Join us for Mountainfilm's annual fundraiser on December 26 at the Sheridan Opera House! We will host a special screening of Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey to celebrate Beckey's legacy and support Mountainfilm.
Most climbers claim passion for the sport. But few, if any, reach the level of single-minded obsession that seized Fred Beckey as a teenager and held him in its grasp for more than 80 years. Beckey, who passed away in October at the age of 94, was one of the most accomplished, prolific and unrelenting climbers in the history of the sport.
There will be two opportunities to see the film, 5:00 and 7:30 p.m., and a pair of Wagner Custom Skis will be featured in a silent auction. Director, Telluride local and Mountainfilm Commitment Grant recipient Dave O'Leske will take the stage for a Q&A following both screenings.
