Don't miss the chance to see Path to Everest on the big screen on 12 May 2019 at the Fairmont Resort!

Kilian Jornet, the best mountain runner in history, wrote as a child a list of all the races he would like to win and all the mountains he dreamed of climbing.

In May 2017 he ticked off the last on the list with the historic double, solo ascent of Everest, without oxygen and in a single climb. It marked the climax of the Summits of My Life project which over five years took him to some of the world's most famous peaks, accompanied by a small group of climbers.

PATH TO EVEREST, directed by Sébastien Montaz-Rosset and Josep Serra, follows the path that led Kilian Jornet to the highest peak in the world in an intimate portrait that reveals his fears, contradictions and his desire to keep seeking new challenges so that he can continue to dream, surrounded by the mountains and people who are his inspiration.

PATH TO EVEREST is presented by Adventure Entertainment and perfect for anyone who enjoyed the Oscar-winning documentary, FREE SOLO


Warren miller is coming to the Blue Mountains for the very first time!

Warren Miller is also coming to the Blue Mountains on 2 June 2019 at the Fairmont Resort!

Loving the pure joy of winter is something we have in common with the late, great Warren Miller-who helped create and capture the magic of skiing. This year, "Face of Winter," the 69th instalment from Warren Miller Entertainment presented by Volkswagen, will bring new and veteran athletes alike together to pay tribute to the man who started it all. Watch as the world's best skiers and riders cover ground in some of the most legendary destinations to honour a face that launched a thousand quips and got us all started on this long, crazy ride. Visit some of Warren's favourite locations from Switzerland to Chamonix, British Columbia to Alaska, Chile, Iceland, New Zealand and more. Come along to far off regions, meet the locals, carve faces of remote mountain ranges, and celebrate the thrills of a life lived in high places.
