celebrating the winter human-powered experience

We are a progressive festival dedicated to uniting the winter backcountry community. 

Come out to meet and support your local Grassroots Organization, University Outdoor Program, Avalanche Center, or Youth Environmental Education Program. All proceeds raised at a Backcountry Film Festival screening go directly back to the local host organization.

Immerse yourself in a night of films that capture the spirit of winter. Adventure, environment and climate, youth outdoors, ski culture- you’ll find it all in this award winning lineup. 




Film Finalists 2016-2017

We cannot thank our filmmaker friends enough for their work. Films for the Backcountry Film Festival are donated by folks who are passionate about the power of storytelling and the human-powered journey.
