The latest from the Ice Fest Crew
We are proud to announce the headlining sponsors for 2008: Asolo, Lowe Alpine, and Mammut! Thanks to the generous support of these companies, the 2008 Ice Fest is shaping up to be the best yet! Be sure to check out these companies’ booths at the gear demo, upstairs at IME every day of the festival (Feb 7-10). And remember, the gear demo is free and open to the public! Yea!
Our sponsors are getting ready to represent at the Ice Fest! The list of companies that want to be involved this year looks awesome! They’ll have demo gear available for climbers who are visiting for the weekend and for clients who are ready to climb and learn! We are talking boots, crampons, axes, tools, helmets, and clothing. Demo’s will be available throughout the festival!
Author, climber, and guide Majka Burhardt is coming to Ice Fest! Majka, an AMGA-certified guide from Colorado Mountain School, will be leading several women’s climbing clinics during the festival and will be opening up one of the slide show evenings. Majka’s presentation, “Ice Again,” will tell her story of returning to ice climbing after a ten year hiatus. Majka is a writer and guide whose column, Whipped, in Climbing Magazine often presents the human (read fallible) side of climbing. She brings that same self-deprecation to her slide shows. Find out what happens when she exports herself straight from height of heat in Cape Town, South Africa to the barrel of winter cold and claws her way back into the frozen world.
