The Trail des Neige Vélo-Café presented by Vaude is back on March 19th 2016.

Since 5 years, some people crazy about winter and mountain sports are meeting on Mount Orford to take the start of an unusual winter sport event.

The challenge of the Trail des Neiges is about climbing one or three summits, at night fall, from the bottom of the ski station of Mount Orford, then go down on ski tracks to pass the finish line.

All what you need is a good front light and to choose your locomotion mean: snowshowing, skiing or walking.

Registration are opened: http://www.enduranceaventure.com/index.php/fr/inscriptionfr/2012-05-31-17-40-27.
