2012 Michigan Ice Fest is Coming!

Posted on: November 28th, 2011 by Great Lakes Section

Why does anyone go to the Michigan Ice Festival? The climbing for sure, but it’s also to be inspired by the amazing slide shows, it’s to learn and develop skills, but it’s also to reconnect with friends and fellow climbers from around the Midwest!  Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is an ideal setting for classes, burly climbing sessions, and skills-practice and offers a perfect starting point for
unforgettable climbs.

While the climbing at the annual festival is fantastic, climbers travel from all corners of the country to be inspired by the amazing slide shows, to learn and develop skills from the likes of  Vince Anderson, Barry Blanchard, Roger Strong, and Mark Wilford. Not only will these amazing climbers be the instructors for our courses they will also entertain us with evening presentations.

The Great Lakes Section of the American Alpine Club will also have a booth at the festival headquarters and will do a membership drive and raffle! This will be a perfect time to renew your membership!  Please
stop by and say hello!
