If you’ve been living under a rock and have wondered what all the KEEP JUMBO WILD bumper stickers are about… or if you’re a longtime Jumbo supporter, then you wont want to miss JUMBO WILD.
Local director Nick Waggoner and Sweetgrass Productions are famous for creating ski movies with depth. And now they’ve put their creative efforts into this gripping doc that recounts the decades-long battle over the future of British Columbia’s iconic Jumbo Valley – hIghlighting 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.
As Sweetgrass says: “this film exposes the constant battle to preserve our environment. It shows how we value the land and why we care deeply for our “wild gardens”.
