This year’s Winter Wildlands Alliance’s Backcountry Film Festival Tour is wrapping up a stellar year. Celebrating the human-powered experience, the festival promotes the work of grassroots filmmakers who tell entertaining and compelling stories of the backcountry, non-motorized outdoor recreation and environmental preservation.

High fives and fist pumps to all who came out to support the film festival. The 9th annual film festival toured 90 cities, 4 continents, 6 countries, 16 states and was enjoyed by over 13,000 outdoor enthusiasts!

Collectively, the 9th annual Backcountry Film Festival raised over $140,000 dollars for our Grassroots Members, SnowSchool sites and University Outdoor Education Programs. The dollars raised benefitted local communities by funding outdoor education programs, Avalanche Centers and the purchasing of winter equipment.

The Backcountry Film Festival is made possible with generous support from our like minded friends in the outdoor industry. The success and growth of the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival is made possible with support from;
