Australis: An Antarctic Ski Odyssey at CMC’s Backcountry Bash!
From the trailer, below, it looks like they had a great, adventurous, and at times epic trip to the snows of the south. I especially liked the final quote of the trailer when skier Andrea Binning notes something important – and oft-forgotten – about the mountains:
You've really got to respect the mountains…You're not better than them.
Good thoughts we all should remember in the hills.
Anyway, I mention this film because any of you Coloradans out there should mark your calendars for November 13th for the Colorado Mountain Club's 18th Annual Backcountry Bash. After hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction, Chris Davenport will show the full film, and then have a session of Q&A and a book signing.
So, check out the trailer below, buy a ticket for the Backcountry Bash, and get ready for a great evening at the start of ski season!
