Toboggan fun at Val Thorens
As such, the final shift of the British Easter holidays begins on Monday (April 7th 2008), and families gifted with this late term break may wish to consider taking a late season European ski holiday.
For plenty of fun, ski holidays in Val Thorens could be a good choice, as the resort is hosting its first ever Toboggan Cup this month.
On April 6th, making use of France's longest tobogganing run, the event will be open to people of all ages and promises to be "fun-filled".
Children, mums and dads and even professional tobogganers will be able to enter one of four different categories - there is even a category set aside for couples.
Placing to one side your skis for the duration of the challenge, zoom down the six kilometre run to the end, where all competitors, winners or losers, will be able to partake in a giant raclette.
