Press release

July 02, 2024

RECCO builds upon longstanding relationship with Arc’teryx to provide attendees backcountry safety education in the legendary mountaineering mecca 

RECCO, manufacturer of advanced rescue technology, will be a supporting partner of the Arc’teryx Alpine Academy in Chamonix, from July 4-7, 2024. The Arc’teryx Alpine Academy has been a staple in experiential alpine education, inspiration and community for the past 12 years. Its 13th year will take attendees to the fabled slopes of Chamonix where participants can attend clinics lead by IFMGA guides, athlete-led workshops, film premiers and more.  

RECCO has been a longtime partner of Arc’teryx, and this will be the brand’s fifth year participating in the Alpine Academy. RECCO has consistently supported all iterations of Arc’teryx’s academies over the years, and RECCO technology can be found in key Arc’teryx apparel pieces across lines and seasons. RECCO reflectors are currently integrated in all of Arc’teryx’s GORE-TEX PRO shells, the Norvan trail running collection jackets and run vests, and select climbing backpacks.

RECCO will have a booth in the Alpine village, and will support the First Aid and Basic Rescue clinic taking place on Saturday and Sunday.

Participants are also invited to join the RECCO Community Run, lead by a professional trail running guide through the stunning Chamonix singletrack on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. Attendees are invited to stop by the booth to say hello to the RECCO team and try their hand at the RECCO Search Challenge.

Search and rescue professionals will be there to teach participants how to use the handheld RECCO detector. For exact timing on the event village activations, check out the Arc’teryx Academy Instagram
