WHAT IS STORM SHOW STUDIOS?
In an age of extravagant high-budget ski films, Darrell Miller’s homegrown film company has become a recognized force in the ski film industry for capturing winter in Jackson Hole from the trenches, where gritty shots of first descents rival music-driven montages. Storm Show’s films keep an honest yet electrifying focus on climbing and riding big mountains, deep powder, and breathtaking natural imagery.
“Our movies are not only about skiing the lines. They capture the thrill and the aftermath, that feeling of accomplishment you have when you’re still alive at the end of the day.”
WHO IS DARRELL MILLER?
Filmmaker Darrell Miller has been producing adrenalized mountain films in Jackson Hole since the mid-’90s. His award-winning production company, Storm Show Studios, has produced 11 feature-length films, two of which landed coveted spots on The Ski Channel’s “Top 100 Ski Films Of All Time.” His films have also received numerous “Best Of” accolades from the Powder Video Awards and the Cold Smoke Awards, and have been featured on The Ski Channel, Fox Sports Net, Resort Sports Network, Snowboard Canada Magazine, Powder Magazine, and Skiing Magazine, among others.
Local as it gets, Darrell Miller grew up in the Jackson Hole region and has spent 30+ years skiing the area’s jagged peaks amongst the pioneers of ski mountaineering. He has witnessed the sport grow from free-riding to jibbing to exposed ski-descents in the Himalayan-scale Teton Range and has been capturing it on film for the last decade.
“My filmmaking influence comes directly from the life changing experiences I’ve had in the mountains. The goal was simple: To inspire people and show them that you can accomplish what you set out to do, be it climbing and riding a mountain, or whatever personal goal you set.” — Darrell Miller
