  • Mountain Chalet will donate the funds raised when you purchase your selection of film program(s) through the link provided here.
  • Rocky Mountain Field Institute is the beneficiary of your support and generosity.

What's new?

  • The tour is VIRTUAL this year!

  • You’ll be able to purchase these online film programs thru a special Mountain Chalet link (provided below) with many ways to watch. 


How to purchase and watch

First, a definition: A program is a selection of films (between 3 and 10 films), just like a nite at our live events.  These film programs were put together by the Banff World Tour.

The Individual Programs are Amber,  Oynx, Ruby and Sapphire.

The Bundled Programs are Amber/Oynx and Ruby/Sapphire.

The EPIC Bundle includes all four individual programs:  Amber and Oynx and Ruby and Sapphire. 

A film program is about 2 hours long.  You can watch the films as often as you would like within a certain number of days.

Individual Programs

The price for individual programs is $15. After you purchase a film program thru Mountain Chalet's affiliate link (below), you have 3 days from the moment you first hit PLAY to watch the films in that program (as many times as you like). 

Bundled Programs

The price for a bundled program is $28.  After you purchase a bundled program, you will have 14 days from the moment you first hit PLAY to watch those films in those programs as many times as you like.


The price for the EPIC BUNDLE is $52.  After you purchase the Epic Bundle, you will have 14 days from the moment you first hit PLAY to watch those films in those programs as many times as you would like.



In addition to the current year programs, each month Banff offers a program of 3 prior year AWARD WINNING films for a period of 10-days for $15.  During this time period, the 3 selected films may be watched as often as you would like.

February's online rental films are available February 26 - March 7.  Featured this month are:
