2012 Backcountry Bash - Get Your Tickets Now!
There are a lot of reasons why you should attend the 20th Annual CMC Backcountry Bash on November 3 in Golden. Great food, drinks and prizes all with admission. Fabulous auction items. The camaraderie of an evening of fun with fellow backcountry wintersports enthusiasts. Distraction from the election in three days.
For me, the most compelling reason to attend the Backcountry Bash is to build community around our wintertime sports and support CMC's wintertime recreation advocacy program - the Backcountry Snowsports Initiative, or simply BSI. Formed four years ago by merging with the Backcountry Snowsports Alliance, the BSI is a leading Colorado voice for human-powered recreational opportunities in the winter backcountry. Whether you are a snowshoer, cross-county skier, telemarker or winter hiker, BSI seeks to educate and protect our recreation opportunities. BSI is involved in dialog with forest land managers, winter motorsports clubs and other stakeholders to create opportunities for collaborative solutions, and to defend traditionally quiet use areas.
This year's Bash promises to be the best yet. We are pleased to announce that Boulder pro-skier Donny Roth, featured in films like last year's Bash feature Solitaire, will be hosting. We are excited to feature films from Winter Wildlands Alliance 2012 Backcountry Film Festival, food by Chipotle Mexican Grill, drinks by Avery Brewing and others, the traditional silent auction, a live auction of hut stays and much more!
The Backcountry Bash is on November 3 at 5:30 PM at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, CO. Purchase tickets at the CMC website.
