American Alpine Club Craggin’ Classics – National Title Sponsor
The American Alpine Club + the Access Fund = the best resources climbers have in North American for ensuring the future for our passions. As avid supporters of the AAC and the benefits they deliver to climbers (lodging, insurance, journal, library, etc), we go so far as to purchase memberships for all of our athletes and employees and we have stepped up as National Title Sponsor for the annual Craggin’ Classic series. We hope to see you there!
COSMIC Ski Mountaineering Race Series – Sponsor, Demos
Competitive ski mountaineering draws some of the coolest athletes we have ever had the good fortune to meet. CAMP is it when it comes to lightweight gear for randonee racing in Europe. COSMIC has been the main driver behind the development of the sport here in the US and we have been there with them since the beginning. Literally, CAMP was the first sponsor to cut a check for the series in its first year. In addition to supporting the series, we show up at nearly every race and demo gear so racers can trim their rigs and push even harder!
This event fell off the grid for a few years and it was the push of a few dedicated folks and support from companies like CAMP that got one of the most well-attended ski mountaineering races back on its feet. As other companies continue to focus more and more on side country, we have pushed further into the backcountry and delved ever deeper into the incredible world of ski mountaineering. In its re-entry year of 2012, CAMP went so far as to post the cash for the top prizes. Why? We want to see some real competition!
Elk Mountain Grand Traverse
The Elk Mountain Grand Traverse is the North American standard for high-country point-to-point motoring on skis and we love seeing what people are capable with each new year. Our very own athlete Bryan Wickenhauser holds the course record. We need to see this record get broken!
Bozeman Ice Festival
We support ice festivals because we love ice climbing! We love the environment, the quirky people and the adrenaline that only ice climbing can bring. We have made a strong name for the Cassin brand not only with the best tools on the planet, but also through our diehard presence at gatherings across the country. The Bozeman Fest has been a particularly good match with the new North American Championships comp and the rowdy post-climbing line up where we get to rage! Oh, and did we mention that we bring a huge demo fleet …
Keene Valley Mountain Fest
The Adirondacks are the backyard for one of our favorite athletes, Ian Osteyee. Not only is he a bad ass local climber, he is actually behind some of the recent innovations with the highly technical line of Cassin gear. This a guy you need to meet and the Adirondacks is full of ice you need to climb! Oh, and did we mention that we bring a huge demo fleet …
