The 12th annual Backcountry Film Festival comes to Pagosa Springs on Saturday, Jan. 28, to benefit the Colorado Mountain Club’s Backcountry Snowsports Initiative (BSI). Enjoy an incredible slate of winter films and learn about BSI’s recreation advocacy, mapping projects and more.

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.

Produced by the Boise-based nonprofit Winter Wildlands Alliance, the Backcountry Film Festival is renowned for its mix of professional and grassroots films combining epic powder shots with a twist of environmental activism.

The event proceeds support the Colorado Mountain Club’s BSI — your voice for human-powered winter recreation. BSI advocates for backcountry skiers, split-boarders, snowshoers and winter mountaineers to ensure access to and protection of pristine winter landscapes throughout the state.
