The 13th Annual Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival will show in Laramie on February 15th at the Gryphon Theatre. All proceeds benefit the Wyoming Wilderness Association. Donation accepted at the door, and beer and raffle items will be for sale.

The Wyoming Wilderness Association (WWA) is a grassroots, non-profit organization that works to protect Wyoming’s public wild lands. Our mission is to defend Wyoming's magnificent wild landscapes from the pressures of development, mismanagement, and commodification. We use advocacy, education, and outreach to ensure these public lands remain pristine and intact for every American citizen to enjoy now and into the future.

The Backcountry Film Festival is produced by Winter Wildlands Alliance as a celebration of the human-powered experience and a gathering place for the backcountry snowsports community. Winter Wildlands Alliance is a national nonprofit organization that partners with groups like the Wyoming Wilderness Association at the local level to inspire and educate the backcountry community to protect and care for their winter landscapes. Funds raised at each screening stay in the local community to support human-powered recreation and conservation efforts, winter education and avalanche/safety programs and to raise awareness of winter management issues.
