I’ll be honest: after my not-so-rave review about Mammut’s Refine Skort for lady climbers was published on The Gearcaster, I figured my relationship with this premiere brand was surely demolished. I nervously sent them the link to my review, and much to my surprise, they actually thanked me for my honest feedback – and the skort has since been pulled from their product line due to a much stronger response to their Realization Shorts. That, right there, is what I love about the outdoor industry.
But Mammut‘s excellence doesn’t stop there. This week, they offered to give readers of The Morning Fresh a chance to win one of four copies of their limited edition 2013 Deja Vu calendar, featuring stunning photography by Stefan Schlumpf. Twelve of their pro team climbers (like Sean McColl and Anna Stöhr) and mountaineers were posed in some truly creative abstract climbing scenes, including a bubble bath of chalk balls, a sultry spine lined with bolts, and a throne of ice axes.
For a look at the making of the calendar, give this sweet behind-the-scenes video a gander. Talk about a production – according to this article, the shoot required “500 cable binders, 160 ice picks, 400 chalk balls, 2,500 metres of rope, several cubic metres of wood and countless screws.“

So how can you win a copy of this phenomenal calendar?
All you have to do is leave a comment telling us what adventure you are most looking forward to in 2013! From climbing your first 14er in Colorado (which is totally on my 2013 to-do list) to graduating college, it’s all about your personal journey – and we’d love to supply you with a sweet calendar to help you countdown the days to your next epic adventure.
The giveaway is open to entries until Friday, December 14, 2012 at 11:59 PM. I’ll pick four winners at random, and announce them here on the blog and on The Morning Fresh facebook page – so keep an eye out for your chance to win!
Good luck, everyone – and a big thanks to Mammut for making this happen!
UPDATE / WINNERS:
With over 100 entries, and an impressive ticklist of 2013 climbing goals, travel plans, and epic life accomplishments, it was pretty inspiring to see what everyone has lined up for the new year – but there could only be four winners.
