Win Tickets to The Telluride Mountain Film Tour

Need some more inspiration to get out and adventure? Our friends at Aspire Outdoor are bringing the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival on its first national tour of Australia and New Zealand in February-April 2017 and we are giving away a double pass to your local screening.
Held every year since 1979, Telluride Mountainfilm is a documentary film festival that showcases nonfiction stories about environmental, cultural, climbing, political and social justice issues in Telluride, Colorado, USA. Mountainfilm aims to educate, inspire and motivate audiences.
The inaugural tour will focus on the best outdoor adventure films from the annual festival in Telluride including some inspiring stores about female adventurers.
In The Mysteries, follow Australia’s own Krystle Wright as she goes on a tenacious, and perhaps crazy, quest to chase down an elusive BASE jump shot and provides a glimpse into the kind of singular passion that drives people to reach their goals, regardless of what stands in the way.
Angel Collinson will show the audience why she won the award for the Best Female Freeride Performance at the International Freeskiing Film Festival in Angel Annihilates Alaska. While in the Great Siberian Traverse Ingrid Backstrom will travel via the Trans-Siberian railway for a ski trip that is as much about trans-continental travel as it is about shredding in all its forms: backcountry skiing, resort skiing, powder skiing and so much more.
The tour will launch on 10 February 2017 at St.George OpenAir Cinema, situated on Mrs Macquaries Point against a backdrop spanning the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Sydney city skyline.
The Mountainfilm World Tour will then reach 15 locations across Australia and New Zealand throughout February-April 2017. The experience of the Telluride Mountainfilm will leave you buzzing with excitement, energy and anticipation.
Tickets are on sale now or for the one-off launch event via St.George OpenAir, click here!
She Went Wild is working with Aspire Outdoor to explore the possibility of putting on a dedicated female focused cut of Mountainfilm following completion of this year’s tour.
The winner will be supplied with tickets to the screenings at Randwick Ritz or Cremorne Orpheum in Sydney or otherwise to your nearest screening.
Please feel free to share this with your friends and I look forward to seeing you at a screening of Mountainfilm on Tour!

I haven’t always been a mountain biker, so I totally understand if you are thinking, “I don’t love mountain biking. What’s she on about?” I used to be a runner and it wasn’t until continuous shin splints forced me into the sport… Yes, FORCED ME! I was so not into it when I started but, now it is my life, my passion and my everything. Here’s why it can be yours too....
We don't think that Mum's should be celebrated on just on one day of the year, but we know that you'd like to do something special If you're mum, girlfriend or wife has a love for the outdoors, we can assure you that she won't be disappointed with anything on this wish list.
Most of you reading this would be quite inclined to discovering new things, but it is probably fair to say that a lot of us are probably guilty of one thing: forgetting to look in our own backyards. Because those things will always be there, because we get caught up in our daily lives, because we prioritise things that are less accessible, we often don’t end up making the most of what is readily available to us. We also tend to take them for granted and forget how exciting they actually are because we see things everyday.
Meet Fredrika Ek, 24 from Sweden, who 2 years ago started The Bike Ramble, which is a bike trip. A very long one. A bike trip around the world to be exact. In the early spring of 2015 Fredrika strapped everything she owned onto her bicycle, kissed family and friends goodbye and took her first wobbly pedal strokes into the unknown. Why?
At 30 years of age I’d never hiked a single trail. Sure, I’d walked through the bush and spent a lot of time outdoors as a kid, but I’d never set out to immerse myself in the landscape. I couldn’t read a compass, I’d never owned a pair of hiking boots and to my knowledge a Camelbak was the top of a large smelly desert animal.
Growing up, I never had the inclination to discover anything beyond my fence line. The extent of my exposure to the great outdoors was the odd grade 0 bush walk with my family and to be honest, I didn't like it all that much. So how did I find myself here then, my life consumed by rock climbing, mountains and exploring distant lands?
I have always loved the challenge of camping and riding my bike alone. While it can be difficult at times, I find that it usually opens up opportunities that might not have appeared if I was riding with a friend or in a group. I get asked so often about what it’s like to bike tour alone that I decided to examine the pros and cons in this handy list!
Women put so much pressure on themselves to be the best friend, best mum, best wife, best worker, the best at everything for other people, but where in all of that are you the best for YOU?
