The January 2017 UIAA Newsletter is now available.

The 2017 UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup season concluded in Rabenstein, Italy last weekend. Champagny-en-Vanoise, France hosts the pinnacle event of the season – the UIAA Ice Climbing World Championships – from 4-5 February. A fitting end to a season which has witnessed record viewing figures for the sport. This month we profile the pioneering work of the Chinese Mountaineering Association (CMA) from their commitment to mountain safety to promotion of youth participation. Equipment manufacturers will be able to meet the UIAA Safety Label team at ISPO Munich next week. Canada announces its first Climbing Medicine Symposium and the UIAA Mountain Protection Commission President Dr Carolina Adler is announced as the new Executive Director of the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI).
