I seemed to have overlooked something…
The classic circuit is a tour of the Portes du Soleil, about 80 km / 50 miles
Approximately 80 km / 50 milles – 14 ski-lifts – 7000m of total downhill
9 different resorts to start from:
– In France: Avoriaz, Châtel, Les Gets, Morzine and Montriond-Les Lindarets.
– In Switzerland: Champéry, Morgins, Torgon and Les Crosets.
1000 m of total uphill climb
Did you notice? Want me to share? 1000m of total uphill climb! And that was no lie or typo. This years PPdS was tough for us enduro downhill types. We finished, barely, the full lap and crossed the line at the closing hour, overheated (30º +) and exhausted. But we made it!
