On the Mountain
Ski Connections can organise a wide range of activities on the mountain, all are fun even when they are educational too.
Explore the quieter parts of the mountain on snowshoes either during the day or early evening as the sun goes down. Learn about how the people of the valley used to live and how the fauna and flora have adapted to the harsh mountain environment.
The best places for sledging are on the Mickey slope (Villeneuve) and the bottom of Monetier. Markers are provided by Ski Connections to mark out a safe area.
Deval Bob for 12yrs and over – Night time sledging run with 573m vertical descent, over 4km long with 26 bends.
Either timed or dual team slaloms. Ski connections can organise training and races.
For older groups of 14 yrs and up you can explore another side of the mountain. In small groups we introduce you to a wilder part of the mountain.
Taster sessions can be organised for either snowboarding or telemarking.

Unique in a European ski resort Briançon is a world heritage site. This medieval walled city is great to visit not only for shopping, but to bring history alive.
For fans of the industrial revolution you can visit ‘Longo Mai’ in Chantemerle. Here they spin and weave their own wool from their own sheep. Every Autumn they herd the flocks to Provence to winter out the cold months.
