SO NOW YOU HAVE ALL OUR BEST SPOTS FOR ENJOYING WINTER SPORTS IN SAVOIE! 

Need a reminder about your equipment?

It's very simple : take your ski equipment and good après-ski snow boots, and you’re fully kitted out!

Your hands do a lot of work when sledging to brake and steer, and they’re quite close to the snow, so go for a good pair of waterproof ski gloves / mittens.

We can't say it too many times, but for you, as well as for your children, a helmet is essential for all types of winter sports (skiing, snowboarding, sledging etc).

A ski mask, to protect your eyes from UV rays and ensure good vision even when you pick up speed.

And of course, it’s important to respect the following safety rules: 

- Do not set off down the track while another sledge is heading down in front of you to avoid any risk of collision.

- Go back up the sides of the track so as not to get in the way of other sledgers.

- You must not toboggan on ski slopes and on mountain roads, even if they’re snow-covered.

In our video tutorial series, our sledger gives you all the keys to learn how to sledge safely. Step by step, here are our tips for controlling your sledge (wooden, flat or snow shovel).
