Hans Gmoser Film Project

Hans Gmoser was one of the greatest mountain filmmakers in North America. During the 1950s and 60s he produced 10 feature length films of ski touring, rock climbing and mountaineering adventures, capturing the alpine magic of the era. Through the Hans Gmoser Film Project it is possible to view these historic films, complete with classical music soundtrack and narration.

The Hans Gmoser Film Collection, 10 DVD set is available for purchase through the Whyte Museum Shop. Watch our Events page for public showings of the films throughout the year at the Whyte Museum and other venues.

Thank you to the late Hans Gmoser for creating the original films. Thank you to Marg Saul, Chic Scott, Will Schmidt and multiple donors for making the project possible.
