Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival 7pm

Brought to you by the Chippewa Valley Nordic Ski Team


"My name is Lars Long and I am one of the coaches of the Chippewa Valley Nordic Ski Team. For the past 2 years I have co-organized the sold out showing of the Banff Mountain Film Festival at the Woodland Theatre at UWEC to help support cross country skiing, Chippewa Valley Nordic Ski Team and Tower Ridge. We have great sponsors who have helped bring the film festival to Eau Claire. This year, the Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour is planned for Sunday April 28th, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the NEW PABLO CENTER with increased seating.

Our goal in presenting the Banff Film Festival is to provide area residents motivation to get outside! This provides a unique opportunity to showcase all the outdoor opportunities the Chippewa Valley has to offer in a NEW, Expo format. Local individuals, organizations and businesses will be excited to showcase how they can help YOU get outside, and get active! We have organizations lined up that promote outdoor activities including skate boarding, yoga, pickle ball, mountain biking, running, skiing, and more! The Expo will take place in the Pablo Center lobby, and we look forward to the beginning of a larger tradition to support the outdoor community of Eau Claire! Hope to see you all there." -Lars
