Tue 10 January 12
There is about a week left until we do the draw to see who will join TeamWSG on the Everest Challenge in Morzine, 26th-29th January. Donate now and have a chance to join us!
If you fancy the challenge of skiing or snowboarding a total of 150km in 48 hours, including a night ski session and a night mountain hike - then the Snow-camp Everest Challenge is for you!
Team WSG is currently 2 people short of putting a team together and we need your help. Head to our donations page and make a donation of any size, and snow-camp boss Dan will pick one person (+ friend) at random to join us in Morzine. Just visit and make a donation on our Just Giving web page
We will arrive in Morzine on the afternoon of Thursday 26th January 2012 and begin the Challenge that same evening, tackling the first 20 km during the night ski session. The following two days we ski from dawn till dusk attempting to put a further 125km on the clock - with a night hike on the Friday night completing the final 5km of the challenge. We'll return to London on Sunday 29th January 2012 having successfully completed the Challenge.
During the weekend we'll visit many of the resorts that make up the huge www.portesdusoleil.com area from our base in Morzine including Avoriaz and its amazing halfpipe and Stash park, old Les Gets as well as nip over to Switzerland and check out some of the other resorts that make up the largest linked area in the World.
We'll cover your flights, accommodation, transfers, lift passes and pretty much everything except your food and bar tab. You don't have to be an amazing snowboarder - if you can get down a red-piste then you'll be fine, and we have guides and GPS tracking devices making sure everyone is safe.
