Get Prepared

Much of the event will take place in high altitude areas around Mont-Blanc, so we recommend an early arrival to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (at least one day prior to the start) to make sure your body gets used to the altitude.

Be sure to also read through the clinic descriptions and the specific equipment requirements listed there. Please bring whatever gear you own that is relevant to the course and that you normally use. There will be some demo gear available to test, but we cannot guarantee sufficient availability.

Due to weather and local conditions all schedules are subject to change. If conditions don’t allow the clinic you have signed up for, we will work out an alternative plan with the guides.
