THE Out­door Cap­i­tal of the UK is proud to sup­port the Fort Wil­liam Moun­tain Festival 2017.

Next year’s festival is pre­sented by Jöt­tnar and is in as­so­ci­a­tion with Three Wise Mon­keys Climb­ing and the Ne­vis Part­ner­ship.

The Fort Wil­liam Moun­tain Festival ex­ists to cre­ate and pro­mote op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple to share and find in­spi­ra­tion in moun­tain experiences, ideas and visions to pro­mote the un­der­stand­ing and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the world’s moun­tain places and moun­tain com­mu­ni­ties.

Festival au­di­ences and par­tici- pants are treated each year to a range of in­spir­ing pre­sen­ta­tions; adren­a­line-filled and thought-pro­vok­ing films; ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion stands and out­door prod­ucts in the ex­hi­bi­tion area; cul­tural, cre­ative and out­door train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties; work­shops and mas­ter­classes; and in­door and out­door ac­tiv­i­ties.

This year marks the 15th that the Out­door Cap­i­tal of the UK has hosted the Fort Wil­liam Moun­tain Festival. The festival an­nu­ally at­tracts more than 2,000 peo­ple over the five days. Speak­ers to the festival come from Canada and be­yond and the au­di­ence is just as di­verse. With bike, climb­ing and snow sports nights, the festival has some­thing for most peo­ple with a taste for the out­doors.
