Legendary expeditioner Conrad Anker joins Snowbound Expo

 Snowbound Expo, the home of outdoor & winter sports will take place November 18-20, Boston Hynes Convention Center

American, Conrad Anker, known for his ascents and conquering mountains will join the incredible line up of inspirational speakers across three days at Snowbound Expo, previously known as the Boston Ski & Snow Expo.

 

Anker, world renown expeditioner, former rock-climbing team leader for The North Face and author has signed up to share his adventures at the next biggest snow show in Boston. He will join an impressive line-up of Olympic skiers, snowboarders and adventurers set to take the stages at Snowbound.  The Seirus Inspiration Stage & Snow Skills Cabin will host six-time Olympian Bode Miller, pioneer of extreme skiing, Dan Egan, athlete and storyteller Dani Reyes Acosta, disability access strategist and athlete, Vasu Sojitra and more to be confirmed before being added to the full speaker list.

No stranger to Mount Everest, the Alaskan mountains, and many other ranges in Antarctica and Pakistan, Anker is known as one of the most prolific mountaineers and alpinists alive today.  Over decades in the mountains, he has explored the Himalayas and Montana equally and has been inspired by other ecosystems and cultures, not mentioning the physical and communal landscape of his hometown of Bozeman. Phenomenal expeditions have seen Anker face extreme conditions and challenging weather, surviving massive avalanches on his way. He has climbed Mount Everest three times, most famously in 1999, when he discovered the remains of George Mallory, a British climber who died attempting Everest in 1924, helping to shed more light on one of mountaineering’s most famous mysteries. His career has led him to pioneer difficult new routes in the most remote destinations on earth and is hailed a legend among the climbing community.

Anker will share inspirational tales from his career at this year’s Snowbound Expo in Boston, set to amaze visitors. In his words, Anker suggests there is no living without climbing and when asked about joining the show line up, Anker commented: ‘For me, the mountains are where I feel most alive and if I can inspire others to start rock climbing or join their first expedition from being at Snowbound Expo, that would be amazing! I look forward to answering questions about my journey and sharing some stories with the community in Boston too.’

Snowbound Expo will be the first Boston show for ski and snowboarding since 2019 and with plans ramping up, it is set to be an incredible few days.
