Gearing up for the Squamish Mountain Festival in British Columbia

Jul. 11th 2013

Put on your Lumberjack attire, tighten your harness, and get ready for the 8th annual Squamish Mountain Festival (SQUMF) July 17 through 21 in British Columbia. Less than an hour’s drive from Vancouver lies one of B.C.’s world-renown climbing destinations and for five days, the area known as Squamish will be filled with climbing experts, boulderers and all-around crag-cravers.

Hosted by Arc’teryx, SQUFM offers an opportunity to inspire, unite, and celebrate the sport of climbing with others who share the same passion for a life on the rocks. Several types of climbing and bouldering clinics put on by professional guides and pro athletes, gear demos, themed parties, and off-the-rocks activities draw crowds from all over B.C. and the northwestern US.

SCARPA’s Crux Canvas is Another Work of Art

Jul. 9th 2013

A few years back a little known Italian artist named Leonardo da Vinci used canvas as the backdrop for a portrait he called the Mona Lisa—you might have heard of it. Well, the Italian SCARPA family liked the idea of art built upon canvas, and decided to use the material to create their own three-dimensional masterpiece. They call it the Canvas Crux.

26,320 Days SCARPA FACEBOOK GIVEAWAYS start this week

Mar. 27th 2013

To celebrate spring and summer and to ensure you’re spending as much time climbing and running as possible, SCARPA has launched our “26,320” month-long giveaway.

Over the next four weeks, SCARPA is hosting four product giveaways on our Facebook page. Simply head over to facebook.com/scarpana and click the “26,320 Giveaway” button in our Tabs menu to unlock your entry.

Why 26,320? It’s roughly the amount of days you have on Earth and it’s a symbolic reminder for making sure you spend as many of them as possible in the mountains. It’s also a benchmark number for our Facebook community; we have currently just fewer than 25,000 Likes. We would love for you to share the SCARPA page with your friends and grow our community to 26,320 and beyond.

Starting today with the new Spark GTX trail running shoe (for men and women) giveaway, a new contest will start each consecutive Tuesday until April 20. Fans will have the opportunity to win our newest Trail, Approach, and Climbing shoes.

Fans are encouraged to share the SCARPA contest with friends because we’re giving away a pair of shoes to one winner + a friend of their choice each week. Good luck!
