3 peaks experience

simple question: anyone had, or know someone who has had, experience of ferrying pax between the notorious 3 peaks in one day? Ben Nevis, Ska Fell Pike and Snowdon. loads of planning and logistical challenges, but i figured someone out there may have already got the measure of it. Probably based somewhere north west. any takers?

I was in Glen-Nevis on holiday a few years ago when a group did the '4-Peaks' (which includes a big lump of rock in Ireland). I seem to recall they had 2 helicopters, and they landed (in a nicely mown and quite flat field)by the youth-hostel in Glen-Nevis. Most of the land there is owned by the proprietors of the camp-site / holiday lodges / restaurant in the Glen. It might be worth giving them a call.

I was part of a army time that did the 4 peaks for children in need in the mid 90`s. We had a RAF chinook for our taxi.
