Polartec Accepting Challenge Grant Applications


Polartec is now accepting applications for their 2012 Challenge Grant program, which strives to encourage low-impact adventures around the globe. The organization is looking for worthy adventurers who display a respect for the cultures and environments that they visit, while also serving as an inspiration and role model for other outdoor enthusiasts.

Past winners of the Challenge Grants include Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, Steve House, and many more. Polartec has supported these adventurers as they have traveled the globe exploring new places, making first ascents, and pushing the envelope in terms of what can be accomplished.
