Alpenglow Sports Winter Speaker Series, Adrian Ballinger Third Times a Charm: A Journey to Ske Makalu

January 5th | 7-9pm | Olympic Valley Event Center

In the spring of 2022, Adrian Ballinger made his third attempt of the past decade to ski Makalu, the 5th tallest mountain in the world. Makalu, famed for its steep and technical terrain, was one of only two 8,000-meter peaks that had not yet been skied. After two failed attempts in 2012 and 2015, 2022 seemed like the ideal time for another try, this time without supplemental oxygen in the “new style” of 8,000-meter ski descents. Conditions, changing ethics of Himalayan climbing, ski partners, and an unexpected pregnancy had different ideas.

Alpenglow Sports Winter Speaker Series, Brette Harrington Versatility Fueled by Mountain Creativity

January 19th | 7-9pm | Olympic Valley Event Center

Brette Harrington is a bold alpinist, accomplished 5.13+ trad climber, calculated soloist, expert ski mountaineer, big wall sender, and graceful mixed climber. Harrington owes her lengthy title to her versatility in the mountains. Her show Versatility Fueled by Mountain Creativity, documents Harrington’s evolution in the various disciplines of climbing and skiing from beginner to cutting-edge professional.

Over the past two years, Harrington has pursued (and accomplished) a diverse array of rock and ski pursuits, including free climbing Yosemite’s famous El Capitan, first descents in Baffin Island, and big wall climbing routes in northern Spain. Her run of accomplishments is astounding even to the grizzled veteran, and truly began when she quit competing in slopestyle and moved to Squamish, British Columbia in order to chase her rock climbing dreams. It was here that she met the love of her life Marc Andre Leclerc, a story well documented in The Alpinist.

Harrington’s theme throughout her show Versatility Fueled by Mountain Creativity is the importance of strengthening weakness and overcoming mental and physical challenges.
