Beyond Begbie is a short film that explores the history of the land and its shared significance to Indigenous groups and mountain sports enthusiasts.

Standing tall over the Revelstoke valley, Mount Begbie has inspired an entire community. It is iconicized in the logos and names of local businesses, featured heavily in artists’ works, is photographed by every visiting tourist, and most importantly of all, is explored by the outdoor enthusiast – no matter the season.

Climbing Mount Begbie is a “right of passage” for every hiker, climber, sledder, and skier who chooses to make Revelstoke their home.

While this peak has created an entire contemporary culture in Revelstoke, its name and story only represent colonial history, with no reference to the Indigenous heritage of this land.

Is it the outdoor community’s responsibility to help change this?

Zoya Lynch

Zoya Lynch is a filmmaker and photographer based in beautiful Revelstoke BC, with respect and acknowledgement that it is the traditional unceded territory of the Sinixt, Sylix, Ktunaxa and Secwépemc Nations. She has earned recognition for her work working with commercial brands, major publications in the action sports industry and most recently directing and editing short documentary films. Her camera has led me on assignments to remote mountain ranges across several continents. Working through a view-finder as a photographer and filmmaker has allowed Zoya to translate her deep reverence for the natural world through a tapestry of light-filled moments. She is constantly seeking to combine the wilderness and stories of human connection, achievement and wonder. Zoya is a former member of the Canadian Ski Jumping Team and was an active lobbyist in the fight to include women’s ski jumping into the 2014 Olympic Games. Zoya continues to work collaboratively with women in the outdoors and she is dedicated to carving out a space within the industry to share their stories, perspectives and achievements. Zoya's previous film works include Kindred and Motherload.
