Successful Ascend Splitfest 2015
We're eager to support our regional splitboard festivals to help grow the community, so we were delighted to get this update from Lukas after another successful Ascend Splitfest in Jasper recently...
"On behalf of the Ascend team I would like to thank G3 Genuine Guide Gear for supporting this year's Ascend Splitfest in Jasper National Park. The festival was a great success. The feedback from the participants was very positive, especially on the fact that the festival was guided by ACMG guides, which gave people a chance to learn more about safety in the backcountry. Everyone was stoked and already signing up for next year's event.
On Saturday evening we held two presentations by Parks Canada and local ACMG guides on different topics from avalanche safety, mountaineering and local touring. Following these presentations, we organized a raffle to fundraise money for Avalanche Canada and managed to raise $2,500, which is more than double compare to last year!" - Lukas
