2016 Athlete Tour

10 cities. 10 days. Thousands of people, and one Swiss Machine. The AAC's National Tour with Ueli Steck was a huge success!

Didn't make it to a show? Here's what you missed.

The AAC partnered with Alpina Watches to bring Ueli 'The Swiss Machine' Steck to 10 cities across the country. Ueli presented a visually stunning and interactive slideshow about his experiences climbing the world's largest mountains, setting speed records without oxygen, his daring 82 Summits Challenge and recent trip to the Himalaya.
