TRIFACE is a ski touring race for amateurs and athletes alike, with its "Competition" and "Leisure" versions: timed/ranked or timed/unranked, and its "stop or keep going" format. TRIFACE proposes a sequence of 3 circuits that correspond to the ascent of 3 peaks around Plagne Centre: Grande Rochette, Verdons and Bécoin. If you are tired at the end of the first circuit, don't worry: stop and have a hot drink at the base camp in Plagne Centre and you will still be ranked! The more persistent can try to complete the 3 circuits and be among the finishers!
If you want to enjoy this new experience with your family or friends, you can opt to race in teams of 3, encourage your teammates and be on the podium!
Your accompanying team can come and support their friends and family while enjoying a magnificent sunset in flamboyant colours.

The Grande Plagne Tourist Office will be working with the fire service during this event and a part of the registration fees will be given to the Pupilles Orphelins charity.
