The 21st annual Backcountry Bash is the Colorado Mountain Club’s signature winter event, a celebration of the state’s premier mountain-adventure organization dedicated to recreation, conservation, and education. The Backcountry Bash is a fundraising event for the Colorado Mountain Club’s Backcountry Snowsports Initiative program and CMC's conservation work. The Backcountry Snowsports Initiative works to protect the winter backcountry and human-powered recreational opportunities. We seek to educate and build a constituency of backcountry skiers, snowshoers, and other users who value the solitude and reward of the winter backcountry experience. This year's Bash is hosted by pro backcountry skier Donny Roth. Food by Chipotle Mexican Grill, drinks by Avery Brewing and others, the traditional silent auction, a live auction of hut stays and more, and a special screening of one of the season's hottest ski films fill out the evening.
