Ski: the Kandahar is back in Chamonix

On 3rd and 4th February 2023, the world’s best skiers will be in Chamonix to participate in the Kandahar race for the alpine skiing world cup. Nearly 20,000 spectators are expected to attend this major sporting event.

They will set off on La Verte des Houches which is "green” only by name: lined with fir trees, this mythical piste in the Mont Blanc massif is a 3,343 metre “black” run with an elevation difference of 870 m. This highly technical piste is recognised as one of the most beautiful descents in the world.

Jackets for Ski Alpin Racing

As part of the partnership signed with Ski Alpin Racing, the Chamonix Sotheby’s International Realty team has gifted down gilets branded with the name of the agency and the club: to face the winter without fear of the cold!

Put in place during the autumn of 2021 for a period of three years, this partnership allows our agency to get involved in the life of the club and to share its members’ passion for mountain sports.

Committed to an eco-responsible approach, Ski Alpin Racing recently hosted a climate fresk workshop and has been organising “zero-carbon races” since 2021. The club, a true local institution which has 170 members, is shaping future champions.
