Presentation by Jeff and Priti Wright

Jeff_Priti_Wright

Priti and Jeff Wright have spent years climbing in the Cascades and around the world while balancing the constraints of their supremely adequate and marginally tolerable careers. Inadequate training, 'weakened' warrior syndrome, and shear exhaustion have caused them to call it quits and take their first Sabbatical together to sharpen their alpine climbing, hone their marriage, and test the limits of how long they can go without showering. We're calling on all climber yuppies (and anyone who's just afraid of financial instability) to come learn about how to plan for a Gap year and get inspired to shake it up...or just come for the pretty alpine pictures!

In Adaptive, Sterling athletes, Jim Ewing and Maureen Beck, attempted the first unassisted adaptive climb of the Lotus Flower Tower in Canada’s Cirque of the Unclimbables.

Himalayan Ice: In December 2018, alpinists Ari Novak and Karsten Delap set out for India to explore one of the most remote valleys in the Indian Himalaya with local climber Karn Kowshik. Their goal was to meet with the indigenous population of the Spiti Valley and try to support local ice climbing. What they found was perhaps the biggest treasure trove of unclimbed ice in all the Himalaya. Presented by La Sportiva.

Skiing the Dream Couloir” by Hilaree Nelson and Jim Morrison presented by the North Face

  • 7:30pm - Emerson Crawford Theater

  • General Seating. Senior and Student Discounts. $15 admission or VIP Pass

National Geographic 2018 Adventurer of the Year and North Face team captain Hilaree Nelson and North Face athlete Jim Morrison teamed up to attempt a ski descent of Lhotse, the 4th highest mountain in the world. The Lhotse Couloir is a 60+ degree, 1500 foot line off of the summit that spills into the Lhotse face.

The combination of high altitude, fickle snow conditions, and incredibly steep terrain has turned back multiple expeditions and is part of the reason it is referred to as the dream line. Hilaree Nelson first climbed the line in 2012 when it wasn't in condition to be skied and had been working ever since to get back. Over the past two years Jim and Hilaree have teamed up to climb and ski difficult lines around the world all in preparation for a fall 2018 attempt at this mountain.

Join us to hear more about their preparation, the climb, and one of the biggest Himalayan ski descents ever.

Special Guests - the Bear Canyon Singers

  • 7:30pm
    Emerson Crawford Theater

  • Senior and Student Discounts
    $15 admission, or VIP Pass

  • Presented by LOWA

Mountaineers are special types of athletes. They seek joy in constant challenges and will gladly leave behind the comforts of a warm house to achieve their goals in rough, barren places.

When two people with these characteristics find love the result is a fierce drive to push limits. Join world-class alpinist Ines Papert as she explores new terrain together with her partner Luka Lindič (Slovenia) as a pro-athlete couple that continues to live their dream of climbing big, hard walls while keeping their strong characters in harmony. Join Ines as she shares stories from climbs all around the world, from Piz Badile and Grande Jorasses in the Alps, to "Lost in China" on Kyzyl Asker and an attempt of a new route on the south face of Shishapangma in the Himalya, and recent route development in the Canadian Rockies.
