The first EIGERTOUR Winteredition is already SOLD OUT!
The next development step of the already well known Eigertour is its Winter Edition. The combination of Skimountaineering with Paragliding opens a whole new type of race with a completely new dimension. Imagine kiting up th Aletschglacier with your paraglider and fly from Jungfraujoch over the Lake of Thun to skimo Niederhorn before moving back towards Grindelwald….
The Winter Edition starts with 15 teams of 2 very experienced Mountaineering Athletes on February 18th 2022 in Grindelwald and ends on February 20th in the same place. The race route to take will strongly depend on the snow and wheather situation. Every evening the time needed for the given daily route will be taken for every team and added up on the last day to evaulate the winning team. The overnight stay including two meals is provided by the Eigertour organization so the athletes do not have to worry about where to stay at night.
We hope for good wheather and a low avalanche risk to explore the very high alpine scenery around the Eiger. In case of high avalanche risk or low cloud base, the Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen valley will provide us a safe playground to experience the Skimo / Paragliding combination and finish our days happily and tired.
The cost including half-pension is of 410 Swiss Francs per athlete.
The selection of the athletes will be based on their experience in snow and high-alpine mountaineering as well as their flying skills. Looking forward for the next step of Eigertour.
