Do you summit mountains dynamically, quickly and at ease? You’re not intimidated by the thought of covering several thousand vertical feet in a day and you prefer to be above the treeline. As soon as winter begins, you are grabbing your touring skis from storage and switching to speed touring. If the above statements describe you, we lke to think that Athletic Mountaineering is your sport!

Your alarm rings. It’s still dark outside, but you're wide awake and ready to take on the day.
A quick breakfast, followed by filling up your pack and putting on your headlamp - then you are off! Your stride is purposeful and dynamic, you move quickly and easily. The route you have your eyes set on today typically takes alpinists three days, but you're ambitions are high and you're plannign to do it in 13 hours. 

You planned every single detail of the route. To begin, the trail leads gently upwards through meadows. You push on, determined to stick to your schedule. Better to walk a little quicker now so you have some time in rest a bit later. As the trail leads through a tangle of alpine pines, it gets steeper and the sky is getting lighter. You are greeted by the first rays of sun as you cross a large scree field above the treeline, only to find that yourself a few meters later ankle deep in snow. The next stretch to the rocky summit ridge requires care – the snowfield is slippery.

Athletic Mountaineering Women: Apparel and Equipment

Comfortable, classic range for ambitious alpinists who often undertake multi-day mountain tours, but in general stay under 10,000 feet.

A short break and you move on – you still have a lot of ground to cover today.

As an athletic mountaineer, you’re aware that the conditions in the mountains or in the span of a tour can change very rapidly. It might have been warm and sunny in the valley, but a short while later you could be staring into an icy, wind storm on the summit ridge. Varying temperatures and varying alpine terrain conditions put you and your equipment to the test. So – which DYNAFIT products are right for your speed-oriented pursuit?


In athletic mountaineering, the individual layers of a clothing system are key to overall performance. Gore-Tex® hard shells, Polartec®Alpha® insulation und Polartec® Thermal Pro® base layers. In the case of footwear, the focus is twofold: grip in varying conditions and fit.
