Winter is full of ups and downs so why not celebrate winter and embrace the UP?  It's getting time to dust off the skis, pull on your parka, grab your ski buddies, and celebrate the fun and beauty of winter at the Ninth Annual Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival.  

The ten unique films included in this year's Backcountry Film Festival will inspire you to embrace the UP.  The films come from renowned filmmakers who search backcountry corners across the globe to submit their best work, and from grassroots filmmakers who take a video camera out on their weekend excursions and submit their best films. The festival was created in 2004 to highlight Winter Wildlands Alliance's efforts to preserve and promote winter landscapes for human-powered users. Funds raised stay in local communities to support like-minded, human-powered recreation efforts and to raise awareness of winter management issues, avalanche training/safety and winter education programs.  This year's program includes:

Valhalla from Sweetgrass Productions and winner of the 2013 "Best of Festival," is the tale of one man's search to rediscover the freedom of his youth. Feeling the distant heat of its fire still burning in the mountains of the frozen north, he sets out in search of those tending the flamethe untamed, the wild, and the outcast dwelling on the fringe. (PG-13 for brief mild nudity)

Trail Break by Powderwhore is a beautiful black and white portrait of deep powder skiing.

Morning Rituals, is a day in the life of an undercover ski bum.  Presented by Chris Dickey of Orange and Purple.

Youth, from filmmaker Corey Rich, inspires us to pack up the kids and proves that backcountry skiing is a family affair.

Bolton Valley is the story of how a small community fought to save their beloved ski area.  Winner of "Best Conservation Film" award.

Nokhoi Zeekh: In search of the Wolverine.  Five Americans set off on a month-long ski expedition through northern Mongolia to document one of the world's most iconic but least-known winter species.

Bigger Braver, filmmaker Luc Mehl turns the camera on a young female athlete who shares her insight into the courage and strength involved in seeking big mountain adventure.  Winner of "Best Short Film" award.

From filmmaker and storyteller Fitz Cahall at Duct Tape then Beer comes Strong.  Capturing Roger Strong's reflections about moving forward after a tragic avalanche.  

Poor Man's Heli, skier Antoine Boisselier thinks outside the skin track and comes up with a new and unique way to the top of the mountain.  From Mike Douglas at Switchback Entertainment.

From filmmaker Jason Thompson comes Take the Ride, asking the question; "when you have a dream will you buy the ticket? Will you Take the Ride?"
