Zoya Lynch and Nat Segal are proud to present the trailer for a short film that explores the history of the land and its shared significance to Indigenous groups and mountain sports enthusiasts, Beyond Begbie.
Standing tall over the Revelstoke, British Columbia valley, Mount Begbie has inspired an entire community. It is iconized in the logos and names of local businesses, featured heavily in artists’ works, photographed by every visiting tourist, and most importantly of all, is explored by outdoor enthusiasts—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?
