The basecamp is the place where the journey begins. A home away from home. A place to meet people, exchange ideas, trade stories and make plans.
With the launch of the Basecamps in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc and Cortina d’Ampezzo, The North Face has created spaces for explorers of all kinds to go out and explore.
Join us at basecamps across Europe with exploration of all shapes and sizes available for free to all XPLR Pass Members. With the goal of enabling exploration for all and inspiring the next generation of explorers, the Basecamp events will always be free. Whether it’s your first ski tour of the season, freeride safety or first aid, the packed schedule at each location has you covered.
Anchored in three of the most iconic mountain destinations in Europe – Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Germany, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in France, and Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy – The North Face Basecamps are hubs for local communities of climbers, trail runners and mountaineers, and serve as the perfect hub for all visitors in the iconic mountain towns. Tailored to the location and season, Basecamp gives explorers the opportunity to join unique experiences in the mountains, meet likeminded people and test the most innovative apparel and technical gear.
After already reaching more than 3,000 attendees at 25 events in 2022, Basecamps continue to grow this year. This September, the community space at The North Face store in Garmisch-Partenkirchen opened its doors for the first time and offers a customisation station to add a personal touch to the gear, as well as lockers to store belongings before heading out to the mountains.
Exploration is at the heart of the brand’s DNA. With the Basecamp program, The North Face takes another step towards its mission to encourage people to live a life full of exploration.
