WE’RE BACK! Mark your calendars for the 21st Annual Mountainfest January 13-15, 2017

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 athletes and local guides, demo gear, and of course an opportunity to mingle with the climbing community for an exciting weekend of winter climbing and fun!

Mountainfest 2017 boasts an excellent line-up of speakers including Patagonia athlete Kelly Cordes, Rab athlete Scott Bennett, Black Diamond athlete Kevin Mahoney and Patagonia athlete Kelly Cordes . The slideshows promise to be entertaining and offer a chance to win big with raffle prizes and free swag giveaways! Scott cut his teeth on the Sandstone walls of the Red River Gorge and has since gone on to do first ascents on remote alpine climbs and set speed records on routes like The Naked Edge along with one-day speed ascents of El Capitan. Kevin is a guide, teacher, father and an all-around nice guy! He’s an IFMGA/UIAGM Certified Guide and has his name on first ascents all over the Northeast and as far as the Alaska and Karakorum Ranges. Kelly has spent most of his life avoiding full-time work, mixing up margaritas and sending big alpine routes in areas like Patagonia, Pakistan and Alaska. Originating on the East Coast, now residing in Estes Park, CO, Kelly spends his days outdoors climbing ice, rock , snow and being an Author. Recently, Kelly has been crushing the Top Rope scene in Colorado!

We’re offering clinics ranging from “new to ice climbing” to stepping up your game with steep ice and mixed climbing clinics. There will be opportunities to join clinics on alpine climbing, snowshoe adventures, avalanche awareness, and slide climbing.

Whether you come for the clinics, gear and clothing demos or just to climb on your own make sure to check out the evening  slideshow entertainment, Mountainfest is the place to be January 13-15!
