If you're headed to France for a fun-filled getaway in the snow, you probably want to spend most of your time out on the pistes - not stomping around from one place to another in your clunky ski boots. Let's face it, it doesn't matter if you've found ski boot hire with the most comfortable footwear imaginable: ski boots just aren't made for walking around.
With their high altitude and chilly winters, it's no wonder that the Alps are best known for their snow and icy conditions. And that's why they're such popular destinations for skiers and snowboarders in the winter months. But what if we told you that you could enjoy a balmy, rainforest-like atmosphere on your next visit to Avoriaz?
In fact, some 15,000 people are expected to descend upon Morzine on July 10th for a very special cycling event. Not all of those in attendance will be riding in the Etape du Tour, but cheering on those who are undertaking the challenge.
The reason that the Etape is so popular is that it is held over the same course used by professional cyclists when the Tour de France comes to town. Just two weeks after the Etape takes place, the likes of Mark Cavendish and Chris Froome will be completing the same course as the penultimate stage in the Tour.
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.
