Don’t miss Warren Miller’s Future Retro presented by Switzerland, showing at Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre in Aoraki/Mount Cook on 23rd July.

If there is one thing you can always count on, it is Warren Miller's annual ski film. And this year is no different. Warren Miller’s Future Retro will revel in 71 years of movie magic—with fresh stories and perspectives from across the globe, heroes from the glory days, and that retro energy keeping the winter dream alive.

Travel to Switzerland with big-mountain skiers Lexi duPont and Amie Engerbreston. Explore Iceland with Aspen locals Victor Major and Baker Boyd. Go to Antarctica to closely examine the impact of climate change while seeking adventure with Protect Our Winters and athletes Elana Hight, Danny Davis and Nick Russell. 

Film kicks off at 7.30pm and is approx. 2 hours long, we'll have intermission half way through with treats and beverages (both soft & alcoholic available).

If you're travelling from Twizel we'll have a bus leaving the bus stop opposite the big Four Square at 6pm, and returning after movie ends. Grab a seat on the bus for a return journey for only $30, plus have a free roadie on us.
