CANCELLED ASC Ski Mountaineering Lecture - Spring 2020
Trans Pyrenees Ski Touring Epic
by David Hamilton
|Owing to the current restrictions on public meetings, the ASC Spring Lecture 2020 is cancelled.|
|In an era of unprecedented climate change is there enough snow cover in the Pyrenees for a full winter ski mountaineering traverse?|
David together with Steve Kentish set out from Banyuls on the Mediterranean coast in mid January. They aim to be the first UK skiers to complete a full coast to coast traverse in a single winter.
By March 4th they had completed 70% of the route (37 stages in 45 days) and were waiting in Cauterets for a bad weather system to pass before continuing.
They hope to complete the trip and return to the UK by the end of March.
|In the meanwhile, follow them on their journey …|
|Come along to the Alpine Club on 13th May and share in the experiences of these intrepid ski tourers. Take the opportunity to meet with like-minded individuals and compare notes of your ski touring activities this season.|
