Ski mountaineers won't want to miss the weekly nighttime ski touring event organised by Millet and Courchevel Tourist Office.
Ski mountaineers - don’t miss the 2020 10th anniversary edition of the Millet Ski Touring® Courchevel! Put your touring skis on and meet in front of the Tourist Office in Le Praz at 18:20 for a 3.2km timed uphill race with a 500 vertical meter altitude difference, before arriving in front of La Croisette Courchevel 1850.
Every Wednesday, between 25th December 2019 and 11th March 2020 (and Friday 17th Jan for the "Chrono des Champions"), the very best ski tourers will battle it out for the record of the season, culminating in the grand fancy dress finale on 18th March and an exceptional concert by French singing sensation Shy'm!
Ski touring fans will have 14 opportunities to tackle the route by torchlight, in an exceptional setting on a Vertical Race course which hosted the French Championships in 2012/13 and the World Cup in 2014.

Can you beat them?
