Your Winter Agenda 2019

bt1 bt3

Why not make your luxury ski holiday particularly special this year by planning your trip around one of these top must see events in the Alps for 2019?

 

Watch the mountains come to life with music festivals featuring top artists or with thousands congregating to witness skiing legends compete for the top spot in world-renowned competitions.

 

Maybe you want to enter into a competition yourself and test out your skills or perhaps you prefer to sit back, relax and watch the pros while you enjoy a glass of wine, live music and beautiful scenery.

 

We’ve chosen six must see events suitable for the whole family.

 

Here is your winter agenda…

 

Festi Light | 31 December and more

 

On New Year’s Eve and every Thursday from 10 January – 7 March the heart of Val d’Isere is illuminated by hundreds of lights and festivities. The main street is transformed into a winter wonderland with a snow-covered pedestrian zone adorned with twinkling lights, jugglers, musicians and ice sculptures.

3 Valleys Enduro | 7 April 2019

 

For the past fifteen years, 1,500 skiers have come together for one of the world’s largest gatherings of amateur riders. Contenders compete in one of three categories (pros, amateurs and families) in a range of challenges and events from freeride, freestyle and biathlon to the Family Schuss and Fight Ski Club.

 

The aim of the day is to get skiers out on the slopes, discovering the world’s largest ski area in a fun and unique way… so don’t be afraid to get involved!

Ski Colour, Les Gets | March (Date TBA) 2019

 

What could be better than skiing down a 2.5 km slope in Les Gets whilst being immersed in explosions of coloured paint? Participants pass through four different colour zones (Orange, green, pink and blue). But don’t worry about ruining your brand new ski gear – participants are each given a protective white suit and hat.

 

In addition to colour explosions, the event includes workshops for children, exhibitions, a concert facing Mont Blanc and much more.

Live in Tignes by Francofolies | 16 – 18 April 2019

 

Enjoy three days of free concerts in Tignes, in the heart of the resort and on the slopes. The idea of the festival is to encourage skiers to come and appreciate the mountains towards the end of the season and enjoy the sun and slopes at 2100m altitude.

 

Spend your mornings exploring the vast Tignes-Val d’Isere ski area before tuning into the festival after lunch and into the evening. Concluding a day on the slopes with live music whilst the sun sets behind the mountains is one of the best experiences for any skier or snowboarder, creating an ambiance like no other.
