Do you wake up thinking……coffee, coffee, coffe….climbing, climbing, climbing?

Well, so do we and the awesome folks at Frontside Grind and the American Alpine Club get that too!  The Frontside Grind (FSG) will back at the Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest for all you folks that love a REALLY good cup o’ joe!  Austin and Laura are the awesome owners of Frontside Grind and they gather beans beans from around the world and roast them to perfection.  In fact they have so much love for the Ice Fest folks that Austin roasts a special blend each year for our event!  This year the Dropline Blend will be at the AAC table.  But really, Frontside Grind’s coffee is incredible and roasted by such good folks.  We are so excited they’re joining the 2012 MWV Ice Fest again.  Don’t forget FSG is conveniently located right across the street from us in the Eastern Slope Inn where you can also grab a breakfast sandwich, baked goods, juice, yogurt, or even Kombucha! 

Each morning of the Ice Fest you can grab a cup Frontside Grind Dropline Blend at the American Alpine Club’s table.  Swing by, say hi, and educate yourself on why the American Alpine Club rocks and all the benefits you get as a climber when you have a membership!  They’ll also fill you in on the Live To Dream Grant that we’ll be fundraising for throughout Saturday evenings festivities with a silent auction at the Cranmore Climbing Wall.  Get ready to SCORE some deals on gear kids!  Also, we want to note that you should tune yourself into the American Alpine Club’s 2012 Annual Benefit Dinner Weekend that is being held right in Boston the first weekend in March!  It is a huge honor to have it being held here on the east coast, and it a benefit dinner to support the American Alpine Club and it’s programs that are in place to support climbers and the climbing community!
