The awe that mountainous landscapes evoke is universal, yet most of us seldom venture into true wilderness. A mother-daughter team sets out for six months in a tent in the winter mountains; a group of nuns inhabits a mountain retreat to be closer to God; a photographer buried in an avalanche; an impassioned alpinist; a focused snow artist; a couple who has been living off-grid in the mountains for nearly 50 years. For them, the draw of the mountains is so strong that their lives must revolve around it. Shot in cinematic detail, This Mountain Life is a riveting portrait of human passion set high in the snowy peaks to the north of us in British Columbia. What is it that leads these adventurous people to sacrifice everything – comfort, family, personal safety – for a life in the mountains?

Snow and Spire: Flights to Winter in the North Cascade Range

One winner of our raffle will receive a copy of “Snow & Spire” by John Scurlock. It showcases photographs taken from the cockpit of the author’s home-built airplane. In 2002, John embarked on a nine-year quest to fly to and photograph every corner of Washington State’s North Cascade Range in winter. The images he captured provide a breathtaking vision of one of America’s most magnificent mountain ranges in its most beautiful, dramatic, and savage season.
