Super Slalom, April 4th, 2020
It started as a crazy idea between friends, as is often the case, but this time it snowballed. Of course, to come up with the idea of a 4 km slalom with 320 gates (a normal slalom has about 70), you have to be a real diehard! … Julien Lizeroux and Julien Régnier are the guilty parties who invite all their ski champion buddies to take part in this original event on Saturday, April 4th, 2020 in La Plagne.
Work your thighs!
If you are keen to have a go, start getting ready, because there are only 400 places available! Whether you are a professional skier or not, you must prove that you have the level needed to get to the bottom (in one piece). Registrations open during the winter season on the Super Slalom website.
The “Village Challenges”, a preview of the event
The Super Slalom organisers propose a warm-up with places to win during the “Village challenges”. Champagny en Vanoise, La Plagne Montchavin-les Coches and La Plagne Montalbert welcome potential participants with 4 bibs to win for the big day.
A Ski party with a capital S
If the golden rule is to HAVE FUN, there are still a few principles to observe:
• Unicorns and Power Rangers can compete in the Super Slalom,
• The prizes here are wheels (of Beaufort) and everlasting glory,
• Non-skiers play a crucial role: who can get down a 4 km slalom without encouragement?
• The birds are singing! The month of March has moved aside for a period that is all about skiing in the sun. A village set up in La Roche welcomes madcap skiers and non-skiers alike. Music, games and food: it’s the place to be!
