February Wrap up...

 5Point Film Festival


This past month we brought 5Point Film Festival back to Seattle for the second year in a row. Packing out SIFF Cinema with over 400 psyched climbers, skiers, mountain bikers and outdoor enthusiasts we raised over $3k for The American Alpine Club, Northwest Avalanche Center & Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.

This event would not have been possible without all our amazing sponsors & all of you who came out to support this amazing event.
