For those of you who aren't familiar, Warren Miller films are devoted to the skiing and snowboarding genre; they've been setting powder-lovers teeth on edge for over 60 years now. These iconic movies seek to capture the ski genre in all of its glory – gapers, bunnies and all.
Each year, Warren Miller Entertainment releases a new movie, and you can bet your ski poles it comes, in full glory, to Boulder Theater. Because, let's be honest, this outdoorsy town wouldn't miss it.
That being said, to prepare for the release of the new Warren Miller flick, West End Tavern spends two months pumping up the citizens of Boulder by showing the older films every Wednesday evening.
But that's not all. Drink specials are to die for. Plus, if you order off the happy hour menu, you receive a ticket for the raffle at the end of the night. Prizes include helmets, avalanche shovels, shirts, hats and your entire fridge stocked by a local beer company.
