The 6th edition of the TERNUA ALTITOY OPEN in Altitoy 2013 will take place on the 2nd and 3rd of February. Once again, we intend to surprise you with new itineraries and technical tracks, including ridges and steep corridors. All members of the team are working flat out to ensure that Altitoy remains the leading benchmark of ski mountaineering in the Pyrenees. This year, the finish line is placed at the astronomical centre Pic de Midi in Bigorre at 2,877 metres. It will be an ascent to the finish, up this main landmark of the Midi Pyrenees region, holding one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Pyrenees. www.picdumidi.com The press and general public will be allowed access to the finish line. Each competitor will be given a plus-one for the cable car ride up to the Pic de Midi. We are hoping for a big turnout as this promises to be a spectacular finish. This year 2013, the race promises to be more demanding than ever before, Saturdays leg will include an ascent to more than 2,500 metres altitude and Sunday up to 2,000 metres. Track B will also be more challenging with ascents to around 1,500 metres on Saturday and Sunday. Both tracks are to be completed in teams of skiers. The latest addition to this year’s 2013 race is that the Altitoy Open will form part of the Grande Course, a challenge that brings together the most important alpine ski races in the world. www.grandecourse.com

Kilian Jornet Mountain skiing has been centralized in the Pyrenees for many years now but never before have the routes been quite so marked out. Both our younger and older skiers have never before been able to relax and reflect without having to look to l’ArècheBeaufort. From this, Altitoy was born. Like a spark in a dry wheat field, from the fire ablaze in the hearts of Pyrenean mountain skiers grew an authentic race, with alpine tracks, unsurpassable surroundings and a perfect organization. In the two events that I have participated in, I was able to view the warmth of the town, the environment and the fraternity of a doubles stage race. Thank you for giving us the opportunity of taking part in this magnificent race and good luck for the future, Yours faithfully, Kilian Jornet.
