2018 MWV ICE FEST PRESENTERS

Mixtress was produced and directed by one of mixed climbing’s true hardwomen, Dawn Glanc, the movie follows the evolution of mixed climbing and the women who have left their mark on the sport over the last 20 years. Get ready to be inspired by steep lines, big sends, and a group of badass women! Check out the movie’s trailer!
FEATURED PRESENTER: JESSE HUEY
Thank you CAMP & CASSIN for bringing Jesse out to give a killer show on Friday!
His show will focus on “my journey and experience from a lifetime of climbing ice and being in the alpine. That narrative follows a journey that started in the Canmore region where I climbed extensively before a very successful trip to Alaska. In 2010 I climbed the Slovak Direct on the South Face of Denali which put me on a path that I didn’t really see coming. I was then injured terribly in China and faced with a horrendous decision in Pakistan in 2013. Since then I have been climbing things that have called more to my soul, rather than to the notoriety that often accompanies an epic ascent. This presentation will be an honest conversation about this experience; the highs, the lows, and the loss of really really amazing people along the way.”

FEATURED PRESENTER: RAPHAEL SLAWINSKI
We’re so psyched that Arc’teryx is sending Raphael all the way from Calgary to North Conway!
Raphael’s presentation is a bit of a retrospective – “both a personal one, and one of ice and mixed climbing more generally. It’s sobering to realize I’m old enough and have been climbing long enough to have seen the discipline evolve, sometime almost out of all recognition. I will talk about my first steps in the 90s, how they coincided with a revolution in what could be done with ice tools, and how that revolution moved to the mountains in the 2000s. It’s about my personal journey and how it mirrored (and sometime in a small way contributed to) larger currents.”
