Ski film legend Warren Miller’s latest flick, Children of Winter, features much of the expected big air action. But this one jumps around the world with a diverse cast of characters to not only show off chops but also expose the fun side of playing on the mountain in winter. Former World Cup speedster Daron Rahlves hits the Alps in Austria but is also filmed at Sun Valley, Idaho, with Colby West and Seth Wescott, who play in the half-pipe, while Michael Franti provides the après-ski soundtrack. He’s not the only musician featured. At Okemo in Vermont, Dave Matthews Band’s Stefan Lessard rides with friends Eric Fawcett of N.E.R.D, Adam Gardner of Guster, and Ed Robertson of The Barenaked Ladies, before the boys jam in an impromptu classic rock cover band. Other cool footage includes Olympic Gold Medalist Jonny Moseley meeting up with former opponent Takehiro Sakamoto in the Japanese Alps.
