The Michigan Ice Fest has always been a place where climbers can come and get a first look at the most innovative new climbing products on the market. This year we will give a preview here as well as having it available at our online store as well as “in person” at the Michigan Ice Fest Headquarters during the Festival!
During Ice Fest our headquarters is the ultimate “toy shop” that a climber can dream of. From clothing to gear if it is made for ice climbing, you’ll find it here! All of the leading manufacturers will have booths set up displaying and selling the latest and greatest gear with sales representatives on hand to answer any questions you might have. And that’s not even the best part! As a participant at the Michigan Ice Fest you are entitled to a 20% discount on all purchases made during the festival.
