    Julbo Eyewear is back! We're throwing it retro here with the images since this company has been around for over a century. With the first Chamonix crystal hunters in need of eye protection to the first glacier sunglasses in 1950, this company is still pushing the technology and boundaries. This year they are bringing along their newest addition, the Shield sunglasses. You can check them out at their booth at Ice Fest. Huge props to a company that has been outfitting so many athletes for many years. Welcome back Julbo Eyewear! "See" you soon!

    Check out what the Shield sunglasses look like on our blog: http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/

    The incredible roster of guides is still coming in hot folks! Tonight we want to welcome back four more awesome ice climbing guides to the 2018 Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest! Learn more about them and why they keep coming back to good ol' New Hampshire to guide ice. Here is guest guide, Elliot Gaddy's 2 cents! More on the Ice Fest Blog!
    MWV ICE FEST: Hey, Elliot. New Hampshire misses ya, but we know Alaska is pretty cool too. We’re so stoked to have ya back this year, what do you dig about guiding in New Hampshire?
    ELLIOT: That’s a tough question to answer concisely, one that probably has a lot more to it than simple logistics. Guiding in AK lets me know a lot about what I like about guiding in NH. I really like the access to high quality routes. Drinking coffee at Frontside Grind, and than 30 minutes later at the base of Repentance. Hard to beat that. Its also really valuable to have a community of guides who all share information and ideas. Both of those things make NH my absolute favorite place to guide ice.

    Tuckerman Brewing Company is back this year bringing along tons of kegs of free beer for you all to drink at Apres Hour and the evening events. They generously support our climbing community year after year and we are so grateful. In addition to the Pale Ale and Fall Line, they will also be bringing a specialty keg each night of the brewer's choice. Fun! Surprises! Also, like last year, be sure to purchase an awesome BPA-free, clear cup with awesome logos on it at Apres Hour- proceeds will benefit Mountain Rescue Service!
