This year we had approximately fifty athletes -- well known climbers from the magazines -- as well as twenty American Alpine Institute guides. Attendees had the opportunity to participate in climbing clinics, mountain bike tours, climbing competitions, avalanche awareness clinics, first aid courses, mountain photography classes, service projects and a whole lot more.
Oh yeah, and the whole lot more includes things like parties and beer drinking...

Every time I go to this event I'm amazed by New Belgium Brewery and their commitment to outdoor recreation. The two women who put on the beer tasting event told me that they do fifty events a year, nearly all of them at outdoor events.
