The League to Save Lake Tahoe and Lake of the Sky Outfitters will host a screening of Patagonia’s “Jumbo Wild” next Thursday, March 10.
The film, which will show at the Beach Retreat & Lodge, documents a development fight over Canada’s Jumbo Valley.
“Directed by Nick Waggoner and Sweetgrass Productions, ‘Jumbo Wild’ documents the epic tug of war — between community members, First Nations and conservationists, resort developers and politicians — over the future of Jumbo,” according to a description of the film from Patagonia. “Set against a backdrop of incredible backcountry ski and snowboard footage, ‘Jumbo Wild’ features unprecedented documentation of all sides of a divisive issue bringing the passionate local fight to protect the Jumbo Valley to life for a global audience for the first time.
“The Jumbo Glacier Resort is a proposed four-season ‘European-style’ expansive ski resort with thousands of beds in the heart of the wild, remote Jumbo Valley and providing access to several glaciers. There are currently eight ski resorts within a four hour radius of Invermere: Panorama, Kimberley, Fernie, Kicking Horse, Revelstoke, Whitewater, Nakiska, Norquay, Sunshine and Lake Louise — none of them are running at capacity.”
Staff from the League, also known as Keep Tahoe Blue, will share how challenges like those depicted in “Jumbo Wild” relate to Lake Tahoe at the screening.
The Beach Retreat & Lodge is located 3411 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.
