Warren Miller Entertainment - No Turning Back

This fall, Warren Miller releases its 65th ski film, No Turning Back. The newest installment pays homage to the 65 years of mountain culture and adventure filmmaking that has lead us to every end of the winter world—and this year is no different. From beneath the blankets of powder in Niseko, Japan to the top of Greece’s Mount Olympus, the French Alps, and the Mom & Pop hills of Montana, each location is sure to provide nothing but stoke. Watch Olympian Ted Ligety shred the World Cup in Colorado, Ingrid Backstrom and Jess McMillan push the boundaries of the Alaskan Chugach, and JT Holmes and Ulie Kestenholz take flight high above the Swiss Alps. Revel in the celebration for this year’s winter season and remember, this time there’s No Turning Back. Find shows, get tickets and more at www.warrenmiller.com.

Utah Olympic Oval Hosts Speed Skating World Cup Nov. 15-17

Published: 10/29/2013
Kearns, UT (October 28, 2013) – The Utah Olympic Oval is hosting the first of many significant competitions during this winter season ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games  in Sochi, Russia. The Essent ISU World Cup Speed Skating event is scheduled from Friday, November 15 through Sunday, November 17 and will feature a field of 250 to 300 international long track speed skating athletes representing up to 25 countries.
 
The World Cup competition is an important milestone in a skater's journey toward securing a spot on their country's Olympic team. Top competitors will be racing and earning points based on their results. Typically, the top 12 skaters in each long track distance will earn a starting position on their country’s team based on total points. In addition, there are team spots determined by individual time rankings during the World Cup competition. Skaters with the fastest times can secure spots for their country during the Olympic Games.
 
The A Division races are scheduled in the afternoon each day, with races starting at 2:00 P.M. on Friday, and 1:30 P.M. on Saturday and Sunday. Doors to the venue will open an hour prior to race starting times. The races include the following distances for men and ladies: 500 meter, 1000 meter, 1500 meter, 3000 meter and 5000 meter (men only).

Family tickets for two adults and up to three youth are also available for $10 per day or $20 for the full event. Youth ages 3 and under are free.

The Kearns Community Council will be hosting a free ‘Western Corral’ event on Saturday, November 16 between 12:00 P.M. and 2:00 P.M. There will be a chili and hot chocolate bar, interactive sports funtivities, live music and western-themed entertainment by Utah’s very won ‘Hired Guns’. Lunch will be served on a first-come-first-serve basis. The community event will take place on entrance plaza of the Olympic Oval.
 
Home to the 'Fastest Ice on Earth’, the Olympic Oval has set over 75 world records since 2002. During the winter competition season, the Olympic Oval will also be hosting the U.S. Speed Skating Olympic Trials in short track and long track. The long track competitions will take place from December 27, 2013 through January 1, 2014. Short track competitions will be held January 2 through 5. Placement on Team USA will be announced based on athlete results during the Olympic Trials. The trials will be televised on NBC and NBC Sports Network.
During the short track trials, the official United States Olympic Committee’s ‘Road to Sochi’ interactive fan zone will make a tour stop at the Olympic Oval. The festivities will feature booths for the pubic with winter sport themed activities. The ‘Road to Sochi’ fan zone is free to the public.
