The 16th Annual Mount Washington Ice Festival just wanted to say thank you to all the sponsors, all the reps that came, participants, guest guides, IMCS guides, and all the volunteers. A few specific thank you’s include Tuckerman’s Brewery, the athletes in the climbers “Face-Off”, Kevin Mahoney, Cranmore Mountain Ski Resort, Black Mountain Ski Resort, Mammut, The AAC, Ice Holdz, The Good Loaf, NEice.com Soup Kitchen and everyone that came for the festivities! We had such a blast this year and we’re already looking forward to planning next years Ice Fest. Have a great rest of your winter, and make sure you check into IME or IMCS if you need any gear or have any climbing questions. Spread the word to others and we’ll can’t wait to see y’all in 2010!
