Wade, fireplace Ethnographer, writer, photographer, filmmaker, licensed river guide, Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society and major supporter of Mountainfilm in Telluride, Wade Davis returns for the 33rd annual gathering of the tribe, May 27 – May 30, 2011.

Wade is joined by other wide awake beings, among them, writer Terry Tempest Williams; the voice of youth eco-activists, Tim DeChristopher; eco-adventurer David de Rothschild; Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, co-creators of Peabody-winning PBS documentary “King Corn.”

With this year’s line-up, Mountainfilm director David Holbrooke may just manage to trump last year, which was Mountainfilm’s best year ever.

At Mountainfilm 2011, Wade is scheduled to speak about the Stikine Valley in British Columbia, his second home, now threatened by development and the subject one of his latest book, Sacred Headwaters, due out this fall. He will also offer his spin on Everest based on over a decade of research and summed up in another recent book, Into the Silence: The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest, also out this year.
