'Daymaker' kicking off area ski season

| November 4, 2022 1:00 AM

Warren Miller is back with its 73rd annual ski and snowboard film entitled “Daymaker” — and you’re invited.

This year’s film will be shown at the Panida Theater on Saturday, Nov. 12. Film starts at 7 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m. All tickets are $15 general admission and are sold on the Panida Theater website at www.panida/events.org. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the box office for $17 the night of the show.

Warren Miller films are the annual celebration and kickoff to the ski season in the Sandpoint area. "Daymaker" continues that annual cross-generation experience that connects us to the upcoming winter season and all it has to offer.

This year, “Daymaker” features Crazy Karl Fostvedt and a local crew of freeskiers in Sun Valley in addition to Katie Burrell on a Canadian road trip as she attempts to go pro alongside Freeride World Tour competitors Hedvig Wessel. From there, the Warren Miller team returns to Snowmass for the biggest party of the winter with the National Brotherhood of Skiers where you’ll meet the emerging talent that the NBS supports to further its goal of placing Black skiers and snowboarders on the U.S. Team.

“Daymaker” also captures a trio to Greece’s Olympus Range with Michelle Parker and McKenna Peterson, plus the powder days we all enjoy when massive storm systems hit in British Columbia. Alaska, Snowbasin and more, Warren Miller’s 73rd film will bring you along for the biggest days so you can ready for your own winter season.

In addition the Independence Ski Team will be on hand as in years past with its “Great Outdoors” raffle with five great prizes. Prizes include a Schweitzer season pass, golf and cart for two at six Northwest golf courses, paddleboard, five days lodging and lifts for two at Schweitzer and the final being a week condo stay at Holiday Shores.
