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.
