Cross country skiing and optional racing in the Gran Paradiso National Park
Need another stamp in your Euroloppet passport, or want to get started with this cross country ski race series? Or looking to ski in a new area of Italy? Plus enjoy five days coaching/instruction to help you make the most of the trip - Peter Moysey and Soren Milas are the confirmed coaches for the trip.
Join this Club trip to the beautiful area of Cogne in the Aosta valley and participate in the Marcia Gran Paradiso which takes you through the stunning landscapes of Gran Paradiso National Park. This is the Club's only ski trip with a race this season
You'll have time to explore the cross country ski area and the race course which loops around two or three valleys, according to the competition, and back to Cogne. The races will comprise either 25/45km free technique on Friday 3 February and 25/45km classic on Sunday 5 February. You choose which race[s] you enter or not - there’s no obligation to race and skiing supporters are very welcome.
NB This destination is not ideal for beginners as there are few flat ski areas. If you're a beginner the Club's Seefeld trip is recommended.
Our choice is the Hotel du Grand Paradis & Spa La Baita on a half board basis. It's centrally located and close to the ski tracks, offers free wifi, space for waxing skis and a heated ski room.
Fly to Geneva and take the group coach transfer to Cogne.
Please see the trip information document for full details.
NB All participants must be members of London Region Nordic Ski Club and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
