Come join the Arc'teryx store on Newbury Street in Boston for a fun evening with Marc Chauvin, IFMGA mountain guide, former president of the AMGA, and instructor with the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE). Marc will discuss how to travel safely in the backcountry and help you better understand general avalanche hazards and those that are most common here in the Northeast. We’ll also be showcasing the new Voltair avalanche airbag, a new standard in backcountry safety tools.
We are especially excited to introduce some of our favorite partners here in the northeast. Outdoors photographer, Dustin Marshall Photography, will be at the event with a photobooth. The American Alpine Club will be at the event to spread the good word about their organization and the perks of a membership with it. Camp, Cassin, Julbo, and Fischer will all be repping their offerings at a table and giving away swag. Otter Creek Brewing will be pouring FREE drinks for those with a valid ID. Hinterlands, a guiding and outdoor instruction booking site, will be giving away a FREE AIARE I course and a discount on courses to every attendee on the night of the event.
We can't wait to see you there.
