Alpine Arc'ademy Movie Night
What compels someone to climb a mountain? Which highs and lows does an athlete go through when climbing a difficult project? Find out the emotional and athletic side of mountain sports during the Alpine Arc’ademy Movie Night.
The Alpine Arc’ademy is an annual educational weekend of mountaineering workshops and culture for people of all skill levels, that we host in Chamonix, France. A unique event in many ways, the Arc’ademy offers an excellent opportunity to test the latest equipment and advance your skills under the competent guidance of celebrated alpine athletes and guides.
These climbing experts will also be sharing their experiences and showing their videos at the movie night. For example, Canadian Arc’athlete Will Gadd will be showing his breathtaking “Hunlen Falls” film about his climb of a 300-meter ice fall near Turner Lake. As Will says, “Alpine climbing gives people a sense of the mountains, themselves, and most of all, celebrates our freedom to get out into the mountains at whatever level suits us. Alpine climbing to me is freedom”.
Swiss climber Nina Caprez is a highly respected athlete who, among other accomplishments, made the first female ascent of the legendary Silbergeier Route in the Swiss Rätikon. Her film about the climb will also be shown during the movie night, and Nina looks forward to being at the event to meet new climbing enthusiasts and sign posters.
This is just a small sample of the great selection of films that we have lined up for the Alpine Arc’ademy Movie Night –a free event, open to all attendees. If you’re anywhere near Chamonix on June 15th, we’d love it if you could join us.
