Oh, Chamonix.. (picture from Garrett Drayna)

The Scene : you are a Southern California mountaineer, and your little toesies are cold! Time to get some of those sweet Mountaineering Boots. So, you head down to your neighborhood boot store and try on boots from their massive stock, getting that perfect fit. You wake from this dream and realize that there are no stores within a couple of hundred miles at the very least.

The Solution : Boot Party!

The idea is simple . Show up, bring all your mountaineering boots (new, old, and broken!). We'll end up with a giant pile of boots so those in the market can get recommendations and get an idea of sizing.

We'll have snacks, drinks, and some sweet videos playing on the projector!

When : Wednesday , October 17 at 8:00 pm. Where : Chester House, 171 N Chester Ave, Pasadena
