Brace yourself New Zealand, we've just had a mini French invasion! Théo, Olivier, Antoine and Maël from Grenoble, France touch down in NZ on Saturday with some big goal's during their 2 month stay in NZ. The 4 young (19-21yrs) Frenchmen are calling their trip "All 3000m", pretty self explanatory I think.................. The Dynafit co-sponsored team is heading down towards Ohau today and are planning on racing at the Ohau Backcountry Blast this weekend and then will head towards Mt Cook to begin their project! Check out their blog- http://www.all3000m.over-blog.com/
"The skier who forsakes the lifts to climb under his own power to a mountain summit is a very different person from the downhill only piste basher and is often regarded by the latter as something of a curiosity.
But he was the creator of the sport; and possibly with him lies the future"
-Robin Fedden, The book of Europen Skiing, 1966
