In case you needed a reminder that winter is coming on fast, Warren Miller Entertainment launched its national tour last month for the ski auteur’s 65th film, No Turning Back. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Lynsey Dyer’s all-female Pretty Faces took to the road in October, Teton Gravity Research recently dropped its anticipated Almost Ablaze, and Red Bull is on a global junket with the powder-worship/beat-Zen-poetry mash-up Days of My Youth. With so much ski porn coming to a theater near you, we thought you might need a refresher on what separates ski cinema from other titillating genres.
