Here are Megumi and Steve enjoying the classic Italian ice climb Cascade Lillaz. The past few weeks have seen several a Icicle groups enjoying great ice climbing conditions in Val de Cogne in the Aosta valley or north Italy. Next week is our final ice course there. It’s now starting to get warm with spring temperatures, and sadly we bid farewell to another year of ice climbing.
We are finalising the schedule for next year, and due to the popularity of the Italian ice this year, are expanding the number of course dates in the Val de Cogne. The new dates and availability will be updated on the course itinerary, which you can view if you click here. A key attraction of this course, is staying half board in a hotel in Cogne all week.
For the gear freaks out there, you might be interested in taking a peek at some of the ice climbing hardware we stock in our Windermere Mountain Store; technical axes, ice crews, harnesses, crampons, and more… click here.
