Watch the Jumbo Wild Trailer from Patagonia

Jumbo Wild is a gripping, hour-long documentary film by Sweetgrass Productions.

The film tells the true story of the decades-long battle over the future of British Columbia’s iconic Jumbo Valley and highlights the tension between the protection of wilderness and the backcountry experience and ever-increasing development interests in wild places.

Set against a backdrop of incredible backcountry ski and snowboard footage, Jumbo Wild documents all sides of a divisive issue bringing the passionate local fight to protect the Jumbo Valley to life for the first time.

While the area is known for its backcountry skiing, a number of moderate mountaineering objectives have been climbed. The film will be out in October 2015.
