Follow local Northwest splitboard mountaineer Kyle Miller on his “epic hunt for good snow” in the U.S. premiere of Crest Pictures’ newest film FreeRider.



Take a journey deep into the mountains of Wyoming with a group of hard-charging skiers and snowboarders in KGB Productions’ Wyoming Triumph.



FreeRider is a 14-minute documentary chronicling Miller's great passion for his sport, his love of the mountains and the wilderness, his ski bum lifestyle, his triumphs and disappointments, his pain and his joys, and his unyielding dedication towards fulfilling his riding dreams. Snowboarding has come a long way in the last few years, and splitboard mountaineering is at the forefront now. Miller is part of this new vanguard. He is an admired and respected splitboarder who has been featured in Off-Piste, Backcountry and Frequency magazines. Each season Miller sets a high bar for himself. In 2010, he successfully climbed and rode all 25 volcanoes in the Western United States. Last year he went for and completed Washington’s 10 highest peaks while the cameras rolled during the filming of FreeRider.

Wyoming Triumph is a 55-minute grassroots film featuring a veteran and youthful band of ski and snowboard friends and professionals, including Rob LaPier, Trevor Hiatt, Max Hammer, Tucker Mead, North Parker, Matt Luczkow, Trevor Thomas and Aidan Sheahan. Two years ago they set out on a mission to scout the vast and mostly unskied rugged interior of their home state, where more folks own elk rifles than skis. They traveled throughout the great big mountainous backcountry terrain of Wyoming in search of fresh lines and remote locations. The film not only explores the drive of this unique group of passionate individuals, but also takes the audience on a Wild West journey through parts of the “Old West” that still exists today. Following countless broken bones, close calls and getting lost, they return home with a story.

I highly recommend Kyle's film. Truly inspirational, and well worth the entire price of admission. I saw this same bill last Friday at the Mountaineers in Seattle.

Is it ok to boast about knowing someone before they were famous even if they're just your internet friend?

I'd say reach out to crest pictures...they have been great to deal with so it's a good bet you can get something worked out. KGB Films has been stellar too...makes for a grEat double feature

See you all Thursday night

Hey guys been slacking a bit or more specifically tired from breaking skin tracks but I'm glad people are enjoying the film.

I was actually in Europe (France) for the premiere of the film but sadly I don't think I will be heading back this season. At this moment I haven't heard of anymore screenings on that side of the pond but the peeps to get a hold of are Crest Pictures.

I think the films both work great together and I highly recommend coming for the KGB film alone.

It was a great film, Kyle, well done, even though you weren't down here in Bend for the screening. Or were you? ha, I bet you're a bit sick about seeing yourself on screen. I almost threw up envisioning myself in the situation you were in. ;-)
