Do you want to lighten up your pack for backpacking, bike touring, or ski mountaineering? Join us for a weekend of clinics and demos as we explore various options on how to lighten your load. All events will take place at the Mountain Shop. Coupons will be offered during each session as you learn new and exciting ways to update the gear in your pack and on your back. Attendees are encouraged to bring in their own gear for a weight reduction analysis by our knowledgeable staff.
Six Moon Designs will be present with their latest shelters and a preview of their new pack line. PCTA will be represented, and Trail Butter will be there on Sunday giving out delicious samples.
The weekend will be highlighted by our very own Gary Lawton, who will be giving a presentation on his 2012 Pacific Crest Trail thru hike. Gary will be thru hiking the Continental Divide Trail this summer, and will be selling photos and prints throughout the weekend as a fundraiser for his upcoming journey.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates leading up to the Ultralight Fest. The clinic/presentation list is listed below, ending with a chance to partake in a round table discussion of UL gear and philosophy, on Sunday afternoon.
