The ’12 hours Head NonStop’, the toughest test in skiing, arrives in the Sierra Nevada
The Sierra Nevada resort will host this Saturday the event in which the participants, in individual category or teams, face a huge challenge from 9.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m.
Sierra Nevada welcomes this Saturday, January 26 the “12 hours Head NonStop”, a test of endurance of the harshest of alpine skiing, in which, in individual participants or teams of 2 or 3 members, must keep on skiing uninterruptedly from 9 in the morning until 9 p.m. (this reminds me to the 24 hours of Aspen that were for teams of 2 but skiing all day and all night…24 hours, with time only to breathe on the gondola!)
The skier or team that makes the greatest number of descents in the circuit designed for the competition will be the winner of the second edition of a competition. Last year the winner was the local runner Tato Peinado.
The “12 hours Head NonStop” of Sierra Nevada will take place this Saturday at the Peñones and Perdiz (Borreguiles) tracks, during the day, and on the Maribel track, during the night. The tent for relays and logistics will be installed in the Nevasol restaurant.
The test is conceived as a physical and mental challenge for runners, who must show their skills with their skis, as well as know when to relieve themselves, refresh themselves and rest.
