MOUNTAINS. COMMUNITY. INSPIRATION. CHALLENGE.
That's what the Portland Alpine Fest is all about. It's a time for our community to join together to celebrate achievements, to be inspired by others, to learn new skills, and to push our own limits.
PAF18 includes clinics, seminars, movies, speakers, the Portland Ice Comp, and The Summit. Get all the details and ticket information at portlandalpinefest.org.
ARE YOU READY?
Then join us for 6 days of inspiration, learning, demos, and more as you immerse yourself in the world of all things alpine. There's ice climbing, rock climbing, mountain running, and much more.
You'll get the opportunity to hear from and learn from some of our local Pacific Northwest athletes, as well as athletes making waves on the national and international scene.
The Summit, Friday Nov. 16 at the Melody Center
The Summit is the night where our mountain community comes together to celebrate everything we love about the outdoors. Don your finest non-climbing gear, and head on out to the newly remodeled Melody Center, for an evening with your friends for fun, food, and tales of inspiration and adventure.
Our night will feature stories of courage in the face of adversity, first ascents, pushing boundaries, and more as we hear from our two keynote speakers of the evening. Hear from Quinn Brett & Libby Sauter on what it means to be inspired, and Alan Rousseau on what the life of a mountain guide is really like.
There will be a bucketed raffle, where you get to choose the items you hope to take home with you! Raffle items will include hard goods such as ice axes, trekking poles, stoves, along with soft goods such as jackets, boots, packs, and base layers. We'll also bring back the popular Golden Ticket raffle that was launched last year, that features BIG prizes and a limited number of entries.
Celebrating 200 years!
