Chamonix Mountain Festival invites all climbers and mountain enthusiasts to join in a week of climbing, ski touring and mountaineering fun. Chamonix for only €60 a day with room, board, events and lift pass all included!
The unique gathering, organised by mountaineers for mountaineers, will take place 1st-8th June in the iconic Chamonix Mont-Blanc. The world's capital of alpinism, where it all started in the 19th century with the first British pioneers and their French and Swiss guides, will for one full week open its arms to climbers and alpinists of all levels and ages. Everybody will be welcome in this truly international meet. Whether you come on your own, with a group or with a partner, whether you have done Alpine climbing before or not, you will have a chance to enjoy some stunning Alpine classics or ski touring routes.
Arcteryx, Idris Skis and other top-of-the-range brands will be providing equipment to test and the days out will be complemented by an exciting line up of talks and screenings. We will not reveal too much yet but you can already look forward to the new award-winning feature documentary 'Petit Dru - The Disintegrating Mountain'. And we can give away that Andy Parkin, together with other surprise guests, will be there too...
