The bright blue sky, the Vars ridges bathed in the sun, a touch of craziness...you are one of the lucky ones: about to follow the paths of some of the fastest skier in the world.

Or his son Simon, world 3rd faster with a record of 252.809 km/h on this very piste. You are about to measure yourself against the giants of this extraordinary discipline..

The speed skiing stadium is open to the public.

Once you have the basic notions, hit the piste. The piste is all yours...just like a KL champion. The perfectly prepared piste has two small devices which will announce the information you’re dying to hear - your speed!

Even if you have the impression that your legs won’t carry you any further, even if your stomach is twisting, move forward, breath and fly... In just a few seconds your anxiety will be transformed into euphoria!

Your skis brushing over the snow, the sound of the wind in your ears, you aerodynamic position will send you straight to the only line you are allowed to cross on the piste and which also judges your performance.

Don’t fear the flash - speeding is OK.

Just like all the greatest speed skiers, you will leave with a certificate of your crazy descent and your result.
