The GearFest is at the very heart of Chamonix Mountain Festival and is part of the Fête de la Montagne.
The chance to test a range of kit and equipment from our partners and see how it feels in action is an important part of working out what works for you and what you might need in the future.
Our GearFest will take place in Chamonix Sud, at Place Edmond Desailloud – on the end of the square facing Aiguille du Midi lift. Our partner brands will all have stands with knowledgeable reps on-hand to explain and demonstrate items for you. You will be able to try a range of products from a mix of manufacturers and experience the differences for yourself.
We are excited with the brands that are taking part in the GearFest. Please take a look and see what they might bring for you to test!
So come to the Chamonix Mountain Festival GearFest on the 28-29th to find out about the latest designs and innovations to make the best of your time in the mountains.
We’ve also added some amazing Brand Experiences to the line-up for GearFest. Thanks to our partners and their athletes you will have the chance to climb with legends!
Check out the list of climbs/workshops/events and book directly with your preferred brand here.
