For a dedicated band of the world's most acclaimed winter sports athletes, the art of harnessing gravity to ride drops of up to 4,000 sheer feet has reached new heights in Warren Miller's HIGHER GROUND. The film features astonishing new footage, chronicling skiers and snowboarders in their never-ending search for new and thrilling ways to ride the snow. Crisscrossing the globe, hitting the steeps of Alaska, terrain parks in Colorado, deep powder in British Columbia and cliffs in Switzerland, Warren Miller's HIGHER GROUND is an exhilarating film experience which brings skiing and snowboarding to life on the big screen as no other action sports film has done.
"Skiers and snowboarders constantly stretch and push limits: physical, emotional and gravitational," says Max Bervy, HIGHER GROUND Producer/Director. "To achieve HIGHER GROUND we set out to capture a select group of individuals in amazing locations, pushing their athletic boundaries. For mountaineer Dave Barlia it meant flying 10 feet off the ground, at 130 miles per hour, while wearing his winged suit on the slopes of Chamonix, France. For World Cup mogul champion and Olympic Gold Medal favourite Jeremy Bloom, it was a life changing experience,' when we invited him to heli-ski for the first time in the wild backcountry terrain of British Columbia."
Part action/adventure, part documentary, Warren Miller's HIGHER GROUND also features legendary athletes such as big mountain skiers Jeremy Nobis and Seth Morrison, Ski-BASE jumping innovator Shane McConkey, and the sport's hot-dogging icon, Glen Plake, as well as up and coming stars like five-year-old protege, Bridger Gile.
Featuring stunning and truly breath-taking scenes from some of the world's most inaccessible peaks, Warren Miller's HIGHER GROUND will tour Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane during May and June. A regional tour is also scheduled as part of the national season.
Along with adrenaline-filled free-fall action, thrilling adventure and magnificent scenery, HIGHER GROUND delivers a high-energy soundtrack on a state-of-the-art digital sound system.
