SAN DIEGO ARTS : S.D. Skiing Enthusiasts Can Warm Up With 'White Winter Heat' : Film

December 02, 1987|HILLIARD HARPER

- San Diego schussboomers will have a chance to marvel once more at the action sequences captured by skiing's master film maker, Warren Miller.

"White Winter Heat," Miller's 38th big-screen tribute to the joy of skiing, will show this week at four San Diego locations. Featuring top skiers such as former U.S. Olympic team member Andy Mills, "Winter Heat" combines adventure and comedy on skis.

The movie ranges from professional and telemark racing to deep powder, big bumps, cliff jumping and dirt skiing on lava beds. There are also segments displaying horse racing on ice, bobsledding and windsurfing.

Miller, his camera crew and ski teams typically find some of the world's scenic wonders as a backdrop for their film spectacular: from Vail, Colo., and British Columbia's Kootenay National Park to Las Lenas in Argentina and New Zealand's Harris Mountains.

"White Winter Heat" will be shown at 7 and 9:30 p.m. today at La Paloma Theatre in Encinitas; at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the East County Performing Arts Center in El Cajon; at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art; and at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Civic Theatre.
