We’re psyched to announce that Matt McCormick will be joining the roster of guest guides for Ice Fest again this year! He comes to us from Vermont but is well known all over New England as one of the Northeast’s best ice and mixed climbers.

Matt McCormick is a La Sportiva Athlete and a sales rep for Petzl and Julbo. In addition to knowing all about the gear side of things, Matt also has a degree in physical education so, if you are lucky enough to having him as a guide, he can advise you on exactly what it takes from the tools to the training to improve your performance on the ice.Matt_Sporiva
