The festival is actually a 2 nite showing - films differ each day but I'm only posting for Friday night. Feel free to purchase tickets for either day or both. $20/showing.
Will call opens at 6:00, doors open at 6:30 and showing at 7:00. Will be in the will call line at 6:00. Will try to reserve seats but no guarantee.
As mountain bikers, we understand the feel of the mountain as well as respect for the environment.
