Big Mountain Battle!
Coming straight from The States, Les Gets hosts the European leg of the Big Mountain Battle at the end of January and the beginning of February. Want to get involved?
The Big Mountain Battle is a team based event and is open to skiers and snowboarders of all ages and levels. It is a battle though... each team of 2 people must cover the entire mountain, passing checkpoints at lift stations, runs through the resort and hike around the mountain within 3 hours! Each team is given a course map and a team card and will be tracked by GPS - so no cheating! The top three teams with the best times across the circuit win!
There are 4 Big Mountain Battle events taking place in Les Gets this winter:
Saturday 21st January 2012 - The Igloo Battle
Saturday 28th January 2012 - The Ba Bar Battle
Saturday 4th February 2012 - The Zebra 3 Battle
Saturday 11th February 2012 - The Bowling Battle
It costs €10 per person / €20 per team to enter each or €30 per person / €60 per team if you'd like to compete in all 4 events.
HOWEVER! Courtesy of the lovely people at the Les Gets Office de Tourisme, Yodel has 2 team registrations to give away! All you need to do is answer this simple question - the first two entries win and get to become the official Yodel teams for the first ever Les Gets Big Mountain Battle!
At what time does battle commence on each of the dates above?
