Alpine Challenge 2013 Launch
Snow Camp's Alpine Challenge 2013 has now launched and once again will be held in Morzine.Yodel magazine in Morzine took us through what its all about-;
If you haven't heard of Snow Camp yet, it's an amazing charity that supports young people from the inner-city through a combination of skiing, snowboarding and life-skills programmes.
The Alpine Challenge helps to raise money for the Snow Camp charity with a two-day snowsports endurance challenge.
Previously known as The Everest Challenge, the event is now in its fourth year and going from strength to strength. Twenty-five teams of four riders must complete 150km of the Portes du Soleil during the two day event. The night between the 2 days must be spent completing a 10km hike. Whichever team clocks up the most miles, visits the most checkpoints and completes the overnight hike will win.
You can either enter a team of four into the competition or if there are less of you, Snow Camp will put you in touch with people who you could join to form a team.
