Alpina 2016 American Alpine Club Athlete Speaker Tour
Alpina Watches supports the AAC National Athlete Speaker Tour, featuring "the Swiss Machine" Ueli Steck.
The American Alpine Club (AAC) Athlete Speaker Tour featuring legendary speed climber Ueli Steck will kick-off in New York City on August 28 and end in Denver, Colorado, September 14.
Ueli Steck is best known for his solo speed climbs of the Eiger Nordwand, the Matterhorn, and more recently, the south face of Annapurna. The climber will present a visually stunning and interactive slideshow about his experiences climbing the world's largest mountains, setting speed records without oxygen, his daring 82 Summits Challenge, and recent trip to the Himalaya.
"Ueli Steck embodies the Swiss sportsmanship and mountaineering values to the fullest," said Alpina Watches CEO Guido Benedini. "Being a historic Swiss watch manufacturer, we are proud to support his AAC National Athlete Speaker Tour, which we are sure will inspire the current and young generations of Alpinists and mountain lovers."
