What is Alpen?

Alpenist: Noun

An alpenist is someone who lives for exploring the mountains, the lakes and landscape of the alpine landscape. Someone who relishes in the rich culture of our natural communities, leads an active lifestyle year round and champions the conservancy of the natural world. Whether its skiing, cycling, running, or hiking, the alpenist seizes every opportunity for adventure. We are alpenists! Together we define alpine culture!

Some communities have mountains that seem to reach the sky, where others don't seem "Alpine" at all. We love them all! If you see snow in winter, you're an Alpenist.

Crafted in Idaho, Wisconsin and Colorado, Alpen started as a small foot hill of ideas and has now turned into a snowcapped platform to help mountain resorts increase the safety and incident response time for alpen adventurers.

Our mission is to build the world's best resource for outdoor safety response and activity, gain knowledge, get inspired, and be connected with one another.
