Telluride Mountain Club: “Wild & Scenic” Film Fest

Telluride Mountain Club: “Wild & Scenic” Film Fest

Telluride Mountain Club offers off-season fun with adventure, outdoor & environmental films

Join the Telluride Mountain Club (TMtC) for an evening of inspirational, adrenaline-rushing, thought-provoking films at the Sheridan Opera House. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival ON TOUR screens for the first time in Telluride on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 7 p.m. 


This one-evening showing of 10 films from the three-day Wild & Scenic Environmental Festival held each year in Nevada City, California, features beautiful cinematography from adventure, outdoor exploration and environmental films, some of which include:

Walk on Water: Having been paralyzed from the waist down in a ski accident, Greg Mallory finds new life through whitewater kayaking. Greg’s story is a celebration of the spirit that lives within each of us-pushing us to explore, live and thrive despite all odds.

A Life Well Lived: Legendary Mountaineer Jim Whittaker talks risk, beauty, and adventure on the 50th anniversary of his historic summit of Everest.

Down the Line: Down deep slots and magnificent waterfalls, a handful of dedicated Vancouverites are bringing a new outdoor sport to BC – Canyoneering. None of these canyons have ever been explored, and once in, the only way out is down.

Rock Wall Climbing: How do big wall climbers get their start? With little walls, of course. This may be the case for 8-year-old climber Kathrin Houston, who convinces her father to build a climbing wall in the other half of their small two-car garage.

The Denali Experiment: Free-ride skier Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and big mountain snowboarder Lucas Debari step out of their elements and make an attempt to climb, ski and snowboard Denali. Sage and Lucas get a helping hand from a huge cast of seasoned and professional climbers and ski mountaineers from the North Face Athlete Team, including Hilaree O’Neill, Conrad Anker and more, as the two embark on the hardest expedition of their lives.

The screening includes raffles and giveaways throughout the night. Entry is FREE to current Telluride Mountain Club members, $10 at the door for general entry that includes a year membership to TMtC.
