A massive, new ski area deep in the wilds of British Columbia...sounds good, right? Maybe not. For 25 years, local people - First Nations, conservationists, backcountry skiers, and snowboarders - have clashed with developers over a proposed, large-scale ski resort in the Jumbo Valley. To the people of the Ktunaxa nation, the valley is home to 400 generations of their ancestors, and also to the grizzly bear. JUMBO WILD shows both sides of this dream/nightmare scenario and asks the question, “If we don't stand up for this valley, what will we do for the next one?” Running time: 60 minutes. This film is not rated.
Panel discussion to follow. Co-sponsored by High Country Conservation Advocates.
