The Radical Reels Tour, now in its ninth year, continues to push boundaries with the best action sports films from the annual Banff Mountain Film Festival.

Experience more than half a dozen wild adrenaline-pumping sports as seen through the eyes of some of today’s top athletes. Join the party for a good cause. Profit from the Asheville event will go to Connect Buncombe. See you there, adventure film lovers! The link above has the trailer to the films – which are always awesome to watch!
