The Big Ride

Rope skiing by night


Thursday evening 7th February 2019

One thing many racers underestimate is the difficulty of skiing with ropes during the Patrouille des Glaciers. To be well prepared mountain guide and experienced Patrouille skier Bertrand Lovey will take us for a session of rope skiing by night in Bruson.

We will meet up at the lift station in Le Châble at 16h00 to take the last lift to Bruson*. During the training session we will focus on how to use ropes and how to ski in pairs. After the training we will join the weekly pizza/pasta evening at Restaurant Moay. If the snow conditions allow it then we will ski all the way down to Le Châble afterwards.

*For those participants without a seasonal lift pass of the Verbier region, there is also the possibility of driving up to La Côt and meet there.

CHF 120.- / pers.

Number of participants: min. 3, max. 8 people
