Survive winter with films, prizes and education!

Posted on Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010 by »

Film (and great prizes) on the 10th, Winter 101 on the 11th!

Got your Christmas shopping all done? No? How would you like to win a Patagonia jacket for Mom and snag a full season pass at Schweitzer for Uncle Bob? (OK. You can keep the pass, if you insist.) These are just a couple of the prizes to be given away at the Backcountry Film Fest to be held December 10 at the Panida.

And the next day, you can start your winter survival education at the Sandpoint Community Hall with Kevin Davis, USFS avalanche expert; and Dennison Webb and Erik Yost of Selkirk Outdoor Leadership & Education.
