Backcountry Film Festival in Truckee, Calif. tonight (Nov. 19, 2009)
Written By: pauly

With a winter storm that's supposed to drop over a foot of snow on the Sierra this weekend, tonight is the perfect night to check out a Backcountry Film Festival in Truckee, Calif. if you're anywhere near the Lake Tahoe area.

Here are the details, straight from the Snowlands Network website:

Are you dreaming of catching some air in the backcountry as soon as the first big dump of the season hits? Well, there are two things you can do to prepare: wax your boards now and get an early winter fix with your fellow winter addicts at this year’s Backcountry Film Festival.

Now in its fifth year, the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival highlights the beauty, diversity, and fun of the winter backcountry. Filmmakers that travel every corner of the globe submit their best backcountry work, and the top films are assembled into a night of fun for all – whether you like to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or even just stay indoors by the fire in the winter.

Date: Thursday, November 19, 2009

Where: Truckee High School auditorium

Time: Doors open at 6:30 PM and the films run from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Tickets: $10 for adults and $7 for students (available at The Backcountry in Truckee or at the door)

Everyone goes home with a FREE copy of the amazing movie "White Book"

This year, festival goers will vicariously surf the snow with a Japanese calligrapher, test extreme snow conditions in Vermont and ski the brief but majestic winter of Australia. As always, there will be plenty of world-class riding set to killer tunes in dramatic locations both familiar and far-flung.

The films are as diverse as the backcountry experience and will put a smile on the face of even the most winter-averse viewer. This year’s films are:

  • Gentemstick (Sweetgrass Productions)

  • Winter Dreaming (Eucalypt Productions)

  • Flakes (Powderwhore)

  • Generations (Teton Gravity Research)

  • Red Lady (Snow Lion)

  • Fast Grass and Dirty Corn (Ember Photography)

The Film Festival, which travels to 30 communities throughout the western United States from Alaska to Santa Barbara, is hosted in Truckee by Snowlands Network. All funds raised support efforts at forest planning and resource protection in the local community.

Raffle Grand Prize:
The grand prize in this year's raffle is a two-night stay for two people at the amazing Lost Trail Lodge located four miles deep in Coldstream Canyon outside of Truckee, CA. It's value is $347.60. Hopefully you will win the grand prize, but if not, YOU WILL GO HOME WITH A FREE COPY OF "WHITE BOOK". This film contains some of the most amazing avalanche footage ever filmed. The producers claim that no lives were sacrificed in the making of the film; that is truly hard to believe.

Come early for best seats.

Winter Wildlands Alliance is a Boise-based national nonprofit organization, which like Snowlands Network, works to protect winter ecosystems and to promote opportunities for backcountry skiing and snowshoeing.
