l’odyssée : race of all the challenges
La Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont Blanc is one of the few playgrounds where mushers can enjoy the beauty that is found in this snow capped mountain paradise. It also the story of a dream. The dream of a great adventure that would cross the Alpine peaks while the standard of the sleddog sport for decades, was to run on frozen grounds with little relief.
Beyond the sporting competition, while in the Great North snowmobiles have replaced snow sleds, La Grande Odyssée gets back in touch with the adventure with a capital A and promotes a certain vision of sport, nature and respect for the environment.
