    We love local food! Pair that with the ability to just add water in the backcountry AND understand all the ingredients on the label and we are IN! Check out Good To-Go Food on the blog today!

    So much gear, so little time! Some beta from the Outdoor Researchathletes on what gear rocks and what they always have in their packs for their winter ice climbing adventures. Check it and make sure nothing is missing from your kit. Nothing is better than when you're warm and you've got the gear that works!
    Gear beta is on the blog: http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/

    Black Diamond is back! And they are bringing with them HEAPS of gear for you to try out! We love this company not only because of the awesome gear they make, but also because of their continued support for the climbing and skiing communities. Protecting public lands, advocating for avalanche awareness, and supporting climbing grants is just part of what they do for us all. Supporting the MWV Ice Fest is just another example of BD throwing down for our community! Read more about Black Diamond on our blog - http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/.

    We LOVE the Harvard Cabin and really hope you all take an opportunity to utilize all it has to offer! Located below Huntington Ravine on the east side of Mount Washington, it provides climbers, skiers and mountaineers a place to stay for the night on a first come, first serve basis. Fees: $15 a night to stay in the cabin; which includes full kitchen amenities, dishware, and cutlery.

    Read up on the blog for more beta: http://www.mwv-icefest.com/2017/01/20/harvard-cabin/

    Check out our good friends at Frontside Coffee Roasters and Flatbread Company while you're in town for Ice Fest. Frontside is just down the street and has the best coffee in town. Flatbread is right across the way in Eastern Slope Inn and is the perfect place to cozy up for a pint and some organic goodness.

    BEER! Yes, you can already start thinking about beer this early in the morning. Our friends at Tuckerman Brewing Company are providing you all with some of the newest (and tastiest) brews this year at both the apres hour and at the evening events. In addition to the infamous Pale Ale, you can also sample the Rockpile IPA, the Zealand Session IPA and the Fall Line. Miir Pint Cups are $5 (proceeds go to Mountain Rescue Service). Buy a cup (or bring your own) and fill 'er up while the beer is flowing! Thank you so much Tuckerman Brewing Company! You make MWV Ice Fest SO MUCH BETTER.

    ATTENTION BEER GEEKS- Facts and figures on each brew on our blog: http://www.mwv-icefest.com/20…/…/23/tuckermanbrewingcompany/

    You might not look as good as this guy does, but you will definitely be styling when you are wearing any pair of Julbo shades! The MWV Ice Fest and Julbo USA are old friends with a deep connection, but all biases aside, their shades are the best under the sun! Be sure to try some out before your clinic! Check out the blog for details on a couple of their most beloved styles - http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/.

    Two of our favorite people are back to guide at MWV Ice Fest this year! Janet and Freddie Wilkinson are some of the most fun and experienced people to climb in the mountains with. We are beyond psyched to have their talent and knowledge at our festival and you should be too!

    Check out what they both have been up to on our blog (hint: she's small, very cute, and really cuddly): http://www.mwv-icefest.com/…/freddie-janet-wilkinson-are-b…/

    Why beat up your own gear, when you could test out, try and beat up this gear?! This is one of the coolest parts about the MWV Ice Fest. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY! And Sterling Climb will be there for you to check out and talk to them about what the best ropes they offer for the type of climbing you're most psyched about!
    Here is the demo beta: http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/
