MAMMUT® presents: the biggest peak project in history - PHASE 2 "The Zuitas™" team is now complete!

Image
Thanks to your essential support, the team is now complete! From this moment we just need to wait and try to convince the Mammut's panel of experts until the selection will be over. The tours will be selected one after the other up until September 2011. There is therefore no set deadline. As soon as the jury decides in favour of a tour, the status of the team changes to "Selected".
Thank you all for the support and now...finger crossed for the final PHASE 3! You can take a look at our team page by clicking HERE: you will find a detailed tour description and the profiles of the team members.

Omni-Lite's track spikes are standard features in the track shoes designed and manufactured by the world's leading athletic shoe manufacturers including Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Puma, and New Balance. Omni-Lite's space-age ceramic track spikes were utilized by athletes who won over 40 gold medals in the summer Olympics…

"The Zuitas™" passed the first selection!
The first selection has come to an end, the teamleaders are decided and the teams are going to be built! We passed to the phase 2 creating a team called "The Zuitas™", whose logo is the charming owl representing Mount Civetta, the target of our trip.

Our virtual mountain has been selected between more than 2000 other projects and we are now in the first 300 supported teams (3rd most supported team in Italy!). Here comes the description of the trip we proposed to the jury, hoping to enter the final stage and becoming part of the 150 teams that will take part in the biggest peak project history!

Between 4th and 5th August, 1931, Emilio Comici and Giulio Benedetti opened this extremely beautiful and intelligent line to Cima Civetta. For the 80th anniversary of the climb, our team is going to celebrate the event with a double ascent: an expert team of three people (one or two of them are Alpin Guides)…
