ARC´TERYX ALPINE ACADEMY

ADVANCE YOUR MOUNTAIN SKILLS

The Arc´teryx Alpine Academy is returning to Chamonix this year. From June 29th – July 2nd, the 6th edition of the popular Academy will unite 400 alpine enthusiasts, mountain guides and professional athletes. This one-of-a-kind event aims to create a space where beginners and experts alike can advance their mountain skills through top-notch clinics and share experiences in a unique environment.

The Arc’teryx Alpine Academy Academy offers more than 20 elite clinics, focusing on mountaineering, climbing, rescuing, ski alpinism and, for the first time, mountain trail running. This is the perfect opportunity for participants to learn from world-renowned alpinists. Also new for this year, the ‘Alpine Village’ will be installed downtown, turning the popular Place Balmat and Place du Triangle into buzzing hot spots, open to everyone. A solid daily program will include open-air master classes, movie nights, concerts, athlete demos, climbing walls and many more activities related to alpinism.

The Mountain Clean-Up will kick off the Academy on Thursday, June 29th when participants are welcomed to join pro athletes in giving back to nature by collecting litter in the mountains surrounding Chamonix.

Finally, this year’s Academy extends its playfield to include Les Grand Montets, topping off favourites such as l’Aiguille du Midi, Brévent and La Mer de Glace.

The Arc’teryx Alpine Academy is the ideal place to advance your mountain skills.

ADVANCE YOUR MOUNTAIN SKILLS

Vancouver, BC – Urban agglomeration supports the trend towards bike commuting worldwide. Arc’teryx embraces this development: In the expanded Commuter Line for urban bikers, city cyclists find new offerings for their daily commute. The new light weight A2B Commuter Hardshell Jacket offers urban looks in a waterproof 3-Layer Gore-Tex® package – one of the highlights from the new spring/summer 2015 line.

A technical product in urban packaging: The A2B Commuter Hardshell Jacket (400 € / 600 CHF) offers the look of a sportswear jacket and the performance of a waterproof hardshell. Offered in three colours for men and women, this 3-layer Gore-Tex Jacket has an easy-to-store hood that is designed to be worn under the helmet and allows for a full range of motion and view.

The drop hem protects from the elements in modest weather. For night and rainy rides, an additional flap with reflecting prints offers even more coverage and safety. Also the reflecting elements on the cuffs can be folded away if not needed.

In addition to the well-loved A2B Commuter Pant, a new A2B Commuter Chino (100 € /150 CHF) will be added to the collection. For women, there is also a cropped version. Manufactured from robust, elastic cotton-blend Herringbone, those pants have a discreet, classic urban look and show their bike-ability only with turned-up legs: the reflecting print is on the inside of the pant’s lower legs.
