Escapade in a Day - The New Record Holders
Hiking out of the 4th Valley helps... 6 Hours, 23 Minutes!
24 January 2008
Nick Nick Ski, Ferg Ski Deep, Joey Nick Ski, Jenna (Come Ski) and Mick (Alpine Escape)
Back in the Ski Lodge for 15:30 - Not even Happy Hour yet... Well done all!
Times of the Escapade check points - we update live 'cos we could!
09:07 La Tania Gondola
09:36 La Dent de Burgin (fortunately the Boulevard de la Loze towards Méribel was open first thing)
10:25 St Martin 1
10:48 Roc de Tougne
11:20 Masse 2 - and now the Lac de Lou off piste run down towards Val Thorens
11:43 Plan de l'Eau
12:42 Bouchet - and now the secret plan, a hike up and over to the Col
14:11 On Pas du Lac lift heading for 1650 - they're getting tired, not sure of what lift they're on...
15:10 Tovets - the 14 check points completed, just the dash back to the pub (before Happy Hour!)
15:30 Ski Lodge - Finished! Time for a well earned beer...
The only "live" pic we received. Possibly on Pas du Lac gondola out of Mottaret up to the Saulire summit.
This is one of the few decent length breaks where you can sit down with the skis off!
Looking surprisingly well though... - knew they should have done Mont Vallon as well!
