Rock on Snowboard, 9-11 Dec 2016
The opening weekend of the season always includes a major ski and snowboard test in Avoriaz. Over 50 major brands show up and you can pick and choose which 2017 skis and snowboards you want to try. There are also live music performances all weekend long, including a live set form Kavinski; there are fireworks displays; there is always mulled wine and most importantly, it’s our first slide on the mountains this season. Get your ski legs ready!

Skicolor, 11 Mar 2017
Les Gets hosts its 3rd annual SkiColour event this year, which was inspired by the Color Run event that runs worldwide. Skicolor requires you and your friends, family and children to ski down a run through explosions of coloured powder getting yourself as colourful as possible before you cross the finish line. So are you ready to paint the mountains Technicolor?
SNOWBOXX, 18 - 25 Mar 2017
This weeklong electro dance festival combines main stage concerts from headliners such as Basement Jaxx, High Contrast and Wilkinson with après parties, club nights, pool parties and on-piste competitions. Every night a concert takes place in the 'BOX' in the centre of Avoriaz so if you like goggle tans and glow sticks this is the event for you.
