Tuesday January 8th BCMC Social Event

Forever Upwards: Climbing Mexico's Highest Mountains

by Steven Levkin, Taylor Livingston & Richard Carey

 

Doors @7:00 PM at the ANZA Club

Social Event @7:30 PM


When Steven Levkin, Taylor Livingston and Richard Carey set off to climb three of Mexico’s highest mountains, they had no idea how many difficulties they would need to face. As novice climbers and amateur filmmakers, this expedition became a true adventure forcing them far out of their comfort zones and pushing the team to its limit.

 

Along with a screening of their film, Forever Upwards: Mexico, these climbers will speak of major factors that were difficult to portray in the film. Corrupted video files, snot-freezing windchill and navigating the unknown. These are only a few of the many unexpected challenges this team needed to overcome while climbing Pico de Orizaba, North America’s third highest mountain.

 

Forever Upwards: Mexico will be playing at the social but you can also find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZgOpCZT17A

 

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, January 8th. The entrance door will open at 7 pm and we will begin the evening at 7:30 PM with an Update from the Executive. Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 117 people in the hall. Once at capacity we will be forced to turn attendees away. Feel free to grab a drink at the bar before the social starts.

Tuesday December 11th BCMC Social Event 

Finding The Line

Film Screening

with special guest Anna Segal

 

Doors @7:00 PM ANZA Club

Social Event @7:30 PM

FREE for Members

$10 For Non-Members
 

FINDING THE LINE is a film about fear, it’s paralyzing grip on humans and how it affects our decision-making.

Olympian and X Games Slopestyle champion Anna Segal and her Freeride World Tour, big mountain skiing sister, Nat Segal, use their skiing to understand fear and how it manifests in the two siblings’ lives.

Throughout their careers as professional skiers, Anna and Nat have both constantly been challenged by fear. Yet, despite being brought up under the same roof, they have learned to deal with it in almost contrasting ways, neither leading them to the success they dreamed of. 

A heartfelt journey on the knife’s edge of big mountains throughout Canada and France push them to their physical and emotional limits. The extreme skiing mecca of Alaska pushes them beyond. 

The Australian sisters soon realize that the most important lessons lie within each others' approach. Equipped with greater insight, they negotiate the fine balance between staying in their comfort zone and taking too much risk, learning that sometimes to move forward, you need to understand what is holding you back.

The BCMC AGM

by the BCMC Executive

followed by...

Avalanche Awareness Night

by Abby Cooper, Phil Alma, Polina Andreychenko 

Doors @7:00 PM ANZA Club

Social Event @7:30 PM
 

The night will begin with the annual BCMC Annual General Meeting, followed by a talk from Abby Cooper, an Avalanche Ambassador for Avalanche Canada. Abby will present on the Mt. Harvey incident that occurred on April 8, 2017. Afterwards, there will be trivia, prizes, and beer!

"The Mt. Harvey case study will focus on learning outcomes that occurred from a tragedy in familiar terrain. Five snowshoers died that day. We hope to help educate more "summer" recreationists, or new backcountry enthusiasts, about the winter backcountry hazards so this scenario does not occur in the future." 

The Social will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, November 13th. The entrance door will open at 7 pm and we will begin the evening at 7:30 PM with the AGM and an Update from the Executive.  Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 117 people in the hall.
