​Please join the Outdoor Club for a film showing of Jumbo Wild on Wednesday, November 30th at 6:00 PM in Oakes 208.


For decades, First Nations, conservationists, backcountry skiers and snowboarders have fought a proposed large-scale ski resort deep in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia. After 24 years of opposition, what more will it take to keep Jumbo wild for good?


Jumbo Wild highlights the tension between the protection of wilderness and ever-increasing development interests in wild places, while bringing to life the passionate fight to protect the Jumbo Valley. Set against a backdrop of incredible backcountry beauty, Jumbo Wild documents all sides of a divisive issue.
