Project 20 spots - 20 gondola

The idea is to ride 20 different trails at 20 different spots, while using 20 gondola at 20 villages in only one day. This is possible in the south-western part of Switzerland, in the upper-Wallis along the Rhône river. Early in the morning, I choose my first line down from the picturesque village of Bellwald and many hours later, just before sunset, the last downhill brings me from Vercorin to Chalais. Timing during the day was thight but my crew helped me to manage the time table! Doing a project in Switzerland allowed me for once to share my adventure with my family and friends, which is more difficult when I am at the other end of the world, on snowy volcanoes and in high altitudes.

 Would have been great to have a map showing what you've done for us to realize even more what kind of challenge it was! Cheers!

 Wow, 20 alpine trails at 20 stations close enough to achieve in one day. Probably the only time I have seen one of these vids and thought I may be living in the wrong place (I live in BC).
