Since 1976, the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival, a flagship program of Banff Centre, has been an industry leader in the celebration of Mountain Culture. The festival promotes understanding and appreciation of the world’s mountain places by creating opportunities for people to share and find inspiration in mountain experiences, ideas, and visions. Following the festival each fall, the annual World Tour reaches more than 40 countries on 7 continents, the largest adventure film tour on the planet.

Stand on the highest peaks, ski the steepest slopes, and be a part of the gripping adventures waiting for you in this year’s Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour. From exploring remote landscapes to adrenaline-fueled action sports, films selected for the 2023/2024 World Tour are sure to captivate and amaze you. Be moved. Be inspired.

The Base Camp is honored to host the Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour and honored to donate all proceeds to support the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Foundation, Billings Trailnet, and American Prairie Reserve.

Billings + Helena • Smartwool Second Cut project



We want your unwanted socks! We’re teaming up with SmartwoolMaterial Return™ circularity platform to collect
and deconstruct hard-to-recycle socks and turn them into new goods.
Bring in your old socks and get 25% off a new pair of Smartwool socks!

What we need: Clean socks only, please

We prefer Merino wool socks, but we’ll accept socks of all materials, brands, colors, and sizes

Just single socks (nothing bundled or bagged)

In 1994, we invented our first-ever Merino wool performance sock, the Classic Hike. And now, that comfort comes full circle. Our new Second Cut™ Hike sock combines the iconic fit and feel of our original sock with circular yarn utilized from our sock take-back program. That’s right, We’re making new socks out of old socks. Join the mission by sending us your unwanted socks and we’ll work to give them life beyond the landfill.
