Some of the best "high-adrenaline films" in the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival will be shown Oct. 8 in Moab at a benefit for The Friends of the La Sal Avalanche Center.

Since 1993, the all-volunteer organization has helped the U.S. Forest Service pay for and maintain weather stations, computer systems and other equipment that provide winter updates on avalanche conditions in the southeastern Utah mountains.

Tickets to "Radical Reels Night" are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. The event begins at 7 p.m. at Grand County High School.

Petzl America is co-sponsoring the event with Adventure Inn Moab, Canyon Voyages, Eddie McStiff's, Footprints, Love Muffin, Moab Half Marathon, Pagan Mountaineering, Poison Spider Bikes, Moab Times-Independent and Western Spirit Cycling.
