I just wanted to send a quick shout-out to all the ultra-supportive Ice Fest sponsors. We couldn’t run this event without their help and we’re stoked to showcase all of their ingenious products during our climbing clinics and gear demo.

I’d like to highlight a few people from our 2009 headlining companies: Ian Conner from Mammut, Jason Stadler from Asolo and Lowe Alpine, and Lara Kramer from Outdoor Research. The enthusiasm these folks have for the festival and our ice climbing community makes this whole crazy event-coordinating job totally worthwhile. Thanks for your energy, guys!

We’re already starting to take reservations for our Ice Fest courses. Give us a call in the IMCS office to hear about the clinics we’re offering and to get your name on the list! (603-356-7064)
