Eddie Bauer First Ascent guide Caroline George returns to community and elite mixed climbing competition at the Ouray Ice Festival.
The spirit of adventure was alive and well in Telluride, Colorado, over Memorial Day weekend. The Mountainfilm documentary film festival brought together a couple thousand people to watch films, discuss causes, and enjoy some amazing spring weather in a spectacular setting.
Eddie Bauer/ First Ascent has partnered with Mountainfilm in Telluride again this year to celebrate the untamable spirit of adventure and raise awareness about issues that might threaten our planet.
Movies and mountains, it turns out, are a winning combination. Just look at the 30-year run of the Mountainfilm Festival in Telluride, CO. In fact, Mountainfilm has built such a reputation and loyal following that a new spin-off festival was launched this year in Aspen.
It isn’t Cannes. Or Sundance. But for filmgoers who prefer high mountains to high glamour, and who value authentic alpine air more than acquired artistic airs, the Mountainfilm Festival in Telluride, CO is more than worth the effort. Launched in 1979 to celebrate climbing, mountaineering and environmental activism
