If you are going skiing in January then you are very lucky but if you are wondering what to do when you are not skiing or eating then you will find this guide useful. If you are one of the minority of people that are going on a ski holiday but won’t be skiing then you will find this guide really useful.
Crazy box – 9th January – La Tania
We do not know what this is but it is on in La Tania at the tourist office at 5pm. If someone can find out what it is then please let us know. Maybe we will see you there
Street Party – 10th January – Meribel
Honestly, we are not 100% sure what to expect from this event organised by the Meribel Tourist Office. There will be some music and free hot drinks and it will be outside the Meribel tourist office. That is as much as we know. It could be amazing or it could be a bit disappointing. Either way pop along and have a look. There is several great pubs nearby.
World Snow Day – 19th January – The World
When we started compiling this what’s on guide we wondered why so much was taking place on the 19th of January then we got our answer, it is World Snow Day. It is organised by the FIS to promote erm… skiing mainly. There is a Fête du Ski in Courchevel where you can take part in a Giant Slalom amongst other things.
Ski Test Tour – 19th – 22nd January – Meribel
This is not a competition despite the confusing title. It is actually a chance to test ride brand new skis, for free! There will be the chance to try all the latest K2’s, Dynastars, Heads and more. For a ful list of the skis you can try out go to http://www.sportair.fr/en_sport-test-ski_index.php. Just pop down to the Chaudanne and try before you request next year’s Christmas present.
Subaru Biathlon Challenge FFS – 19th – 20th January – Courchevel
You may have seen this when watching the winter Olympics. What is more likely is that you will have watched hours of this when you have stayed in some accommodation in Europe and your only choice of English channel is Eurosport, who only seem to show Winter Biathlon on a loop. A quick note – all Alpine Action Chalets have UK freeview. Anyway if you are staying in the Three Valleys on these dates then you can watch it live at the Courchevel Altiport, which is odd as we thought guns and planes don’t mix.
