VICE Fest is an ice climbing festival for beginners and experienced climbers alike. If you want to learn about ice climbing, this is the event for you! Ride coordination, climbing gear, food, lodging, professional instruction, a day of ice climbing, a professional presentation, rad tshirt, dance party, and huge gear raffle are all included. Since the event is professionally guided, you’ll get to hangout with local legends like Freddie Wilkinson, Janet Wilkinson, Bayard Russell, Anne Skidmore, Kevin Mahoney, Matt McCormick, Alexa Siegel, Matt Shove, Erik Eisele, and more!
The VICE Fest entry fee covers an entire weekend of entertainment, activities, and fun, which can easily cost more than $350 elsewhere. VICE Fest is run in partnership with the Tufts Mountain Club (TMC). Go here if you would like to become a TMC member.
VICE Fest is a team effort. As a participant, you’re expected to:
- Carpool to the event on Friday and back to Boston on Sunday (offer spots in your car).
- Help with chores including a full clean-up on Sunday morning to leave the facility in great shape.
- Bring as much of your warm outdoor gear as possible. Mountaineering boots, crampons, harnesses, helmets, ice tools, and ropes will be available; but please bring everything you own to share with others.
