The annual Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival is coming to Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, sponsored by several local outdoor groups.
All or portions of 10 films tapped by the Alliance committee will be screened:
• Friday, 7 p.m., at the Eagles Club, 209 Sherman Ave. in Coeur d’Alene. Tickets $7.
• Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. at the Spokane Community College Lair Auditorium. Tickets: $12 general admission, $10 with student I.D. Purchase tickets in advance at spokanebcff.brownpapertickets.com.
The films spotlight a wide range of outdoor pursuits. This year the features include a snowy trek in Mongolia in search of wolverines, the story of how a small community fought to save its local ski area, a poor man’s alternative to heli-skiing, and “Valhalla” – which was edited down in the Banff World Tour to its nude skiing scene.
