Consider yourself a bit of a speed demon? If you have a need for speed and love for extreme sports, then you may want to look at entering the world-famous “Mont Vallon Challenge” in Méribel this April. This exhilarating end of season event involves teams of two completing a downhill ski run and mountain bike descent together over an action-packed weekend. |
It’s really simple to get involved: simply book a place for you and your team mate, your flights and your Geneva to Méribel transfer. And voila, you are on your way to indulge a love of showmanship and speed.
What the Challenge Entails
Taking place on the weekend of the 21st of April, the action begins on the Saturday with a crucial ski qualification taking place - this timed run has two purposes: it will determine where you both start in the main event the following day and it will wet your whistle for the real action.
On the Sunday, the adrenaline-inducing action kicks-off with ski trial from the top of Mont Vallon, before the mountain bike descent takes you all the way to Brides les Bains. This is down a track that will test the nerve of even the most extreme rider. You must both then cross the finish line together to close the chronometer in a dramatic close to a breathless dash!
After the Action
After the challenge has been completed, there is then a fun prize-giving ceremony where the most hardcore will be rewarded for their impressive efforts. The fun does not have to stop here, however, as this would be the perfect time to stay on at Méribel and indulge in the spectacular après scene found here!
Méribel is a magnet for party animals and you will certainly feel like partying after such an intense and exhilarating event. There are dozens of lively pubs and clubs that stay open long into the night, with plenty of these places offering live music too. Le Rond Point is perhaps the most famous venue and attracts people from all around the world for their raucous parties. Jack’s Bar is another popular drinking establishment that hosts many fun themed nights, whilst O’Sullivans stays open into the early hours and has many acclaimed DJ’s and live music. Wherever you end up, it is sure to be a blast and the perfect end to a wild weekend.
