Alpinist Mag gathers best-of-the-best for 2nd Barry Corbet Film Fest

Alpinist Magazine celebrates Barry Corbet’s "...athletic and artistic spirit with a series of films and presentations that evoked the joys of deep snow, wild water and steep stone."

Each night will include other films, from classics to world premieres, within the selected disciplines. “The featured films showcase the common threads that unite skiers, surfers and climbers across borders, disciplines and generations,” says Christian Beckwith, Alpinist Editor and founder of the BCFF. “The parties before and after the screenings, the world-class presenters and the magical energy of Jackson in winter all underscore our goal: to throw the best party of the year in Jackson Hole.”

Barry Corbet was a Jackson Hole legend who ticked the first ski descent of Buck Mountain and named the infamous ski run Corbet’s Couloir at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. A former Snow King ski instructor, Exum Mountain Guide, and founder of the Jackson Hole Mountain Guides, he was also an American climbing legend who helped put the first American team on Everest.
