The 12th Annual Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival will show in Sun Valley, Idaho, on February 9th at The Sun Valley Opera House. All proceeds benefit Nordic and Backcountry Skiers Alliance of Idaho, Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center and Winter Wildlands Alliance.
The Nordic and Backcountry Skiers Alliance is a Wood River Valley organization that represents Nordic, backcountry skiers and other human powered snow sports enthusiasts who relish the groomed cross country ski trails and backcountry powder in Blaine County. Organized in 1999, the Skiers Alliance works to ensure a quality recreation experience for all users and supports the important educational programs and efforts of the Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center to make sure that backcountry winter travel is done safely.
The Backcountry Film Festival is produced each year by Winter Wildlands Alliance as a celebration of the human-powered experience and a gathering place for the backcountry snowsports community. Winter Wildlands Alliance is a nonprofit organization working at the national level to inspire and educate the backcountry community to protect and care for their winter landscapes. Funds raised at each screening stay in the local community to support human-powered recreation and conservation efforts, winter education and avalanche/safety programs and to raise awareness of winter management issues.
The 2016-2017 Backcountry Film Festival will tour more than 100 cities from mid-November to late March. 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.
