Warren’s World

  • Freedom on Mount Waterman

    By Warren Miller on July 29, 2015
    by Warren Miller ·    Tied tightly to the roof of the nearly new 1929 model A Ford coupe was my two-man toboggan that I had spent half of the semester of my seventh grade woodshop class making. This as my first project. I was already freezing cold as we started to climb up into the San Gabriel Mountains. Even […]
  • Unanticipated consequences, again

    By Warren Miller on July 22, 2015
    by Warren Miller ·  Once in a while, it’s a good idea to pause in your journey through life and realize what might have happened if you turned right instead of left at that fork in the road. Had I not ridden my bicycle along with a friend for 3 miles to the Polar Palace ice arena in Hollywood, I […]
  • Enjoying the ski life

    By Warren Miller on July 15, 2015
    by Warren Miller · In the spring of 1997, my wife Laurie and I were living the good life in Vail, Colo., skiing almost every day when I was invited to take a ride on a private jet to Bozeman, Mont. On board were former Vice Presidential candidate Jack Kemp, Jon Reveal and the man who had invited us, Tim […]
  • Escaping in the dark

    By Warren Miller on July 8, 2015
    By Warren Miller · In 1930, we were headed northbound on a narrow, two-lane road in the San Fernando Valley called Ventura Boulevard. Our family’s entire possessions were jammed in and on top of the car because we had again moved in the middle of the night to avoid paying back rent. Apparently, my father didn’t feel like working and […]
  • New skateboard parks

    By Warren Miller on July 1, 2015
    By Warren Miller ·  In the early 1960s, my family was living in Hermosa Beach and our friend, Don Guild, owned the local drugstore. Appearing one day in his front window was an 18-inch piece of wood painted red with a roller skate nailed to the bottom. On the top in big bright, white letters it said “Bun Board.” A […]
  • Early surfing

    By Warren Miller on June 24, 2015
    by Warren Miller ·  When the economic crash happened in 1929, the unemployment rate in America skyrocketed to more than 25 percent. Almost daily, someone knocked on the back door and said, “I will do anything for a sandwich of any kind, please because I haven’t eaten in two days.” My father was one of those 25 percent out of […]
  • Golf is as dumb as skiing

    By Warren Miller on June 17, 2015
    by Warren Miller ·  Golf is as dumb as skiing, but you can do it wearing fewer clothes. When the Yellowstone Club in Montana was opened, it became the world’s only private ski and golf club. I was lucky when I got the job to hang around and ski with potential members, and Tom Weiskopf was chosen to design and build […]
  • Gidget

    By Warren Miller on June 10, 2015
    by Warren Miller ·  In 1949, Frederick Kohner, his wife and young daughter, Kathy, signed up for my beginner ski school class in Sun Valley on Dollar Mountain. This was their first ski vacation since Frederick and his wife escaped the German invasion of Austria during World War II. The second day at lunch, I spun some stories about surfing […]
  • A Good Life

    By Warren Miller on June 3, 2015
    by Warren Miller ·   I was lucky to have been born in Southern California when there were less than 1 million people living in greater Los Angeles. At the age of 11, my grandmother gave me my first major freedom in the form of a balloon-tired bicycle for my birthday. I could peddle it to the beach at Santa […]
  • Mount Waterman 

    By Warren Miller on May 20, 2015
    by Warren Miller ·   The eastern city limits of Pasadena rise abruptly up to Mount Wilson where there is a 100-inch telescope that was a state-of-the-art telescope until sometime in the 30s or 40s. Driving by Mount Wilson on a winding, narrow road will get you to Mount Waterman. There in the late 1930s, Lynn Newcomb and his son […]
