La Tania regular Jack Bruce in World Record 8 Hour Ski Attempt Today
On Saturday 30th March 2019 Jack Bruce is attempting to set a new Guinness World Record (GWR) for the greatest distance skied in 8 hours. GWR measure such events in ‘vertical feet’ and although there is no current record they have set a ‘minimum requirement’ of 118,110 vertical feet. The equivalent of skiing down Mount Everest four times!
Jack learned to ski with the British Army in Cyprus and will be raising money for Walking with the Wounded. Always on first lift when he’s here – lookout for the distinctive Ruroc “Stormtrooper” Helmet…
The Foret chair was the original plan for the main uplift today but we understand Aiguile du Fruit and Creux is the likely majority of the skiing today.
Good luck to Jack and if you’d like to make a donation his JustGiving page is at: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/guinnessworldrecordski
