Film Fest

Banff Mountain Film Festival Opens Wednesday in Seattle

It’s the best in snow stunts and jaw-dropping alpine shots.

One hour, 56 minutes. That’s the amount of time it took record-crushing Swiss climber Ueli Steck to scale the Matterhorn’s north face in 2009. (“I’m like a Swiss watch—I’m very efficient,” Steck says in the video. Awesome.) It’s also about how quickly the Banff Mountain Film Festival sells out in Seattle each year at the Mountaineers club. Lucky for us, the adventure sport film fest runs in Olympia, Tacoma, and Port Townsend this week, too. Get your fix of snow stunts November 30–December 10.
