Leave No Trace Expeditions: Trips to the World’s Most Remote Mountains and the Mt. Logan 2010 Ski Expedition just announced the ColdAvenger as their gear pick of the trip!
Zoran Vasic, a very hard core individual, has an outstanding mountaineering resume that spans the globe. He began his career in mountaineering in Bosnia in the 80′s. There he completed five years of training in rock climbing, mountaineering, winter and summer courses to then become a registered alpinist (badge #112) with the Alpine Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. For the next 12 years, Vasic climbed all over Europe in Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia and Italy. He moved to Canada in 1997 to immediately join the Alpine Club in Canada to then tackle peaks all across the northern territories. To say at the very least, this guy knows what he is talking about. So, the mention of the ColdAvenger as being helpful on his expedition is important, and being chosen for the Mt. Logan Expedition Gear Pick is huge!
Mt. Logan is gnarly. In the Yukon Territory, Alaska, it is ranked as the second highest peak in North America and is usually reached via helicopter. The main summit height of Mt. Logan is 5959 meters (19,551 ft) high and it boasts the largest base circumference of any mountain on Earth. Since Mt. Logan is close to the Gulf of Alaska it gets hit by severe storms with winds in the spring exceeding 160 km/hr with temperatures ranging from -40 to +80 F.
The ColdAvenger came in very handy for Zoran Vasic and his expedition crew on Mt. Logan. Thanks for the honor and we hope to keep up with you on the next adventure.
Stay Out Longer!
