Three internationally recognized American mountaineering legends—Melissa Arnot, Ed Viesturs and Peter Whittaker—will share some cliffhanger climbing stories Thursday during “An Elevated Evening Around the World” hosted by Zenergy Health Club & Spa.
The event will take place at 7 p.m. at the Community School Theater in Sun Valley. General admission is $15. For $25 (including admission), attendees get access to a meet-and-greet with the climbers before the talk. The meet-and-greet begins at 5:30 p.m. and the doors open for general admission at 6:30 p.m.
Arnot is the only woman who has summited Mount Everest—the world’s highest mountain—four times. Viesturs is America’s leading high-altitude climber and has climbed all 14 of the world’s 8,000-meter (26,247 feet and over) peaks without supplemental oxygen. Whittaker has climbed all of the Seven Summits, the tallest mountains on each of the seven continents. The three mountaineers, who also work as guides on Mount Rainier, have summited the 14,411-foot mountain a combined total of more than 500 times.
An event announcement states that the three climbers will share their “experiences,” “passions” and “the thrill of their greatest accomplishments” with the event’s attendees. Tickets are available at Zenergy in Ketchum, The Elephant’s Perch sports shop in Ketchum or online at www.zenergyts.com. For more information, call Zenergy at 725-0595.
