On Saturday 8th December, French ski resort Les Arcs invites skiers to enjoy the early season snow as part of a new initiative,
A week before the official opening of the resort, La Belle Aventure offers a day of ski touring when no lifts are open, to enjoy the new snow and the serenity of the mountains. It is a friendly day open to all levels – for free!
Skiers will start in Arc 2000 and in groups accompanied by mountain guides, steadily go up to either the Igloo Village or Col de la Chal. They will then descend and enjoy making first tracks in the Vallee de l’Arc before heading back down to enjoy lunch together. More details on lesarcs.com.
On the official Les Arcs website there is the chance to enter a competition to win a weekend in Les Arcs to participate in La Belle Aventure.
The prize is for two people and includes accommodation, transport, equipment, meals and of course the day ski touring as part of La Belle Aventure.
