COGNE ICE OPENING MOTTO

Ice climbing is much about intensity and truth, about values, uniqueness and multiple layers. So its roots may lay now shrouded in wafts of mist, it was born out of curiosity, rebelliousness and adventure. It formed out breath taking stories and charismatic characters. It has an undying pull despite its inherent dangers.

With our Ice Opening we want to celebrate the deep cosmos of ice climbing and share the spirit and the stories behind it.

We’re looking forward to meet you at the COGNE ICE OPENING on 13th-17th of December 2018!

This year we are offering you a whole new range of cultural events around the fascinating world of Ice Climbing in addition to our traditional Ice Climbing, Mixed- and Drytooling Clinics, all led by UIAGM Guides and World Class Athletes.

We will kick off the Event on Thursday Evening in the Bar Anais. 
Get psyched on the climbing action during the clinics from Friday till Sunday.
Newly organised this year are the seminars on Friday late afternoon with three different seminars dedicated to the world of ice climbing.
Every day in the evening we will enjoy together dinners in the Bar Cascate, Hotel Ondezana and the Hotel Arolla. 
As every year there will be the Saturday Night Movie and the Raffle! 

Registration will be possible from September 23rd at 4pm, by requesting the registration form.
