LONDON, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading car hire comparator Carrentals.co.uk has announced it will be supporting the Ski 4 Cancer charity on its latest fundraising scheme in France. Ski 4 Cancer will be staging a charity challenge in La Tania on the 20th and 21st of March, in which entrants attempt to ski either the vertical height of Mont Blanc (4807 metres) or Everest (8848 metres) in just one day.
The challenge will focus on the green, blue or red pistes, which run adjacent to La Tania's main gondola, dropping from a height of 1900 metres to 1368 metres. With a vertical drop of 532 metres, skiers will need to complete 9 runs to ski the height of Mont Blanc and 17 runs to descend the equivalent height of Everest, dependent on their ski experience and ability.
