Mammut Shoe Chase Launches Summer 09 Shoe Line With Geo-Caching Contest Across North America
The Mammut Shoe Chase will lead participants to various alpine, backpacking, urban and dealer locations, where sponsored athletes and other Mammut representatives have hidden the caches. Of their many new styles, Mammut will focus on the launch of the multi-functional Obelisk DLX, the Granite hiking boot, and the backpacking-inspired Mountain Crest LTH, and women’s Mount Vista, which will be hidden at locations ranging from easier-to-access urban settings to more challenging alpine environments.
Participants will use navigation skills and geo-caching techniques to locate the caches, based on coordinates listed on Mammut.ch/basecamp. If a participant is the first to locate a cache, they instantly win the pair of Mammut shoes at that location.
As each cache has points associated with it, all participants will be eligible for a grand prize at the end of the contest. Participants record their findings in an online logbook, accruing the “points” found within each cache.
Points will be awarded based on speed, difficulty and number of caches found, with participant with the most points winning the grand prize- head-to-toe Mammut gear, and a guided excursion with Mammut’s premier athlete
“We are really excited about the new footwear line, and the quality and performance we are offering to anyone active in the outdoors, whether hiking, climbing, or backpacking,” said
