Wasatch Backcountry Alliance hosts the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival celebrating its 10th Anniversary with nine unique films aimed to inspire winter adventurers to seek the snow less traveled.
The Backcountry Film Festival is renowned for its mix of professional and grassroots films from well-known filmmakers who search backcountry corners across the globe to submit their best work to first-timers who take a video camera out on their weekend excursions.
The festival was created in 2004 to highlight efforts to
preserve and promote winter landscapes for human-powered users and to support like-minded, human-powered recreation and conservation efforts and to raise awareness of winter management issues, avalanche training/safety and winter education programs.
This year's program includes:
Winner, Best of Festival, Out on a Limb from T-bar Films tells the story of Vasu, who's love for skiing and the backcountry overcomes all obstacles.
Best of the Backcountry Award winner, Powder Pilgrimage from Joey Howell, chronicles the ventures of two friends ski-bumming it to Valdez, Alaska, a trip we should all take once.
