VIMFF World Tour 2019 Whistler Line Up:

Wolfpack

The Braford-Lefebvre family chose to live in Silverton, Colorado in order to raise their family wild. Through hard times and the best ones, running is their tool for experiencing life together.

We’re Going Where?

A search for breathtaking alpine descents and the chance to ride amidst the sacred Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountain) leads Whistler mountain bikers on a journey. Altitude sickness, nausea, bike malfunctions, and fatigue are only the short list of hurdles they have to overcome to complete this trip.

Notes From The Wall

19 days on a 1200 meter high vertical wall – that’s what it took for a trio of Belgian climbers (Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll, Nicolas Favresse and Siebe Vanhee) to complete the first free ascent of “El Regalo de Mwono” on Torres del Paine, Patagonia, although they had planned for maximum 15 days autonomy.

Sound Water

From the Headwaters of the Elaho River, down the Squamish and into Howe Sound- Sound Water is a film that questions our pursuit for adventure, our relationship with nature and with ourselves.

Liv Along the Way

In March 2017, former World Champion sport climber Liv Sansoz, set out to climb all 82 4000m peaks in European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned.


The Frenchy

Jacques Houot, 82, may have just found the fountain of youth. The Carbondale, Colorado based French ski racer, downhill mountain biker, road cyclist and incorrigible flirt is the embodiment of joi de vivre.
