“Peak Obsession,” a film by Bjarne Salen, is playing in the Backcountry Film Festival

Winter Wildlands Alliance just wrapped up a weekend full of events: the world premiere of the 15th Annual Backcountry Film Festival, the Snowball fundraiser for SnowSchool, and the three-day Grassroots Advocacy Conference. In Boise, Idaho, the “Wild Weekend” was a chance to showcase all that happens in the Winter Wildlands Alliance office. But it was also an opportunity to connect people with each other, to share knowledge and experience, and to inspire.

The 15th Annual Backcountry Film Festival will be screening documentaries and ski movies about athletic pursuit in the mountains, artistic vision, friendship, and how the snowsports community is adapting to a changing environment. Premiering in Boise, Idaho, on Friday, Oct 25 at The Egyptian Theatre, the Backcountry Film Festival will be traveling to mountain towns across the country and the world throughout the fall and winter.
