As always this is a Non-Hosted event!  However, if you put your name in the comment
of this event, I will try to save you a seat! 
If you have any questions, please ask!!!!

Now in its 9th year the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival celebrates the human powered winter experience through film. The festival aims to entertain while
helping to raise funds and awareness for Winter Wildlands and our like-minded
partners. The Backcountry Film Festival premieres in Boise ID and then travels
to more than 100 locations worldwide.  Along the way, the Backcountry Film
Festival will be viewed by more than 20,000 outdoor enthusiasts and raise more
than $110,000 each year for local organizations working on advocacy, snow
safety, outdoor education and SnowSchool programs.
