 We had a great day out in les Marecottes checking out the course for the upcoming Alpiniski world cup ski race. For anyone who thinks ski racing is all about sprinting up hill, this course has some proper downhill too! After the long boot up the la Golette gully...

the course climb steeply halfway up the Point des Perrons...

before a great ski down to the dam.

Skins back on for the climb back to la Golette, with a quick boot past the arsenic mine (!) Skiing down la Golette is steep and the descent carries on with technical skiing under the lift line before a final boot and steep descent to the finish. Great as a day tour, pretty tough as a race.
