Unmissable 3 Vallées skiing spot La Masse will be transformed for a day to host 3 ski races (solo and relay in the morning, downhill race with a ‘special stages' format in the afternoon) and plenty more activities and entertainment. Adjust your bindings, don your skis and get ready for an experience buzzing with energy and fun 🤪

The Races

Solo Race

The solo race will kick off the day with up to 250 skiers competing in a major challenge! It will include 4.3km of downhill skiing with a vertical drop of over 850m, around a hundred turns and 6 obstacles along the way - mogul field, biathlon, snake run, ‘water slide', boardercross-style section and jumps - bringing plenty of excitement to this challenging course!


If you prefer ‘working' in a team, the relay race is the one for you! Up to 100 teams of 3 will come together for this morning race divided into 3 stages:

An action-packed team race perfect for groups who are stronger together 💪

Special Stages Format

This race between up to 200 participants will include 4 timed special stages and 4 obstacles! It'll be quite some challenge, promising an exciting watch for spectators.

Prize-Giving Ceremony, Activities and Entertainment

The prize-giving ceremony will take place at 4.30pm in La Croisette, with lots of prizes in store for the competition's big winners. Come in fancy dress! The jury will award a special prize to the skier with the best costume.

There will be activities and entertainment (ski band, parade, axe throwing, Ferris wheel, etc.) along with refreshment stands and food on the La Masse terraces at the summit, halfway down by the Friendly Natural Park and at the foot of the slopes in La Croisette. And the celebrations won't end there - after giving it your all in the race, you'll have earned a chance to let your hair down! The day will finish on a high note with a concert at Le Break sports centre, and as a bonus, there'll be a prize draw with loads of prizes up for grabs.
