Packed with workshops and seminars, the third Arc´teryx Alpine Academy takes place at the Aguille du Midi in Chamonix. The professional mountain guides from ‘Compagnie du Mont-Blanc’ and British Mountain Guides (BMG) alongside Arc’teryx athletes will lead workshops that are geared to the needs of those who are new to alpinism, and for those who want to improve their skills and share in the alpine experience. The clinics offer a wide range from high altitude mountaineering, ice climbing to crevasse rescue, navigation, the Hillebergbivy night and much more.
In addition to the clinics, the seminar night on Friday provides in-depth information covering medical topics, equipment know-how, tour planning and more. On Saturday night, leading athletes from the alpine world will present their latest films at the Alpine Movie Night.
Naturally, participants will also have the chance to test the latest gear from the brands involved.
The Arc’teryx Alpine Arcademy is organized by Arc’teryx together with the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc, Hilleberg, GORE-TEX®, Petzl, Suunto, and SCARPA.
Additional information on the event program, registration to the workshops will be available online from March 17 onwards. A prize draw for a two-person trip to the Alpine Arc’ademy, and gear from the sponsor-brands starts Febuary 17th.
