This is MBA’s main fundraiser for the year. We use the money raised to support our plowing efforts in MSO (Gash, West Twin Creek) and BZN (Hyalite, in partnership with FOH and others).

This is the first year since the pandemic that we’ve been able to host the events in person, like we used to. We’re counting on you all to come out, join us, and have a blast…all while helping us keep access plowed and furthering our policy work. THANKS!!!!!

Missoula: We’re back at the Wilma for another great celebration of all things backcountry! Join us for some great films, a chance to catch up with Missoula’s rad backcountry community, win some raffle prizes, and get stoked for the rest of the backcountry season.

Check out this great story from Backcountry Magazine about Marshall Mountain! We are stoked to continue our work with the City of Missoula, Izzy Dog, LLC, MTB Missoula, and others to improve backcountry skiing and riding at Marshall. Give it a read and thanks for all the support!

This year will be a busy one in the backcountry. Please be safe, respectful, helpful, and patient as more folks turn to the backcountry this season. Be sure to check avalanche forecasts, ski and ride within your abilities, and stay safe at trailheads and summits. Healthcare systems are at capacity and we can all do our part to recreate responsibly this winter.
