Now in its 9th year the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film
Festival celebrates the human powered winter experience through film.
The festival aims to entertain while helping to raise funds and awareness for Winter Wildlands and our like-minded
partners. The Backcountry Film Festival will be viewed in many cities by more than 20,000 outdoor enthusiasts and raises more
than $110,000 each year for organizations working on advocacy, snow safety, outdoor education and SnowSchool programs.
Thanks to these WSTC members who have donated this season to the Club's Conservation Fund (as of 12/9/2013).

The Washington Ski Touring Club is a Seattle-based, recreation-oriented
club of about 360 members who organize nordic classic, skate, telemark,
and backcountry touring ski trips. We also have a monthly meeting with
interesting programs on equipment, tours, weather, ski destinations,
etc. (October to May).
We love to ski and encourage you to join us! Our
monthly meetings and potluck events are open to all. However, much of
our website such as Multi-Day Trips, Discussion Forums, Nordic
Patrol, Weekend Weather forecasts, and our Newsletter are open only to
Day Trips? Where are they?
The Club would really like to have some members schedule their day trips at least a week ahead so we can put them on the website. Why is this important? People who are not members but are looking at our website and want to try out the Club and go on a day trip could see day trips on the calendar. They can't see the "impromptu" day trips that are posted through the Forum. Just send your day trip info to the Trip Coordinator and Webmaster and we'll get it onto the calendar.
Do you have some trip or event photos you'd like to share? To add them to our Photo Pages, click on the arrow next to YOUR Name that is in the upper right corner of the home page. Click on Profile. When you Profile shows, one of the items is Website/Photo Albums. Take it from there - it's easy.
Thank you to Ken Walkky, Sharon Chen, and Barbara Mandula for
volunteering to take on Board positions. For the complete list of Board members, you may click on Membership/Officers.
