The Colorado Mountain Club will be sponsoring the ninth annual Backcountry Film Festival, from the Winter Wildlands Alliance, and I am personally pleased to see that it will be returning to Neptune Mountaineering on Thursday, December 12, at 7pm. It is also showing in Golden at the AMC, on Friday, December 6. This will be a collection of short films that are “compelling and entertaining stories of the backcountry, non-motorized recreation, and environmental preservation.” Expect to see some great skiing and snowboarding! The films were judged to be the best of their class, and assembled into a 90 minute show. Sounds like a really special experience; I hope to see you there!
