Mountainfest in the Adirondacks, Jan. 13–15

Posted on: January 9th, 2012 by Northeast Region

It’s time for MOUNTAINFEST! The AAC will be there and we’ll be serving piping hot coffee all weekend, so please come by and say hi.

The 16th annual Adirondack International Mountainfest will take place January 13-15, 2012.

For more info and to sign up for clinics, check out the MOUNTAINEER.

Mountainfest is an annual celebration of ice climbing and mountaineering, featuring guest athletes who entertain us with tales of climbing adventures, instructional clinics taught by visiting climbers and local guides, demo gear, and a chance to gather with the climbing community for an exciting winter weekend.

Mountainfest 2012 boasts an excellent lineup of speakers, including Zoe Hart, Bayard Russell and Matt McCormick, and Emilie Drinkwater. Their slide shows on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings promise to be entertaining and also offer a chance to win raffle gear and free giveaways.

We’re offering more clinics than ever this year, including tons of ice climbing courses, snow and alpine climbing, snowshoe mountaineering, avalanche safety, and wilderness first aid. Many of the event sponsors will be here with the latest gear for you to take and climb with on both Saturday and Sunday.

Whether you come for the clinics or just climb on your own and check out the evening entertainment, Mountainfest is the place to be on Martin Luther King weekend.
