Warren Miller Day

Remember Warren together on February 17 for Warren Miller Day!

The outpouring of sentiment from Warren Miller's recent passing has been overwhelming, and many have asked how to honor his life. Warren did not want a public memorial service. Instead, he simply wanted you to hit your favorite run or do something else you love in his memory.

On February 17, let's honor his wishes and all take a run for Warren. Visit your favorite mountain and post to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook using #ripwarrenmiller. Tagged photos and videos may be selected for use in the authorized Warren Miller documentary now in production.

Innovator. Pioneer. Icon. Legend. Warren's life influenced generations. He made the extraordinary accessible. His legacy of freedom, humor, and adventure endures in all of us. Rest in pow.
