There is still so much more fun to be had once the ski lifts have closed… There are numerous activities to explore in resort after a day’s skiing and here at Iglu we have tried and tested plenty of winter attractions and events to recommend only the best for you.
Probably the most fun on snow you can have without skis! Toboggan down the longest track in France and revel in the spectacular views, hilarious moments and adrenaline rushes down the 6km run. From an altitude of 3000m at the Péclet glacier, it’s a 45 minute decent of sliding entertainment through varied slopes and raised bends. A fun filled family activity suitable for everyone from 5 years old.
Enjoy an unforgettable winter activity through pristine Canadian backcounty. See the slopes from a different angle & ride your very own skidoo through fresh powder or head into the remote wilderness with a professional guide. Scenic tours are a great introduction to the backcountry through tree-lined tracks and extraordinary landscapes.
The St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow is the world’s most prestigious winter polo tournament. Nearly 15,000 spectators from every corner of the world make the pilgrimage to Lake St Moritz every year. It is the social highlight in St. Moritz where the World Cup has been held every year since 1985. Don’t miss the next tournament 29 Jan – 01 Feb 2015!!
Experience high speeds up to 115km/h in a professional Olympic bobsleigh. This once in a life time activity will leave your adrenaline pumping for days after. Choose from the Guest bobsled where you can reach speeds of up to 90 km/h through the 800m long ice track, or unleash your inner dare devil and take the driven taxi bob and hit 115km/h over the 1270m ice track. Just don’t forget your lucky egg!
Les Arcs has reinvented this traditional activity of being pulled along on your skis by a horse across all types of terrain. Originating in Scandinavia, competitive ski Joering is practiced all over the world. A series of forest trails in Les Arcs have been transformed into over 20km of Ski Joering routes in a natural environment of rare beauty.
