Skis Rossignol S.A. is a French manufacturer of ski and snowboarding equipment used by snowsports aficionados all over the world. The brand is currently touring ski resorts all throughout Europe and it will be bringing its high quality and strong endurance range of outerwear and accessories to Alpe d'Huez.
This is going to be exciting for all of those who are dedicated to practising winter sports as you'll know how important it is to be kitted out with the proper gear, not only to stay warm but for your safety too. The Rossignol reps are going to be coming to the slopes of Alpe d'Huez on Wednesday 24th of February with stands showcasing all of their latest equipment and clothing for you to take your pick of what's fresh off the line.
For this reason, it usually means that you'll have to get up early, in order to beat the rest of the crowds and start the day the way you mean to continue. On Wednesday 10th February you can take part in The Early Ski in Val Thorens, an event that will see you at the top of the three valleys. It's one of the most beautiful views that you will come across in the area and it will remain virtually unspoiled until you hurtle down the hill.
You'll be able to join in the fun by meeting at 8am at the Funitel Peclet, from there you'll head up the mountain with the ski patrol and watch how the experts attend to the mountainside. The event is run by Magic in Motion and if you want to take part, you'll need to book ahead on the Magic Website as places are limited and it's an unsurprisingly popular activity.
Quite simply, snow biking is mountain biking on the snow: it sounds easy but it's quite an extreme snowsport and thrillseekers in particular will be big fans of this one! If you haven't tried it before there is a free snow biking trial at Le Plateau in Avoriaz on Sunday 31st January. The trial is at night, meaning that the pistes aren't just reserved for those on skis and snowboards! There are going to be 11 other free snow biking trials every Sunday until 17th April so there's plenty of chances for you to give snow biking a go.
As this is an evening event in the resort it takes place between 17:30 and midnight, which makes the activity exhilarating and slightly ethereal. As this is a taster trial session, just about anyone should be able to take part and you should expect nearly everyone there to be a beginner.
Head to this beautiful area of the Alps to enjoy empty slopes and the first bright rays of the sun with skiing experts. This event is headed up by a professional pisteur (someone who is knowledgeable about the ski pistes in the area) who will be able to tell you everything there is to know about the surrounding peaks and the Les Arcs area.
It's open to those who prefer to either ski or snowboard and you will accompany the pisteur down the mountain before the slopes are open to the public. To get the very best of the conditions, this event starts early in the morning and you'll meet the pisteur and other fresh snow enthusiasts at the Bois de L'Ours chairlift at 7:45am. There are several of these events throughout the season, with the next one beginning 4th February. It will then be on every Thursday until the 21st of April, so there are plenty of chances for you to take part in this unique experience.
Oxygene is one of the best ski and snowboard schools in the area and it guarantees excellent lessons from friendly and experienced instructors. Not only will they teach you the skills you need to be safe, but they'll also show you how to have fun on the pistes. This taster class on Friday 29th January is the perfect introduction to snowboarding, so get ready to jump into the exciting world of snowsports.
The school is affiliated with Burton snowboards, so you'll also be getting some of the best equipment in the world for you to start honing your skills.
