Kilian Jornet Ends Season with Switzerland Win

Suunto athlete Kilian Jornet ended his ski mountaineering season with a victory in Switzerland at his second Patrouille Des Glaciers with team Bon Mardion and Matheo Jacquemot last weekend. The race starts in Zermat and concludes in Verbier, covering more than 4,000 meters altitude difference. Though the Swiss team started off in the lead, Jornet and his team launched their attack and pulled ahead halfway up through the first ascent. Jornet’s team was in the lead when the race had to be cut short due to avalanche danger. He has also won races Pierra Menta and Mezzalama, a feat only three other men have ever achieved.
