The Colorado Mountain Club (CMC) has been delivering conservation, education, and recreational opportunities to the Colorado public since 1912. The CMC acts as a gateway to the mountains for novices and experts alike, offering an array of year-round activities, events and schools centered on outdoor recreation.

Produced each year as a celebratory, backcountry community event by the Winter Wildlands Alliance, the 17th Annual Backcountry Film Festival film line-up is full of snowy, cinematic adventure sure to inspire both the local backcountry and general communities. Winter Wildlands Alliance is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving winter wildlands and a quality, human-powered, snow sports experience on public lands.

According to Forest Service & Bureau of Land Management Volunteer and Partnership Coordinator Connor Maher, “Adventure, environment and climate, youth outdoors, ski culture- you’ll find it all in this award-winning lineup.”
