In 1972 Mike Stein and five fellow adventurers filmed their journey on the Liard River, which flows 1115 km through parts of the Yukon, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. Their trip focused on the Grand Canyon, a 30 km stretch of the Liard containing numerous class IV and higher rapids. For decades the resulting 16mm film was thought lost, but recently Mike not only found a copy but had it digitized.
Thursday, January 17 Mike Stein will be at the Whistler Museum for the first screening of Highways of the Past and to discuss his own experiences before, during and after the journey.
Tickets are on sale at the Whistler Museum. $10 or $5 for Museum or Club Shred members.
Doors open at 6:30 pm; the talk and film begin at 7 pm.
