Push beyond the 4'000 meter limit with Mammut

Seize your chance! Together with Mammut, you have a chance to push past the 4,000 meter limit. Over a period of three days, you will learn all the vital foundations that will ultimately lead you to the absolute highlight on the summit. Along the way, you can look forward to some tips and tricks from experienced mountain guides. Dani Arnold and Stephan Siegrist, two athletes from the Mammut Pro Team, will be by your side to offer advice. They will accompany and support you on this unforgettable adventure.

 

The base camp at the Gandegghütte mountain cabin in Zermatt is located in the heart of the imposing Pennine Alps. The cabin will be reserved exclusively for festival participants for these days, to allow a relaxed gathering of like-minded people. In addition to the athletic activities, there will also be an attractive supporting program. The highlights include exciting talks by our athletes and by the product manager of the Eiger Extreme Collection, who will reveal some fascinating background information about the products in the Eiger series. There will also be product workshops, good food and, of course, the amazing mountain scenery.
