Looking for a way to assuage your lack-of-snow blues? Come pray for snow with a couple hundred other powder junkies tonight during the always-epic Backcountry Film Festival.
We suggest that you arrive early since the show is likely to sell out as it did at Thursday night's screening in Portland. In addition to experiencing epic footage while sipping -- or guzzling -- an adult beverage, filmgoers are also supporting the work of one of the preeminent backcountry ski advocacy groups, the Winter Wildlands Alliance, which is the organizer and beneficiary of 30 city tour. The Boise-based organization stumps for increased access to and preservation of non-motorized recreation areas, including the proposed backcountry zone on Tumalo Mtn.
