Into its second year we are excited to be getting involved at this stage with something aimed at encouraging and supporting a true spirit of adventure.With an exciting year in the pipeline for Alpkit, we are really looking forward to seeing how we can build this relationship going forward as it fits perfectly with our product range.
This years winner of The Adventure Fund came from ski mountaineer Ian Bolliger, who's expedition will be looking at new routes and descents in the remote Revelations Range, Alaska. After establishing a basecamp they will head out exploring new routes and establishing first descents on a variety of slopes amongst the spires in this beautiful mountain range. The expedition will head out to Alaska on the 11th of June and we'll be sure to bring back reports as soon as possible. It will also be featured in upcoming Sidetracked items.For a summary of the pick of this years entries, check it out over in the Sidetracked News.
