We were all ready to rock for the last day and were out of the hotel and at the base of the lifts by 8.30am. While having to put the clocks forward meant we had one less hour in bed, it did mean that a couple of special runs held better snow conditions for longer; this was ideal as it allowed us to crack a huge amount of feet early on. By the time both groups met for lunch we all basked in the sunshine and basked in the glory of having completed over 90,000 vertical feet in the 3 days.
The snow was good enough, while the weather was excellent – blue skies, beautiful sunshine and no wind; we simply could not have asked for more. In the end both groups managed to creep over the 100,000 vertical foot mark, which is an absolutely stunning achievement; it was hard, hard work. Special mention needs to go to Olly for her determination and sheer guts, and for which she receives the Monster Ski Coupe du Monde, and to Alice for being excellent support to Donna. Matt Subert wins for most footage completed, while Chloe wins the unofficial top speed prize for 66.2 mph.
Off now for a special celebration dinner and to toast the health of all those who have now been inducted to the Monster Ski Hall of Fame.
