/ Chamonix Mountain Festival: 1st - 8th June 2013 anyone going?
This sounds like a great idea anyone thinking of going?
430 Euro's for 7 days accommodation, food and lift pass sounds like a good deal. Especially when you consider its 50 Euro's for a return trip up the Aiguille du Midi!
But...it will be incredibly busy I bet.
I just had dinner with Francoise who is organising this and they're pretty keen about it all. There'll be gear demos etc and buses to move people around to better weather etc. Could be good for someone's first time, or someone without a partner.
Plus stuff to get inspired from:
Pre launch of a film on the Drus with Andy Parkin and Steve House
Mazeno ridge team will also give a talk (see Piolets d'or)
We could run a seminar: how to climb with babies!
Or 100 ways to convince your mum or mother in law to babysit while you both go climbing!
