Amplify your mountain experience at the Arc’teryx Alpine Academy in Chamonix, from 29th June – 2nd July. Four action-packed days with alpine sessions for every skill level, fitness level and budget.

The stacked program will include over 80 clinics in climbing, trail running, mountaineering, trekking, mountain photography and environmentalism; Four days of education, inspiration and connection with a community of like-minded mountain enthusiasts.

Highlights will include the Climb & Portaledge Night, Reach Your Best Rock Climbing Level, Vallée Blanche Glacier Tour, Trail Running Best of Tour du Mont-Blanc, and Photography in the Vertical Environment. The clinics will be supported by IFMGA mountain guides and world-class athletes such as Will Gadd, Jonathan Siegriest, Johanna Åstrom, Ines Papert, Martin Kern, Max Kroneck, Nina Caprez, Hamish McArthur, Jordan Cannon, and Luka Lindič, and many more. 

Then there’s the Alpine Academy Village, which will hold free activities and experiences for everyone to get involved in, like testing out the latest Arc’teryx gear, upcycling workshops and film premieres. And there’s a bouldering wall to climb with pros on hand.

It wouldn’t be a mountain festival without music, which there’ll be live, daily, at the Alpine Village and into the night.

“The Arc’teryx Alpine Academy is ever evolving and moving forward, and we’re stoked to deliver a refreshed offer of intimate on-mountain clinics,” says Stéphane Tenailleau, Director, EMEA Marketing at Arc’teryx.

“Participants can truly immerse themselves and take skills to new heights in the iconic Mont-Blanc-Massif and Chamonix valley. As always, our clinics will be led by the best mountain guides and top-class athletes and this year, we’ll have even more athletes in attendance. Of course, the evolution doesn’t stop at our clinic offering. We’re developing this into a full-blown mountain culture festival with concerts, world premieres and free activities for everyone. We can’t wait to share more on this in the coming weeks and months.”
