MK College Ambassador, Trevor Fulton, and the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival

We have hosted the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival for a few years now and MK has been a huge supporter. The films are winter oriented and revolve around the human powered experience. It’s a great evening of films, friends and fun for the local backcountry winter sports community here in Moscow. We had around 180 come this year, which packed the local community theater. The films consisted of everything from snowboarding to big mountain skiing. We had a raffle with prizes from MK and other local vendors at intermission which really got people excited. Overall it was a great event that got students and the community stoked for snow and a great cause. Thanks MK!
