Returning to Morzine for it’s 7th year, the Snow-Camp Alpine Challenge is one of our favourite events of the winter. Teams of 4 complete a two day ski or snowboard around the Portes du Soleil, covering a distance of over 150km and passing a collection of GPS checkpoints along the way. The team that clocks up the most KM during the event while visiting the most checkpoints will take the winners crown (and bragging rights) home with them.
The Alpine Challenge raises important funds for youth charity Snow-Camp, which introduces inner-city youngsters from tough backgrounds to the world of winter sports. Over the years Snow-Camp have made a huge difference to the lives of thousands of kids, providing them with youth training and vocational programmes which really have changed lives.
The challenge itself is a whole heap of fun, giving you the chance to discover the far-fling pistes of the Portes du Soleil while navigating your way between checkpoints. The 2016 challenge is in January (14th – 17th), when conditions across the whole area are usually perfect!
