Thank you to everyone who came out and supported MBA and WWA at the Backcountry Film Fest


Another amazing group of films and people all came together for a couple great evenings in Bozeman and Missoula.  We raised a good amount of money to help improve access to backcountry skiing and snowboarding around Missoula and Bozeman.  We couldn’t do any of this without you.  Thank you.


Montana Backcountry Alliance is a group formed in 2005 with the goal of preserving human-powered winter recreation experiences, reducing conflict, improving access, and promoting safety. MBA represents backcountry and Nordic skiers and snowshoers and works with agencies like the Forest Service.

We track and engage with public lands policy that is relevant to the human-powered, winter backcountry community. Our all volunteer board lives and rides in western Montana, with representatives in Missoula and Bozeman.

We also host the Backcountry Film Festival, put on by Winter Wildlands Alliance, every year. This year, 2020 the Missoula show will be on February 7 at The Wilma in downtown Missoula. The Bozeman show will be on February 5 at the Rialto Theater in downtown Bozeman.
