Get Psyched for 2013: Limited Edition MAMMUT Calendar Giveaway!

I’ll be honest: after my not-so-rave review about Mammut’s Refine Skort for lady climbers was published on The Gearcaster, I figured my relationship with this premiere brand was surely demolished. I nervously sent them the link to my review, and much to my surprise, they actually thanked me for my honest feedback – and the skort has since been pulled from their product line due to a much stronger response to their Realization Shorts. That, right there, is what I love about the outdoor industry.  

The Déja Vu 2013 calendar cover from Mammut.

But Mammut‘s excellence doesn’t stop there. This week, they offered to give readers of The Morning Fresh a chance to win one of four copies of their limited edition 2013 Deja Vu calendar, featuring stunning photography by Stefan SchlumpfTwelve of their pro team climbers (like Sean McColl and Anna Stöhr) and mountaineers were posed in some truly creative abstract climbing scenes, including a bubble bath of chalk balls, a sultry spine lined with bolts, and a throne of ice axes.

For a look at the making of the calendar, give this sweet behind-the-scenes video a gander. Talk about a production – according to this article, the shoot required “500 cable binders, 160 ice picks, 400 chalk balls, 2,500 metres of rope, several cubic metres of wood and countless screws.

Check out these teaser images:

    A friend of mine moved to Spain today to become an English Teacher. Plans are already under way for me to visit and do the Running of the Bulls! That’s my 2013 adventure!

  2. Tammy Melton says:

    I’m on the journey of a lifetime! Going back to grad school after 5 years of “real work” is extremely humbling and makes you long for the days of freedom and trips outdoors. After multiple setbacks this year, a dislocated shoulder from a car accident and multiple tendon pulls, I’m just getting back into a routine. My love of climbing will never go away and I plan on filling 2013 with road trips, camping and climb time!

    • Katie Boué says:

      Tammy, I love hearing that you still have 100% of the spirit and dedication to the climbing lifestyle even after all your big setbacks in 2012. Cheers to making 2013 the ultimate year for climb time and outdoor adventures. 🙂 I hope you’ll get to come play with us during our trip at some point!

  3. Kurt says:

    im looking forward to climbing outside at either LRC, Hospital Boulders, or HP 40 multiple times (if possible) with the FSU climbing club in 2013

  4. Marieke says:

    After a hard year starting up my own business I really look forward to a 14-days-holiday this summer 2013 in Arco! Finally some days off, enjoy the italian vino and gelatti and just climb! Wish you all the best for 2013 and happy Xmas!

    • Katie Boué says:

      Oooh, trad climbing! Niko and I are hoping to do our first trad climbs during our big 2013 trip, “many scary moments” will probably be the defining phrase of our trad experiences, haha! Good luck!

  5. Jas says:

    It may not seem like a big deal, but I’m looking forward to joining my university’s climbing club in January and getting into climbing more! I went bouldering a couple times recently and fell in love with it so I’m stoked to learn more about the sport. Also, your posts about your travels are getting me inspired to finally travel somewhere (I don’t know where yet) this summer! 🙂

  6. alpy4000 says:

    I’m going to climb some 4000m peaks on Monte Rosa massif in the Alps. We would love to fight and defeat “Man eater” – Liskamm. After that, me and my friiends are going to live our dream on summit od Mt Blanc!

  7. Jonathan Wood says:

    Recovering from my broken heel enough to climb anything. It’s been five months! Ready to get on some slabs in the Witchitas soon. Hopefully I’ll be well enough to make a run up a Flat Iron this spring. Baby steps.

  8. Ryan says:

    I’m working on my Nursing degree in college and trying to climb as much as possible too. Can’t wait to learn how to climb multi-pitch routes this spring!

  9. Dominick Riccio says:

    This January i will have just completed a degree in Math and Sciences. Soon after In mid February i am driving across the U.S. with my best friend and his Alaskan Husky! We are from Upstate NY (Adirondacks) and our plan is to head South to escape the snow. Once we hit the Virgina area we are heading WEST. Hitting all the Major N.P’s on the way. Driving up the coast to Tacoma. The plans fall apart then and we are gonna go with the flow. Then once summer comes i work at a remote back country lodge nestled in the Adirondack Park. I spend all summer hiking the High Peaks. I would love a calendar to keep track of adventurous year!

  10. Lance Flake says:

    2013 is going to be a great year for hitting over 10 different countries in Europe. Most of will be camping with the occaisional hotel/castle.

  11. Matt Moy (@hmmoy) says:

    Calendars help organization. It can’t hurt, especially with amazing photography. Go Mammut! I’m looking forward to climbing at RRG when the weather gets slightly warmer! And then graduating from med school!

  12. Brendon Smith says:

    I’m looking forward to going to moab, utah for my first time this spring …and i only have to skip one week of school to do it!! Haha i need the calendar to keep my priorities straight. Climbing first!

  13. Cary says:

    Among the many adventures planned this year, the one I’m looking forward to most is completing the remodel of my home. It’s all gravy after that!

  14. Jared Harding says:

    What I am looking forward to the most in 2013 is climbing Monkey Face in Smith Rock. This past summer was my first year climbing and I was lucky enough to spend a weekend down at Smith, climbing and fellowshiping with fellow climbers. I loved the atmosphere and didnt want to ever leave. I will be back in 2013 to conquer Monkey Face.

