The first ever Chamonix Mountain Festival takes place June 1st to June 8th. Organised by mountaineers, for mountaineers, it offers a program of movies, lectures, workshops, brand expos and — best of all — gallic cuisine.

"French food, even canteen food is good in France!" promise the organizers.

The meet is open to all climbers and mountaineers of all levels.

Also kicking off June 14th to 16th is the Arc'teryx Arc'ademy, a weekend of workshops for those looking to improve their skills in the hills. The most popular courses are already booked-out but you can still find places for the overnight bivvy course. Don't forget to take some of that French food with you.
