Guest speaker & intermission.

Feature:

Winterland (83 mins, 2019)

Today’s mountain athletes can only stand as tall as those who came before, the pioneers of the past who followed their own path and passion. This story of adventure is far from over, as a new crop of modern-day pioneers are eager to make their names. The technology and style might evolve, but the rush, excitement, and pure fun remain eternal, bonding past, present, and future riders. The film will follow these individuals as they leave their own mark on these fabled locations.

Festival Sponsors: Meaford Culture Foundation, Blue Mountain Resort, Miller Golf Design Group.
