Welcome to the 2023 Mount Washington Valley Ice Fest, Online Auction
Since 2018, the Access Fund has been the non-profit beneficiary of the Ice Fest auction and we're excited to be back in 2023!
Access Fund is a nonprofit advocacy organization that leads and inspires the climbing community toward sustainable access and conservation of the climbing environment. Our mission-driven work encompasses six key program areas:
- Climbing policy and advocacy
- Stewardship and conservation
- Local support and mobilization
- Land acquisition and protection
- Risk management and landowner support
As we continue to see unprecedented growth in climbing and outdoor recreation in general the work of the Access Fund has never been more important. All money raised through the silent auction will go directly to Access Fund's efforts to keep climbing areas open and conserve the climbing environment in the Northeast and across the United States.
