Warren Miller’s “CHASING SHADOWS”

Wednesday, Feb 17 at 7:00 pm

This fall, Warren Miller Entertainment will release its 66th snowsports film, CHASING SHADOWS. Watch JT Holmes, Seth Wescott, Caroline Gleich, and more as they pursue turns in Chamonix, Alaska’s Chugach, the Chilean Andes, Utah’s Wasatch and the mightiest range of them all: the Himalaya. These athletes are masters in their element, and with every cliff drop, perfect line and knee-deep powder turn, they motivate us. Take a glimpse into the world of the U.S. freestyle team and the dynamics of snowsports that live on the fringe, like monoskiing, powsurfing and speed riding. Explore what it means to be inspired, and what it is about exotic locations and snow-covered summits that keep us searching for more. Winter starts with Warren Miller hosted by Dan Egan!

Juston McKinney

Saturday, Feb 20 at 7:00 pm

New Hampshire’s Juston McKinney returns with lots of new material!! THIS SHOW SOLD OUT LAST YEAR; GET YOUR TICKETS EARLY SO YOU DON’T MISS IT!

Juston has two Comedy Central Specials including his own one-hour special and multiple appearances on the Tonight Show, and on Conan O’Brien, but there’s no place like home!

When NH magazine named him “Best of NH” they wrote, “The Granite State may have more famous comedians than you can shake a stick at (Seth Meyers, Sarah Silverman and Adam Sandler to name a few) but no one really “gets” New Hampshire humor like Juston McKinney. He’s been using the state as his comic muse since he was humoring perps as a deputy sheriff on the NH/ME border in the 1990s. Now he’s got TV deals galore and appearances on “The Tonight Show” and Comedy Central.”

His Youtube channel has over a million views, which includes NH favorites such as “Live Free or Die” and “Live Freeze then Die!”.

Juston was born in Portsmouth and he currently lives in New Hampshire with his wife, two children and two dogs.
