We always love giving back to the local climbing community at the Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest when we can! This year, Outdoor Research wanted to do the same! Thus, we are excited to announce they will be selling limited edition Outdoor Research t-shirts during the Ice Fest to help raise money for the local Mountain Rescue Service (aka “MRS”)!
What is MRS? The Mountain Rescue Service provides specialized technical teams comprised of world-class guides and climbers who volunteer their time and expertise in the service of hikers and climbers who need assistance, in and around the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The team is ‘on call’ 24 hours per day, all seasons, with volunteers being mobilized for a full range of incidents: complicated multi-day and nighttime searches in the depth of winter throughout the White Mountain National Forest; technical rope rescues on the region’s many rock climbing cliffs; swift water rescue assistance; and lift evacuations at area ski resorts.
