Ian, Alex and Rob post an excellent time - 17 Jan 2008

"Unfortunately we then stopped recording as we thought we had finished. We continued up via plantrey to bouc blanc for very quick vin chaud then we got to our chalet in la tania for just after 4. Our gps got switched off at 1619 at intersport.
Would have been quicker if... we had realised u didn't have to actually go up the lift where check point was (only really relevant at granges), also deep un-pisted snow hindered the first few runs.
And, of course, we were not crazy enough (nor knowledgeable enough) to go off the back of sommets des pistes across to col - I cannot believe they did that! " - Rob
Lunch on the La Masse Gondola
This hat must have slowed them down...
Texting the missus - we're going to make it...
