Let yourself be tempted by this beautiful adventure

Enjoy a day full of emotion on the mythical Chabrières slope, the fastest slope in the world, and become part of the legend!

The scene is set with an azure blue sky, a sun flooding the Vars crests, a degree of daring... and you will be among those privileged to ride the slopes taken by the fastest skiers in the world.

After a visit to the huts at the foot of the slope for precious advice from Philippe Billy, a former slope record holder, or his son Simon, 3rd in the world with a record at 252.809 km/h on this very same slope, you may feel the desire to measure your own performance against the giants of this extraordinary discipline.

The speed skiing stadium open to the public

Once you've got the basics sorted, head for the slope. Now you are there, imagine the feat undertaken by a speed-skiing champion! A perfectly prepared slope with two small screens in the distance that in a few seconds will announce the long awaited grail: your speed.

Even if you feel like your legs will never carry you to the finish area, even if your belly twists in all directions, step forward, take a breath and go for it! In a few seconds your anxiety will turn into euphoria!

With the friction of your skis on the snow and the wind in your ears, your aerodynamic position will take you straight to the single line - the only one authorised to cross the slope, which will witness your performance.

Get flashed, speeding is allowed!

Like the greatest of the discipline, leave with your diploma attesting to your crazy descent and your medal.

Hesitate no longer, get your fill of thrills...