  15. Jeff H. says:

    Monkey Face…but I’m 43 and haven’t climbed in about 18 years. Training started last week! Family, grueling work weeks, and tons of other commitments will make just the training difficult let alone the actual climb.
    Jared…same goal but from two very different perspectives.

    Beyond that though, I need to find my zen again. Rid myself of undo stress. I’m hoping these two goals go hand in hand.

  16. Dustin says:

    first off, I’m looking forward to (hopefully) being accepted to grad school, moving away from DC, and starting the next chapter in my life. I’m also looking forward to taking the next step as a climber and hopefully achieving 5.13 and V8 outside.

  17. Matthew Robinson says:

    Done with college as of today! Going to work until August to save up some cash then spend the rest of 2013 being a dirtbagin climber and chasing summer down from Northwest U.S.A through South America! So Excited!

    • Katie Boué says:

      Congrats on your graduation, Matthew! I love that you’re heading out to embrace the dirtbag lifestyle – maybe we’ll cross paths during my yearlong climbing trip in 2013. Cheers!

  18. mrobzen says:

    I graduated college as of today! Now I am going to work until August to save up enough money Then I am going to start Dirtbaging on the road and climbing all fall then chase summer from the Northwest down into South America! So Excited!

  19. Josh says:

    My plans for 2013 are to go climbing at least once a week if not more, and to spend a couple weeks in Yosemite climbing as much as possible. I started climbing earlier this year and am loving it.

  20. Dustin Glasner says:

    (I thought I posted this?) I’m looking forward to (hopefully) being accepted to grad school, moving away from my current home base, and starting the next “thing” in my life. I’m also looking forward to continuing my growth as a climber and hopefully achieving 5.13 and V8 outside!

  21. Jonathan Greene says:

    I’m really looking forward to taking my 17-year-old son into the backcountry for some skiing. We did a day trip last year, and he loved it so much he worked hard over the summer to earn some money buy his own set up (including Mammut pants). It will be his last big trip with Dad before college. Can’t wait.

  22. Walter Lee says:

    I’m stoked to go ice climbing for the first time this winter with the UW-Madison Mountaineering Club. Also looking forward to getting back to climbing after spraining an ankle on a crash pad.

    • Katie Boué says:

      Hope you’re healing up nicely, nothin’ worse than sitting on the sidelines when you wish you could be climbing – cheers to a speedy recovery, and a 2013 filled with climbing adventures!

  23. Tori Mitchell says:

    I graduate from Colorado State University in 3 days! Then my adventures for 2013 begin! It has been long awaited to finish school and go explore! I plan on traveling to Canada, possibly Banff National Park, Utah, possibly Japan! I hope to do lots of skiing, climbing and mountain biking this year! I absolutely can not wait any longer. As soon as I get that degree in my hand Im takin’ off!

  24. Shannon says:

    A friend of mine is getting married in India. I can’t wait to backpack to the wedding, and then do some trecking in the Himalayas after. It’ll be a double adventure!

  25. Josh Graham says:

    Graduating college with my outdoor education and recreational leadership degree in the spring, starting my new summer job in Wisconsin and during my time off me and two other friends start our “50 before 50” trip doing all the High Points in the states starting with our very own in Wyoming!

  27. Max M says:

    I’d have to say the ski touring i’m doing around Engelberg, switzerland to celebrate graduating college. I was able to do it in 4 years even with all that climbing and skiing!

  28. Adam Woolman says:

    I’m looking forward to an ice climbing trip at Mt. Evans, a lot of skiing at Crested Butte and most importantly attending film school and making lots of crazy awesome movies!!

  29. Daniel says:

    i am looking forward to hearing back from NOLS on if i will be in the mountaineering instructor course and get one step closer to my dream of being mountaineering guide

  30. Chris C says:

    My big journey this year will be spending a month out of Hilo, HI. Even though I’ll be there for school, I’ll have my weekends free for backpacking including the 40 mile rt climb of Mauna Loa!

  31. Jessica Jenkins says:

    I am looking forward to hopefully an injury free year and up for some epic climbing adventures with some amazing friends! Plowing through my last few semesters to a bachelors degree in biology from UCF. Also, I turn 21 and am planning on having some gambling Vegas adventures to celebrate!

  32. Vinsensa Radita says:

    My great adventure in 2013 will be saving enough money to buy a DSLR camera for my younger brother. I hope in the mid 2013 I will be able to save enough money so that my brother can use it for his last year in college. He’s studying visual communication design that requires him to do some photography assignments. For the last 3 years he’s been using his friends’ cameras. I hope that I can buy him a camera that can be his investment before he enters the real world, since his future job might requires him to do photography.

  33. Vinsensa Radita says:

    Beside saving money to buy a DSLR camera for my brother, for next year I hope that I will have a fulltime job. I’m having a follow-up interview next Monday. If I get the job, it’ll be my first fulltime job after this whole year I’m having part time jobs. The new job (if I get the job) will of course bring new adventures for my life. It will also give me more money to save and I hope that in the end of 2013 I can celebrate new year in Mount Bromo Indonesia with my family.

  34. Michael H. says:

    My personal journey in 2013 will be to learn to surf while in Costa Rica, climb for the first time in Colorado, and to better myself all around.
