Alternative Events To Enjoy When Visiting Three Valleys
When planning a trip to the Three Valleys district of France, there is more to do than just hit the slopes. With everything from music festivals to motor racing. There’s something for everyone.
Andros Trophy Motor Racing Tour
A dream for any motor head. Enjoy the high octane thrills of watching performance rally cars duel it out, all to become this year’s Andros Trophy champion. Attracting many a celebrity, including big Formula One names such as Alain Prost and Jacques Villeneuve.
There’re several events to enjoy, with the Elite Class being the biggest pull for celebrity drivers. The original event, and arguably the very best that ice racing has to offer.
If you’re visiting the Tree Valleys in December, make sure you book your tickets in advance. The Andros Trophy is a popular event.
The Val Tho Trophy Hike
Split over two days, the Val Tho Trophy hike takes place in the Val Thorens district of the Three Valleys.
The first day (Val Tho – memorial of Jean Béranger) is a true test of endurance, and is designed to push you to your limits. Starting at the foot of the Cime Caron, you will climb 4.3km to the summit. All against the clock, but well worth the effort to get there.
If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing, the second day (Val Tho Trophy – Calm walk) is more of a fun walk. Completed at a much slower pace, and a perfect way to meet new people, or just enjoy the scenery with family and friends. Children can also take part in the Val Tho Kidz Treasure Hunt.
Fun for all the family, but make sure you all wrap up warm by choosing the right ski clothing.
Festi Val Tho
If you enjoy the electronic music scene then the Festi Val Tho is a must.
Catering for different music styles, including House, Techno, and Trance. The perfect way to relax after a day’s skiing. The festival takes place over three consecutive days, and it’s totally free!
Information about who will be there on any given day can be found on the Festi Val Tho website.
