This coming WE, 120 international champions will climb 1600M on cross country skis, around mighty Gavarnie. This is the second of five events making the 2011 Ski-Mounteneering World Cup. The Derby 3000, is now 20 years old. This is happening around the Unesco World Heritage listed Cirque de Gavarnie.
Be aware that the first few "spectators" making it to the top of the Col des Gardes, will receive a present from the organizing commitee. (Not an easy task!). A couple of the competitors are staying in Luz, but there is still some space at our place.
