Ace Kvale

Ace Kvale is a Minnesota native who landed in Telluride in 1975. Seeking ever-bigger mountains and challenges, he roamed the world for the next four decades, eking out a living as an adventure photographer before becoming a dedicated desert rat. Kvale has been a friend of Mountainfilm since its humble origins, participating in many films and gallery shows throughout the years. Although he now lives in a small town in the desert southwest, he still calls Telluride home to friendships that last a lifetime. He is the subject of the short film Ace and the Desert Dog (Mountainfilm 2016), and his art has been exhibited several times at the festival.
