Chamonix really delivered for Saturday's Ski Alpinism & Splitboarding clinics at the Alpine Academy with full on mid-winter conditions - face shots included.

Check the recap of Day 3 on The Bird:
Arc'teryx Alpine Academy: Day Three. Stepping out of the Aguille du Midi at 3840m you would have been hard pressed to convince yourself it's mid-June here in Chamonix. The precipation that drenched the valley over the previous two days provided a massive blanket of fresh snow in the alpine.

Day 1 of the Alpine Academy in beautiful Chamonix is in the bag! In a nut shell: Mountain Clean Up + 100+ Stoked mountain folk + a heck of a lot of Gore-Tex = HUGE SUCCESS.

Check out the pics on The Bird below and follow ArcteryxHQ on Snapchat to see more Academy action from the eyes of climber and semi-professional snap-chatter, Jonathan Siegrist.

"Squamish is a mecca, home to a distinct brand of granite crystals, crimping, smearing and jamming."

Delivering unrivalled performance, Arc'teryx quality conveys absolute confidence. Pursue Perfection.
Introduction
Arc’teryx was founded in Vancouver, BC, Canada in 1991, where it maintains its Worldwide Head Office, design studios, and main manufacturing facilities.

Driven by innovation, Arc’teryx was founded to build better gear. We didn’t just focus on incremental advancements, but on radically improving the status quo. We began with climbing harnesses and then proceeded to tackle packs and apparel with the same single-minded obsession for creating the lightest, best performing, and highest quality products available. To realize our vision we’ve created groundbreaking new construction technology, developed paradigm-shifting designs and harnessed major fabric technology developments.

The resulting deluge of recognition, and mimicry, has cemented our reputation at the pinnacle of the outdoor world. Our designers strive not to better the competition, but to challenge assumptions about how outdoor products should be built. Their visionary thinking is fused with our proprietary construction processes and our unrivalled craftsmanship to create the best outdoor gear made. Regardless of product, by selecting our brand you're insured that your Arc’teryx product will be one of the most innovative and superbly crafted packs, harnesses or mountain apparel pieces available.

As the next season arrives, we continue to raise the bar for the industry by introducing superior advancements in fit and fabrics, and revising and developing new products. A concentrated mountain core quests for new horizons, and we work feverishly to supply innovative solutions. We refine, tailor and hone until revolutions emerge. Intrinsically linked with the future, we passionately stoke this evolution in action.
