 The Backcountry Film Festival is produced by Winter Wildlands Alliance as a celebration of the human-powered experience and a gathering place for the backcountry snowsports community. Winter Wildlands Alliance is a national nonprofit organization that partners with groups like Yampatika and Friends of the Routt Backcountry at the local level to inspire and educate the backcountry community to protect and care for their winter landscapes.
