Need Something To Do Friday?


Winter sports enthusiasts are anything but halfhearted. The car rack is mounted, the spandex is on and the goggles are polished. They have the next 12 weekends planned when you don't even know what you're having for dinner tonight.

If you're one of those with snow on the brain, or just enjoy watching extreme sports, the Backcountry Film Festival is for you. Featuring 10 films from various snow-covered parts of the earth, brought to you by professional directors as well as amateur adventure filmmakers, these flicks will get you in the zone to helicopter drop onto a mountain (also, bolster that life insurance policy). 

7 p.m. $10. Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., Boise, 208-345-0454,
