George Sanderson – New 2017 Escapade in a Day Completed

Most likely a new record time (bit it’s NOT a race!!!) – George managed it in 6 hours 17 minutes and reckons he could crack 6 hours easily in good conditions (and on a Saturday of course!).

Plan de l’eau, La Masse and across Lac de Lou were particular bad (should be ok now with the recent snow!) and he chose to do all of the Les Menuires lifts in one go instead of coming back after Val Thorens. Probably a good idea – there is no set route, you choose…

George is usually off Couloir Hunting and triggering avalanches – see below…

The 3 Valleys Escapade in a Day is our challenge of doing the Escapade Lifts (see them on the piste map) in a single, full on day out with around 34 lifts, 17000m of vertical (around twice the height of Everest) and near to 100km in total distance. You can get a certificate and badge no matter how long you take, or try the Selfies in a Day for an easier day out across The 3 Valleys with some great “selfie” footage uploaded to your phone.
