Mammut will be back with their mobile Beacon Park set up at Ragged Mountain Equipment on both Saturday and Sunday of the Festival.  The beacon park will be open 2-4 on Saturday and 9-11 on Sunday.

Buying all the right equipment is great, but knowing how to use it is even better!! The beacon park is radio controlled and has 3 targets that can be remotely operated. The targets can be probed for and have a motion sensor built in that indicates a positive strike to the person operating the control unit. It will be set up right behind Ragged, so it’s a super convenient place to practice using your beacon in a real world setting. Don’t have one of your own? Mammut can fix that! They will have a handful of beacons for folks to use including the new Barryvox and Barryvox S models.

It’s a great chance to check out some Mammut gear, such as their Barryvox S transceiver.  It’s never too late to give your gear a once over and make sure it’s ready when you need it.

Mammut was started in 1862 by rope maker Kaspar Tanner in the Swiss town of Dintikon.  The Mammut logo was introduced in 1943, and the first Barryvox was introduced in 1968.  In 2018 Mammut became on of the founding members of the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, and their WE CARE initiative was launched, putting equal priority on performance and ethical production.
