Warren Miller is back. Here’s how to win HEAD skis and tickets to a screening.

Three Front Range ski areas are open, Trail Ridge Road and Independence Pass have closed until spring and fallen leaves are blowing in the wind. Another harbinger of winter arrives this week when the annual Warren Miller ski and snowboard film begins its tour of Front Range venues.

The 72nd edition of the iconic ski cinema series, titled “Winter Starts Now,” comes to the PACE Center in Parker Thursday night. That begins a run of 21 shows at eight venues through Nov. 24 including stops in Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Loveland, Boulder, Lakewood, Denver and Lone Tree.

There will be eight shows at the Boulder Theater, Nov. 11-14, and five at the Paramount in downtown Denver, Nov. 18-20.

“Winter Starts Now” takes skiers and riders to Sugarloaf, Maine, Sun Valley, Idaho, Solitude, Utah, Palisades Tahoe (formerly known as Squaw Valley) in California and far-flung venues in Alaska.

There is a delightful segment focusing on Steamboat’s tiny Howelsen Hill, which has produced 96 Olympians, and a segment that focuses on the National Brotherhood of Skiers was shot in Snowmass. The mission of the NBS is to identify, develop and support ski and snowboard athletes of color.

This year, one lucky skier will win 10 tickets to a Denver screening of “Winter Starts Now,” along with a pair of HEAD skis. All you have to do is fill out this form to enter. The deadline for entries is Nov. 15, and the winner will be announced Nov. 16.
