Good stuff looks great !
Good timing I shall post this in the winter forum in more detail. Its something that I have thought about a lot over the last season and at the moment have started to email round to get a feel for support and whether it would be something that people might be interested in.
I have thought we could do with an event in Scotland most likley in the Cairngorm area involving the three main components of an event ski up down and some sort of climb most likley and easy gully.
So how about it would people be interested in a ski mountaineering race in the Highlands next season.............??????
Several corrections made including Haute route record is now 20 hours 28 minutes
