Arc'teryx announce Alpine training weekend

Arc’teryx have announced details of their Alpine ARC’ademy, based in Chamonix and running the weekend of June 8-10. The Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix is the base chosen to host an educational weekend for those interested in becoming more familiar with mountain sports, as well as those interested in honing their existing skills.

Attendees can test and learn more about the latest in alpine equipment, improve their alpine skills, learn about the challenges of the human body in the altitude as well as how climate change affects our glaciers and mountain regions. There will also be time to share stories and experiences at the spectacular Alpine Movie Night.  Experienced mountain guides as well as Arc’teryx athletes including Ines Papert, Nina Caprez, Luka Lindic and many more will be on stand-by to provide participants with advice and assistance, the aim being to raise awareness about personal responsibility and self-sufficiency in the mountains.

We think the clinics offer terrific value for money at just 35 Euros for most clinics (apart from Alpine Climbing Grade II to III and Grade III to IV which cost €80). So whether it’s glacier travel and crevasse rescue you want to learn about, or learning what you need to climb independently, or just soak in the atmosphere of the home of alpinism, then this looks a great weekend to make it to.
