Arc'teryx invites you to embrace the history and the future of mountaineering during three days of Alpine experiences from June 8th to 10th 2012, intended to educate and inspire anyone with an interest in the mountains.
The Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix is the alpine base Arc'teryx has chosen to host an educational weekend for those interested in becoming more familiar with mountain sports, as well as those interested in honing their skills and shared passion.
A gathering of professionals and outdoor industry hosts will lead participants through a weekend of Alpine exploration: the gear, the activities, the environment, the highs and lows involved in all things Alpine.
Attendees can test and learn more about the latest in Alpine equipment, improve their Alpine skills, learn about the challenges of the human body in the altitude as well as how climate change affects our glaciers and mountain regions.
There will also be time to share stories and experiences at the spectacular Alpine Movie Night.
Experienced mountain guides as well as Arc'teryx athletes including Ines Papert, Nina Caprez, Alex Chabot, Luka Lindic and many more will be on stand-by to provide participants with advice and assistance, the aim being to raise awareness about personal responsibility and self-sufficiency in the mountains.
The Alpine ARC'ademy is presented by Arc'teryx in cooperation with the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc, Gore-Tex, Suunto, Petzl, Primus and Scarpa.
For more information on the individual venues, workshop registration and to win a mountain day with Nina Caprez at the Alpine ARC'ademy please visit us at: www.alpinearcademy.com (online from April 23rd onwards) or on Facebook under Alpine ARC'ademy. #AlpineArcademy
