  MARMOT RECEIVES AMGA INDUSTRY AWARD FOR SECOND YEAR


Marmot Mountain Ltd. is the 2004 recipient of the American Mountain Guides Association Industry Award. Marmot receives this award for the second year in a row. AMGA Executive Director Mike Alkaitis will present the Industry Award to Tom Fritz of Marmot at this year’s Summer Market Outdoor retailer Show in Salt Lake City on August 12, 2004.

The Industry Award is presented annually to the outdoor company that has shown outstanding support through scholarships, product, and sponsorships of professional American mountain guides in the past year. Marmot has partnered with the AMGA to provide product and educational support for the past eight years.

“We are deeply grateful to the AMGA for this award”, said Tom Fritz, VP Marketing for Marmot. “Any award from your peers is humbling, and we are grateful for any award we receive, but the AMGA Industry Award is especially important to us. For many years it has been our focused intention to support and further the professional interests of the American mountain guide community in any way we can. This second Industry Award means we continue to be effective in that effort. We will not let up in that effort.”

Mike Alkaitis, Executive Director of the AMGA, said, “I am excited the committee chose and I have the opportunity to present this Industry Award to Marmot for the second year for its consistent support and promotion of the profession of guiding and climbing in America. We appreciate Marmot for its exceptional partnership with the American Mountain Guides Association.”
