International Mountain Summit 2012: “Present your mountain project” with the GORE-TEX Experience Tour

International Mountain Summit (IMS) is a regular feature in the calendar of the majority of outdoor enthusiasts. Every year at the end of October the world’s top mountaineers and alpine adventurers, including the likes of Reinhold Messner and Edurne Pasaban, attend the event and share their experiences with IMS attendees. Using the motto: “IMS Adventure by the GORE-TEX brand”, this year the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour is offering three lucky winners the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present their own mountain project at IMS. Applications can be submitted online at www.experience-tour.de until 22 August 2012.

 There is something so majestic about mountains. Perhaps that is why they hold such an irresistible attraction. For many outdoor enthusiasts there’s nothing they’d rather do than spend as much time as possible in the some of the world’s most magnificent mountain ranges. These moments are very often captured in words and pictures. Whether they go walking or climbing, alpine enthusiasts very rarely return from their adventures without visual mementos and their own very personal story.

“Present your mountain project”

 Three GORE-TEX® Experience Tour participants will be given the chance to present their own outdoor project to the IMS attendees. The jury will be looking for avid adventurers who have a special story to tell. The lucky winners will each be given 30 to 40 minutes to present their talk to the audience under the motto “IMS Adventure by the GORE-TEX® brand”. Afterwards there will be about 20 to 30 minutes for questions from the audience. The winners will deliver their talks on 22, 23 and 25 October at IMS in Brixen/South Tyrol.

If you are passionate about the mountains and have exciting adventures to share, you shouldn’t miss out on this opportunity. The application phase runs until 22 August 2012. Applications can be made via the Web site of the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour and via the facebook fan page.
