Hello MWV Ice Fest fam!
What a weird year, eh? To say things here in the planning department have been in flux would be an understatement.
As a climbing school we've always been proud of bringing together talented guides from as far and wide as we can pull from, and then watching them play with the storied ice crags and alpine adventures to be had in New England. We love the instructional aspect of the festival. Nervous newcomers to the sport coming back with camera rolls full of frozen eyelashes, snotsicles, and goofy-ass grins makes our day. We can tell when someone is hooked. We remember! Heck, we still feel that some days. We want more of that, and for more people.
This is not the year for more people. Large gatherings are unsafe, traveling complicated- at best. Usership of outdoor spaces in NH is through the roof and resources are strained.
Do we climb "because it's there", or for a higher reason- however you define that? We believe in climbing as a salve for the soul, and we believe engagement fosters community and we hope that leads to stewardship. To that end we hope to still be able to run clinics this winter: if allowed and/or recommended by medical and public safety experts. We are working diligently in the meantime during this forced pause to improve festival logistics and create new initiatives that foster diversity and inclusion into our festival. We will, tentatively, open appropriately-limited registration January 1, 2021.
In the meantime, we would love to hear from our MWV Ice Fest fam- help share some stoke! Let's share the love of climbing. We'd love to see NH climbing photos from previous years, how you're training/staying sane and safe at home, and local outdoor inspiration you've found. Email [email protected]
Please stay safe and sane and hopefully stoked,
The MWV Ice Fest Team ... See MoreSee Less
