Another Escapade in a Day Completed!

Congratulation to Tim Kirk who completed the Escapade in a day on 10 March 2017.

Tim’s first attempt was on 23 January 2016 but closures prevented a success. This year he followed Adrian Chaffey’s 2016 route with a few alterations to account for this years lift changes. Not a great day for it as there was lots of queues around Val Thorens and quite a few moguls but he made it back ok.

Col was closed so unfortunately Tim missed that but everything else was done. He made one slight change to the route and used Gros Murger to get out of the village at 9 then shot down to La Praz before Bouc Blanc opened and came back up on Foret which meant if he was a bit late back he only had to be on Aiguille du Fruit at 5 to do all the required lifts rather than in La Praz at 4.50 when Foret shuts.

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 too no matter how long you take or try the Selfies in a Day for an easier day out across The 3 Valleys.
