How do you tie together urgent yet complicated issues like mountain biodiversity, the future of snow, rural economics, human-powered backcountry adventure, local connection to the natural world, and conserving wildlife all in one Festival program, let alone one film? In this season’s line-up, one film answered that question by telling a story about wolverines and backcountry skiing.

The new plan applies a variety of management designations to thoughtfully manage the busiest parts of the forest, protect wilderness values, and benefit wildlife.

We strongly encourage all Teton winter backcountry travelers to help protect bighorn sheep by observing this winter’s voluntary closures.

It’s not just scenery that’s at stake. The Ambler road jeopardizes the future of the wildlife and people in the Brooks Range. Take action today!
