What to expect from an 'Alpkit Night In'

Every year, as the nights get darker and the temperature drops, we invite you to join us for a series of Winter Webinars. We gather together to find inspiration, share stories and tips, and get you psyched to head out and Win Winter.

We'll be joined by Alpkiteers, Sonder riders and special guests for chats, Q&As and tales of adventure. Read on for details of this year's lineup and links to sign up.
