The BMC is pleased to announce that Montane is supporting the GB Ice Climbing Team as the official kit sponsor for the next two competition seasons.

Montane is already a strategic partner of the BMC, and this support further strengthens the collaboration between Montane and the BMC.

For the upcoming 2018/19 competition season, the GB Ice Climbing Team will be revamped and re-selected.

The aim is to achieve world-class results from the team, and the BMC has worked closely with Mountaineering Scotland to clarify both the team philosophy and selection policy to create clear and transparent selection criteria.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to compete for the GB Ice Climbing Team, then why not apply? The deadline for applying for the 2019 team is 2 January 2019. Full details here

Zoe Spriggins, BMC competitions programme manager, said: “We are super psyched for a revamped, refreshed GB Ice Climbing Team and we can’t thank our wonderful sponsors, Montane, enough for its support. It’s always a pleasure to work closely with Mountaineering Scotland on international projects, and we’re hoping to have a fresh team ready to start the season in January and build on the success of previous years.”

Jamie Smith, Mountaineering Scotland, said: “We welcome Montane as the new supporter of the GB Ice Climbing Team, and wish all the team the best of luck for the coming season.”

Terry Stephenson, Montane head of marketing, said: “We are delighted to be the official kit sponsor for the GB Ice Climbing Team. We have a long history of supporting athletes and expeditions, and are excited to help the team push itself – and our kit – to the absolute limit. This partnership further galvanises our collaborative relationship with the BMC, for whom we are the Recommended Clothing and Pack Partner, and we look forward to working even closer with them and Mountaineering Scotland over the next two seasons.” 

The BMC and Mountaineering Scotland aim to submit a team to compete in seven events during the 2018/19 season, starting with Switzerland on 24-26 January. 

The GB Ice Climbing Team depends on the help of volunteers, and applications are currently being sought for a voluntary team manager to help develop the team in this new and exciting direction.
