Unique Winter Experiences

Paret Sledging

This is a fun-filled group activity for adults and teenagers to enjoy. You’ll take the last lift up to the mid-station at Grands Montets once all the pistes have closed for the day, then race down to the bottom on a traditional wooden ‘paret’. It’s a bit like sledging but with only one runner underneath you, you’ll be using your legs and body weight to move around and brake. 

You will need to wear your ski gear and a sturdy pair of boots (no ski boots though!) high visibility vests are provided and the lift is included in your ski pass - if you don’t already have a pass you can buy pedestrian passes once you’re there. Join a paret sledging session every Wednesday in winter from approximately 16:15. Booking in advance is essential. Other dates may be available on request.  Priced per person - minimum group sizes apply.

Wilderness Soirée

Combine Paret sledging (see above) with an evening meal meal in a traditional Mongolian Yurt, hidden away in the forest. Once you’ve finished sliding down the home run at Grands Montets on your sledges, you’ll be met with roaring fires and a nice welcome at the yurt. Dinner will comprise of a soup starter, followed by a traditional meal of salad, tartiflette and a dessert to finish. 

This is a great way to celebrate a special occasion, or just to have a lot of fun and enjoy something completely different with a group of friends or family. Wilderness evenings take place every Wednesday in winter from approximately 16:15. Booking in advance is essential. Other dates may be available on request. Price is dependent on group size.

The Italian Job

There are no Minis in this Italian Job, just high-speed skidoos and mouth-watering Italian food and wine. You leave Chamonix at around 5pm and head through the Mont Blanc tunnel into Courmayeur. Put your head torch on and jump on the back of a skidoo, ready to race up the mountain to 2000 metres where a cosy restaurant and sparkling champagne awaits.

Salads, roasted vegetables, crispbreads, amazing pasta, grilled meats: the food is, as you would imagine, as special as the journey! At the end of the evening you descend on your skis or snowboards, with head torches lighting your way. Non-skiers will be taken back down on the skidoos. Minimum group sizes apply - contact us for more details.
