New records have been registered at the MCST!

For this fifth round of the Millet Courchevel Ski Touring, Gary Ozeray and Corinne Favre have registered new records!

This sixth season, Millet Courchevel Ski Touring (MCST) is well and truly launched. Since last week the snow is at the rendez-vous and for this fifth round of the MCST a snowcat has groomed the two days accumulated snow on the course a few minutes before the race kickoff. A real treat for the 110 participants who were able to perform on a velvet carpet this rise of 3.2km in ski touring with 500m of elevation gain between Le Praz and Courchevel 1850. As every Wednesday, the skiers estimate their Rise Time during their prior registrations. The slower people start first and the fastest go last to allow beginners to not end up back of the pack and can sometimes arrive before the elites!

In 2012, Courchevel is the first French ski station to have created and marked a groomed and secured ski mountaineering route.
