Two weekends dedicated to testing the timeless Vanguard boot among Italy’s most suggestive alpine panoramas.
The 2022 edition of the Vanguard Experience project signed La Sportiva has come to an end: an initiative originating from the will of company from Trentino to allow mountain enthusiasts to test the Vanguard ski mountaineering boot and experience unique emotions together with their own outdoor myths, being “infected” by their passion and their enthusiasm.
The first of the two stages of the event took place in Courmayeur, in the exceptional setting of Mont Blanc: here the participants, gathered inside the La Sportiva Store, got to know all the information about the potential of the Vanguard product thanks to the intervention of Sandro De Zolt, Mountain Guide, Product Specialist of La Sportiva Mountain and Ski Mountaineering boots. The ski boots were actually tested the following day on different types of snow, where every skier had the opportunity to engage in technical and stimulating activities experiencing the mountains to their full potential. The exciting day was also a chance to test the important collaboration between the company of Ziano di Fiemme and the historical Society of Alpine Guides of Courmayeur, the oldest, most numerous and prestigious in the Alps.
The second meeting took place in Trentino, with the starting point in the La Sportiva store of Pozza di Fassa, following the same format used in the Valdostan stage: speech and view of the products, ending the evening with the intervention of Giuliano Bordoni – ambassador La Sportiva, Mountain Guide and free-rider, who entertained the guests with anecdotes and advice focused on the theme of safety in the mountains. The ski mountaineering activity took place the following day on the Catinaccio mountain range, where guests were able to test the Vanguard boot while enjoying the breath-taking views of the Lagorai group and the Queen of the Dolomites, the Marmolada. A day that not only gave participants a comfortable and safe experience thanks to the use of Vanguard boots, but that also helped to create moments of sharing and strengthened ties between friends and colleagues, immersed in the most evocative panoramas of our country.
“Vanguard is a boot designed for Ski Touring and Free-Touring, extremely lightweight, versatile and exceptionally comfortable“, said Giulia Delladio, Corporate Marketing Director of the company from Ziano di Fiemme. In fact, it represents a reliable, functional, and versatile ally even for the most demanding free tourers: thanks to the robust but lightweight structure combined with its important flex, this boot is the ideal companion for performance climbs and off-track adrenaline descents, perfect for those looking for uncompromised performance.
Vanguard Experience represents the natural evolution of the DNA of the Trentino brand, which places at the heart of every innovation the attention to the person and the human aspect, together with maximum quality and attention to detail, always having an eye for the environment and sustainability. The philosophy of the renowned Italian brand consists in fact in a concrete, human and direct approach, which looks to the future without forgetting its territory: innovation with passion, for your mountain.
