Backcountry Film Festival

The Backcountry Film Festival Returns to Gunnison on January 19, 2017

Let it snow! HCCA is excited to once again bring the Backcountry Film Festival to Gunnison to kick off the winter season. Join us at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at the Western State Colorado University Center to get inspired to seek the snow less traveled. Thank you to Western’s Wilderness Pursuits to hosting this event at Western!

This year’s festival, produced by the Winter Wildlands Alliance, is sure to impress. With a mix of films about backcountry skiing and snowboarding and different themes from adventure to environmentalism, all of the films bring a unique view on how our favorite winter sports have progressed over the years. Check out for a complete lineup of the films.

HCCA will be offering student membership specials, and there will also be Crested Butte Avalanche Center Forecasters on hand to chat about safety in the backcountry.

We’ll see you there!
