Following its successful theatrical tour across North America, including its premiere at Banff Mountain Book and Film Festival, Beyond Begbie is now available on Airtime Streaming, with all profits from the initial release week going to the Inchelium Language & Culture Association.

Standing tall over the Revelstoke valley, Mount Begbie has inspired an entire community. It is iconicized in the logos and names of local businesses, featured heavily in artists’ works, and photographed by every visiting tourist. Most importantly of all, it is explored by the outdoor enthusiast—no matter the season.

Climbing Mount Begbie is a “right of passage” for every hiker, climber, sledder and skier who chooses to make Revelstoke their home. While this peak has created an entire contemporary culture in Revelstoke, its name and story only represent colonial history, with no reference to the Indigenous heritage of this land. Is it the outdoor community’s responsibility to help change this?
