Warren Miller Annual Feature Film

November 18th • 6pm • Pinedale HS Auditorium

The lineage of mountain lifestyle continues in Warren Miller Entertainment’s 68th full-length feature film, Line of Descent, presented by Volkswagen. In this  year’s film, WME travels by globe, by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind ski culture.

In Squaw Valley and Jackson Hole, WME visits skiing icons who have made the mountain their home and raised mini Moes and Moseleys of their own.  Traveling to Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian brethren, and in the French Alps, native son Jean-Claude Killy’s legacy fills val-D’Isere hearts with pride.

From BC to France, Glacier Country to Steamboat, new generations of skiers and riders are pushing their sport to new extremes, making their parents proud–and often downright nervous.

WME crews chase winter along the Beartooth Highway where a road trip via motorcycles takes athletes Kalen Thorien and Mike “Bird” Shaffer from Montana to Wyoming. and still to come, snowboarders Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill will head to New Zealand to descend Mount Cook.

For 68 years, ski families have cheered the official kickoff of winter with the ski film company that started it all. This year is no different. The family grows, and the traditions grow richer, in Volkswagen Presents Warren Miller’s Line of Descent–deeper and fresher than ever.

Annual Flamingo Cup

Flamingo Cup Racer

 (Previously known as The Caroline Classic which has been moved to Jackson where Caroline’s family now resides)

March 17th • White Pine Ski Resort 

Over 200 pink flamingos on the ski hill!!

The Flamingo cup is part of the Club Series.  The Club Series is a regional series (Snow King, Teton Village, Grand Targhee and White Pine.) race series that serves as a fun introduction to ski racing. The Club Series is designed to provide the opportunity to race locally (day trips), very inexpensively, and is open to all.

Bruce CarlsonThe Flamingo Cup is held each year to remember Bruce Carlson.  Bruce was the head of our course crew for many years. Setting up and maintaining many or the training courses that were set up on training days. He was always there setting the safety net for races. Keeping the course smooth during the races and always the last off the hill after the races.  Bruce passed away April 2012.

You may see or hear “RPC Always Faster” on the hill. What does that mean??????  What the letters stood for is no longer significant. “RCP” and “Always Faster” have taken on their own meaning. This is a quote from Laney J. and Jenny B, who were the original RPC girls, which may give you a better understanding.

Flamingo Cup“As many of you know, Always Faster is the RPC motto.  Where this came from, was simply his way of encouraging us to do our best on the ski hill.  And later everything.  Always faster, isn’t just about skiing.  Bruce wanted us to be not only faster, but always better, always stronger, always smarter, always happier, and always striving to be our best.  It is more of a motto for life now, than just for the RPC’s.  It is always a motivation that we carry throughout our lives, even when we left home and went to college; we still live by the values and ethics that Bruce set out for us.  We are so grateful for everything that Bruce has provided for us, and we will never fill the space in our hearts that was left for him.”

Come join us at the Flamingo Cup. Wear your spring costume and join the fun!
