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.
You'll be able to take part in the nighttime skiing events in Avoriaz on these dates between 7.30pm and 9.30pm each evening at the Linga ski area. What's even better is that the resort will be playing music, so you can dance your way down the slope as you practise your skiing moves.
This is a free event that you should definitely take advantage of if you are travelling with children as it's a good way for them to gain extra confidence and experience on the pistes. Anyone can take part in these ski slots, which are open air so you'll be able to see some beautiful views across the whole of the resort area.
You have to consider travel for the trip: would it be easier to fly straight to a resort? Or perhaps get the ferry and drive the rest of the way? And of course there's all that gear to think about, most of which you can hire at a resort, but you'll still need all the right clothes and accessories before you leave for your trip.
With that in mind, you'll want an accommodation that's going to be suitable for the whole family, something that has plenty of room and all the amenities that are required, particularly if you are travelling with little ones. Thinking on this, one of the best types of accommodation for you and your family might be an apartment.
The Rock on Snowboard Tour is a festival of events that brings together all things snow-related and if you're a regular snowboarding enthusiast, you are sure to love it. One of the best things about this tour is that a host of the best snowboard brands exhibit at this festival, bringing along all of their latest equipment that you can try out on the slopes - for free!
All of the brands will have representatives there, who you can ask for advice to make sure that you're suitably ready for the season. You'll find the brands in the huge test village, which will be easy to locate as each year the area features at least 50 exhibitors including 77 Customs, Roxy Snowboards, Santa Cruz, Oakley and DC, so you'll be spoilt for choice.
