Areches, a small French village in the Rhône-Alpes, hosts the legendary Pierra Menta competition every year, becoming the world capital of ski mountaineering. This has been a cult event for this sport for over 30 years, one of those must-have events for enthusiasts. It features 10,000 metres of ascent height difference on the Grand Mont, spread across four days of races in pairs, with thousands of spectators at the check points and trails that wind up the French side of the Alps, on the border with Italy.
