Winter Wildlands Alliance, a Boise-based nonprofit working at the national level to inspire and educate the backcountry community to protect and care for their winter landscapes, invites its home community to gather and celebrate winter revelry November 17th and 18th. Two major events will be held in downtown Boise.
The Backcountry Film Festival Premiere Screening is November 17th at the Basque Center. Enjoy a night of films that capture the spirit of winter. Adventure, environment and climate, youth outdoors, outdoor culture- you’ll find it all in this award winning lineup. Come meet the crew that brings the entire film festival to life. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., films start at 7:30 p.m.
The Backcountry Film Festival is produced by Winter Wildlands Alliance and is renowned for its mission to bring together and unite the backcountry snowsports community, worldwide. The Backcountry Film Festival is in its 12th year and will tour at 100 locations worldwide, reaching over 25,000 attendees.
There will be the best raffle in town, visions of powder, friends, and BEER from Odell Brewing CO.
The SnowBall is November 18th at the Linen Building. High energy bluegrass band from Colorado, Rapidgrass, is prepping for its Idaho debut at the SnowBall. SnowBall is a benefit concert for Bogus Basin and SnowSchool- a program getting over 32,000 kids outside this winter. Did we mention that costumes are involved? This is a “big kid” party with a semiformal flare- think ski bum meets prom date. Title sponsor and local Boise company, Realtime Adventure Data, is taking care of you to make sure this is the season party you do not want to miss. Odell brews, bluegrass dancing, epic raffle- all proceeds go to getting kids outside this winter! Doors open at 6 p.m., band starts at 7 p.m.
