The Grand Rescue (A movie night!) Oct. 23
The Alpine Rescue Team will be hosting the screening of the documentary movie, THE GRAND RESCUE on October 23, 2015 at 6:30 pm at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, CO. Proceeds from this event will go towards the “Colorado Mountain Rescue History Center” project. Get your tickets before they run out here.
In 2011, members of the Alpine Rescue Team and the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group traveled to Jackson, Wyoming to assist Swirl Productions in the filming of the documentary about the 1967 rescue on the Grand Teton. Both Alpine Rescue Team and Rocky Mountain Rescue Group supplied 1960’s vintage equipment and assisted as technical advisers in the rigging and use of the historic rescue gear.
Colorado Mountain Rescue History Center
To learn more about the COLORADO MOUNTAIN RESCUE HISTORY CENTER we ask that you visit our website. As of today, 80% of the funding has been committed and pledged by the Alpine Rescue Team, foundations such as the Gates Family Foundation, the Boettcher Foundation, the Colorado Trust, the El Pomar Foundation, numerous Colorado SAR Teams and from private Individuals.
The CMRHC will be home to the history of Mountain Rescue in the State of Colorado. It will house and protect the documents and artifacts collected from around the state from the Mountain Rescue Teams that have provided mountain search and rescue services over the past 60 years. It will also serve as the instrument in which mountain safety education programs will be available to the public.
