The Ute Mountaineer is pleased to be hosting the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Aspen at the historic Wheeler Opera House. Each year we work hard to put together a great lineup of films that we think you are going to love.
This year’s program includes incredible stories like:
THIS MOUNTAIN LIFE: COAST RANGE TRAVERSE
A mother-daughter team set out on a six-month, 2300km ski traverse in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada.
Marcel and Andrezj are a legendary pair of mountaineers. They have been the first ones to conquer the highest and hardest peaks. Despite their different temperaments, they make a great team. Now they face the biggest challenge: reaching the virgin summit of the highest mountain. In order to achieve this, they will have to overcome formidable obstacles, suffer hardships and stand each other for a long time. But Andrezj is no longer willing to continue in Marcel’s shadow.
ICE & PALMS
Bikepacking, summiting mountains and skiing some iconic lines along the way, friends Max and Jochen have one dream – 5 weeks, 1,800 km and 35,000 vertical metres self-propelled across the Alps.
Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour starts with the Banff Mountain Film Festival an international film competition featuring the world’s best footage on mountain subjects. The festival began in 1976 and is held annually on the first weekend in November in Banff, Alberta, Canada.
Immediately after the festival, a selection of the best films entered in the festival goes on tour. The host organization in each tour location chooses a program that reflects the interests of the local community. The Ute Mountaineer has hosted the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour in Aspen every year since 1997.
