Warren Miller Film Shoot @ Lech Zürs am Arlberg

March 20, 2010

Last year I was lucky enough to film a segment for Warren Miller’s “Dynasty” in the Lyngen Alps, the very north of Norway. So when Kästle told me I was to film with Warren Miller again this season, what’s more in my home town, I felt like the luckiest person on earth.

For once, snow and weather conditions totally cooperated, the film shoot from 7th to 17th March was a huge success with cold powder and one sunny day after another. My Kästle buddies Karine Falck-Pedersen and Hugo Harrisson were with me, and I found myself guiding the crew including camera director extraordinaire Tom Day and camera assistant Hanno Mackowitz to my favourite spots around Lech Zürs.

The segment will touch on the long history of skiing at the Arlberg, as well as my own family history in Lech, which goes back 400 years. One of the oldest families in Lech, the Huber family resided in the “Huberhus” for 200 years, one of the oldest buildings in Lech and currently a museum.

And here's a taste of what's to come in next year's Warren Miller movie!


Warren Miller Film Tour for “Dynasty”

November 24, 2009

November was a busy month involving travelling to Boston and being present at 11 “Dynasty” shows in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire. After the first couple of shows (Hartford attracted over 5,000 people!) I lost my shyness on stage and gained a new-found confidence speaking in front of large groups of people. A great experience!

I wonder what I was saying in that photo, our MC Brent looks pretty shocked!

There were also 4 other shows to visit in Germany and Austria. All of them a great success!

I literally signed and wrote personal messages on hundreds of these posters.

The best news is that I’ll be filming with Warren Miller again this season, this time in my own home stomping ground: the Arlberg! Joining me are freeskiing super star Hugo Harrisson and Norway’s Karine Falck-Pedersen, both in the Kästle Pro Team.
