This winter for the 6th year running, Valmorel will welcome the ‘Tournoi des 6 stations’ (or six resorts rugby tournament) for a day of rugby and skiing fun on 14th February 2018. There will be lots of fun on the day including snow rugby taster sessions and the chance to watch some ex-professional international rugby players in action.
2. The Spartan Race
That is the Reebok Spartan Race is a crazy extreme obstacle course on snow, taking place on the 27th-28th January 2018. Valmorel has been chosen as a venue as much for its accessibility as for its ski area, which as variety of different terrains. The motto of this timed obstacle race is 'unstoppable' - see competitors run, jump, climb and swim, and if they don’t get over any of the obstacles there’s a 30 burpee penalty each time they miss one! There's also the ‘Winter Sprint’ which is a 6km course with over 20 obstacles, and the 'Winter Super' which is over 13km with 25 obstacles. Watch the fun or dare to take part yourself (register here)!
3. Shiver Me Timbers (literally)!
Valmorel has expanded its pirate adventure zone for this season. As well as skiing fun in the pirate-themed area, non-skiers will also find plenty to play on. Every Wednesday in the school holidays there’s a treasure hunt, while on Sundays in the school holidays, children can take 'The Pirate Challenge'.
The resort also has three great sledging slopes.
