Enjoy The October Glacier Snow At Les 2 Alpes (04-Sep-11)

Les 2 Alpes closed for summer skiing and boarding at the weekend but
plans to re-open over an 11 day period at the end of October for its annual ski and board testing, competition and festival event.

Nowadays Tignes is the only French resort that tries to stay open from September inwards, with most French resorts opening from the end of November onwards, but Les 2 Alpes has always had a big success with opening over the last two weekends of October and although the event’s name has changed again, 2011 should be no exception.

The events will run from October 22nd until November 1st, 2011, starting with a new snowboarding event on October 22nd and 23rd. The two days will see boarding between 3200 and 1600m and will include contests, pro demos, brand testing, boarding movie premieres, concerts and down in the village skateboarding competition.
