Warren Miller's Flow State Tour

clock 9th October 2012 | comment0 Comments

The dates of Warren Miller's Flow State have finally been announced. This year's film will be spending the next few weeks travelling around the country showcasing some epic skiing on the big screen — then leaving us salivating until its DVD release in 2013.

For both of the last two years we have made it to one of the showings, and we are already getting excited about an evening of big hits and epic powder lines, all on the big screen. Last year's film ...Like There's No Tomorrow was superb and will hit the shelves in the coming days, and Flow State looks easily as impressive.

The guys at Warren Miller have been making incredible ski films for longer than any of us dare to remember, and the Warren Miller Tour is one of those great events that reminds you that winter is just around the corner. So, if you are missing the snow, want to see one of the biggest ski films of the winter on a huge screen and fancy winning a prize or two, then get yourself down to the Warren Miller 212 Tour.

For a full list of dates and ticket information go to WarrenMiller.co.uk. If you haven't already seen it check out the Flow State trailer below.
