Miller’s ‘Wintervention’

comes to Lake Tahoe

Warren Miller’s “Wintervention” comes to Montbleu at Stateline on Dec. 3-4.

Narrated by skiing icon Jonny Moseley, the film features acute cases of classic snow-addiction from across the globe. There are the skiers who sail from Argentina to Antarctica searching for some of the last untouched descents on Earth. There are the skiers and riders who venture deep into the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia, chasing rumors they overheard in a language they don’t speak and there are the skiers who tour far into the northern reaches of the Arctic Circle where they won’t just climb peaks, they’ll get their powder fix at the top of the planet.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. both days. Tickets are available at Sports LTD. or Montbleu. For more information, go to http://www.montbleu
