Torchlight Descent World Record

22nd February 2023

As holders of the torchlight descent world record with 2,887 skiers set in 2016, will we be able to beat our own record and consolidate our position? Several resorts in Austria, France and Italy have tried to break the record, but in vain.  

Usually reserved for ski instructors, this time the event is different! You are invited to take part in the entertainment of the holidays to beat the Torchlight Descent World Record. 

GET YOUR DIARIES OUT!

Meet on Wednesday 22 February at 5pm at the start of Vagère (Arc 1800). To participate, you must have a level equal to the 2nd star (basic turns on parallel skis, skidding on blue and red runs).
