Experienced skiers who want to put their skills to the test are being sought by Austrian based ski specialists, Redpoint ( As part of their 15th anniversary celebrations, the independent company will be running a special ski challenge in the Ziller Valley, attempting to ski all the runs in the valley, over 600km’s worth, in just six days.

Whilst anyone is welcome to take part in the event, organiser Greg Moffatt of Redpoint points out that the week is designed to encourage practised skiers to challenge their capabilities. “Advanced skiers can often plateau or feel that they lack a degree of challenge, so we developed the Redpoint Challenge especially for them,” comments Greg. “We wanted to it make tough, but enjoyable.”
