Do something different on your winter sports holiday – fun ideas for family
Here are some great alternative winter sports activities to experience during your SB Ski holiday in Megève.
The dedicated sledging tracks in all the main ski areas are loads of fun. For a real adrenaline rush the new LaLuge run at Rochebrune that has just opened is 300 metres long. (Age restricted at 10 years old). The outdoor ice-rink in the centre of Megève is also very popular with the younger ones.
Keen walkers will enjoy the breathtaking scenery on a guided hike, or a snowshoe trek up into the mountains. For snowshoeing, join SB Ski’s favourite guide Gary at Big Smile Adventures, and get to places the skiers can’t reach!
Drive a dog sleigh and discover the sensations of paw power. Try dog sledding, another great experience for all the family to enjoy.
If you’re a ski daredevil, there are two AIR BAGs at the top of the Petit Rochebrune chair lift. Open to children aged 12 years old and over. Tickets can be purchased at the site, or from ESF offices. (This activity is weather dependent). There are safety requirements – please read this handy information.
Take to the air – or enjoy a swim in the Olympic pool
Sports facilities at Le Palais des Sports , the town’s centrepiece sports centre, include an Olympic indoor ice-rink, swimming pool and sauna complex, modern gym, climbing wall, curling rink and indoor tennis courts.
How about a tandem paraglide flight? Or view the landscape from on high by taking a balloon, helicopter or small plane flight. Details on all these events here.
Just ask at the Hotel Chalet d’Antoine reception for recommendations. The in-resort team are always happy to help with bookings and provide advice.
