Skier Kaylin Richardson shows her preference for the extreme in another Warren Miller snow sports film, showing Friday and Saturday at the State Theatre in Minneapolis.
Warren Miller Productions have made a brand of the thrilling ski film (this is the 68th year), and Richardson, an Edina native, has had some recurring roles. In this year’s “Line of Descent,” she carves her way down stunning peaks in Norway.
Richardson was but 5 when her parents put her on skis at Hyland Hills in Bloomington, she told the Star Tribune in advance of a Miller movie screening in 2014. “My parents (Linda and Steve) were hoping that I could make the varsity ski team at Edina High School.”
Richardson did that and more, making the U.S. national team as a ninth-grader. She won four national titles and skied in two Winter Games.
