It's always exciting when a new ski lift opens in the Alps - after all, these engineering masterpieces play an important part in our favourite downhill sports. We're pretty sure skiing and snowboarding wouldn't be nearly as much fun if you had to spend half a day trudging up a mountain with your gear in tow.
If you're heading to the French Alps, you might not expect to find a celebration of British culture, but that's exactly what Les Arcs is planning at the end of March.
The famous ski resort is hosting a new festival called the Great British Celebration from March 27th to 30th. The four-day event will include various activities, music, food, parties and special offers.
Have you ever wondered how people practice big air jumps over and over again, without getting injured or even sore? After all, the most important rule to remember for anyone who does aeronautic manoeuvres in the snow is also one of the most simple: what goes up must come down. Gravity isn't really our friend when we're learning to jump, and those tough landings can't always be on fluffy white powder.
Holidays in the Alps tend to focus on adrenaline-fuelled sports like skiing and snowboarding. But if you're headed to the mountains over Valentine's Day, then you might just want to plan some time to enjoy the more romantic aspects of the beautiful setting.
It wasn't long ago that the only way to plan out a ski route was to sit down with a big paper map and trace your finger along the trails, finding an option that seemed good.
