Banff Mountain Film & Book Festival Opens

Fresh Snow in Banff today launches an annual mountain culture festival.

Book and film lovers will gather at the Banff Centre today to kick off a week-long extravaganza.  From the high Arctic to the Himalayas, stories of mountain life and adventure show daily.

The Alpine Club of Canada and Association of Canadian Mountain Guides host the annual Mountain Guides Ball fund raiser tonight at Banff's Rimrock Hotel.

Take time to visit the Whyte Museum's new history hall "Gateway to the Rockies" designed by Michale Lang and a talented team.  Y2Y is showing in the art gallery.  Banff comes to Edmonton's Upper Crust cafe this Monday as Michale joins local writers for poetry night.
