Zippy's Video of the Week: Behold, the Chairlift

A Salute to Skiing Filmmaker Warren Miller

Iconic filmmaker Warren Miller died last week at age 93. Beginning in the late-1940s, Miller began creating his signature outdoor adventure films, most notably focusing on skiing and snowboarding. He directed and narrated over 750 films, and they are still watched by audiences in ski resorts across the country. Miller's films are known for their stunning photography, wide appeal, and distinctive humor. His son, Kurt Miller, shared on NPR his father's life philosophy: "Spend more time with your family and friends doing something fun outdoors."

In honor of Mr. Miller, here is one of his favorite subjects: people falling off of chairlifts.
