Thursday Getaway: Jumbo Wild Trailer

Until now, the story of the Jumbo Valley, which lies deep within the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia, has been relatively untold. But thanks to our friends at Patagonia and Sweetgrass Productions, this true tale of locals' 25-year-long battle to protect the Valley from a large ski resort is being brought to life.


Today, we invite you to get away in the powder of these mountains. Take a look at the trailer for the film: "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."
