65 years in the making.

This time, they're looking at the legacy that dates to before skis had edges and mountains had resorts and they're running with it to every end of the Winter world. From beneath blankets of powder in Niseko, Japan to the top of Greece's Mount Olympus, the film leaves fresh tracks on faces that have never seen skiing and snowboarding quite like this before.

Screenings kick off around Australia from 20 May, and Hotham will be at Sydney and Melbourne screenings, so come and say hi!

Find out more about this year's film and get your tickets from the Warren Miller website.
