The Trophy of Hope
See you on 22 February for the Trophée de l'Espoir! For 25 years, Les Menuires' calendar has been marked each winter by this important charity event. The aim of this day, sponsored by David Douillet, is to raise money for the Association Départementale des Infirmes Moteurs Cérébraux 74 (the Départemental association for Cerebral Palsy). In 2022, the money raised was used to buy a boat adapted for young people with disabilities.
The friendlyMenuires Festival
From 11 to 14 March, join in the fun at the "friendlyMenuires Festival" – three unique evenings (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) featuring a one-man show, drama, magic and illusion but most of all, laughter. The 2024 event has a new name but retains its authentic feel, with a broader range of artists joining us and up to 700 people taking part each evening.
This year, you'll be able to watch performances by the dynamic duo, Gil & Ben, and Anthony Joubert, the multi-talented artist and comedian. And there'll be more surprises in store...
Complètement à la Masse (Madness in La Masse), Round 2
On 23 March, we'll be celebrating snowsports here at Les Menuires.
Throughout the day in the La Masse sector, a number of insane races will attract up to 750 participants, who will compete in events combining speed and precision. Skiing will be the centre of attention, but not exclusively! Entertainment, drinks and food will be available throughout the day.
This competition promises to be a unique spectacle for all the participants involved and for the spectators who come to support them! It all comes to a festive end with the prize-giving ceremony where the winners will be rewarded with numerous prizes, followed by a wild concert which will get Le Break buzzing 🕺

Trios can sign up as a professional, amateur or family team for the memorable experience of battling it out on skis.
The 8th edition of Yogiski
Yogiski week is back, from 8 to 12 April! Les Menuires resort is once again celebrating a chilled attitude with this varied, action-packed programme.
