Climbers, skiers and all mountain enthusiasts are invited to the Chamonix Mountain Festival. This gathering is organised by mountaineers for mountaineers. Everybody will be welcome in this truly international meet. Whether you come on your own, with a group or with a partner, whether you have done Alpine climbing before or not, you will have a chance to enjoy some stunning Alpine classics or ski touring routes.
Arc'teryx, DMM, Blue Ice, Idris Skis, Valandre and other top-of-the-range brands will be providing equipment to test and the days out will be complemented by an exciting line up of talks and screenings.
The new award-winning feature documentary film Petit Dru - The Disintegrating Mountain, will be screened, with Andy Parkin as guest. A lecture will be given on the 1st ascent of the Mazeno Ridge of Nanga Parbat by the 2013 Piolets d'Or awarded Sandy Allan.
With accommodation in a beautiful historic building in the very centre of Chamonix, great French food, a mini information centre providing assistance on conditions and route choice and, most importantly, fellow mountaineers from all over the world, you can already start preparing a list of your dream ascents.
