Photographer's Note

See the last pictures about this race if you want to know something else. Here we are the "Patrouille des Glaciers" in action, from Zermatt to Verbier. We are in one of the mainly control post of this ski alpinism race. We are at 2800m hight, under 0° (-14°).
The racers has began to ski late (or early, as you want to think). The first one has start at 22:00 pm, and has ski all night, make 30Km, passing over a summit at 3700m hight, with strong wind, and temperatures under -30°. Still they have to ski 28Km more or less, and pass over a summit at 3300m hight...crazyes?...it's up to you to think what you want, but in any way is incredible to see them pass. If you wants a challenge, you can begin with the little race..."only" 28Km with 1900m up rise, and a summit at 3300m.

***In this picture I have use a 1250 ISO, with a little flash, but not tripod.***
