Easter Sunday competition open to EVERYONE will take place throughout Les3Vallees - Pros, families, mates.... get racing. NEW

An enduro is a long-distance race that includes a number of obstacles or challenges.

The world's largest ski area, Les3Vallees in France, has created its own enduro competition that includes an impossible number of events to complete across the entire ski zone.

Or is it possible?


First hand, we here at PlanetSKI can tell you how seriously fun and competitive the Enduro can be.
Has anyone else got some Olympic-buzzed energy to expend?

There are three categories in which you can enter: Pros, Amateurs, Families

Everyone is in it together.

You can take the day however you like, as tiny tots with parents zip around, up and down in the fun and sporting atmosphere alongside groups of friends and local teams made up of racer pros.

From Courchevel to Val Thorens, back to Meribel (unless you plan it better) to complete some of these events:
  • Freeride
  • Big Air Bag
  • Freestyle
  • Biathlon
  • Family schuss by Adrien Théaux
  • Fight Ski Club by Jean Fred Chapuis
  • Triplette des Belleville
The aim of the day:

To discover Les3Vallées and have fun on skis and snowboards.

This will be the 16th edition of the Enduro.

Last year saw 1,500 take part in the races as different as playful as skiing can be.

The huge Savoyard buffet at lunch time (with stations at various points on the mountains) is welcome break and is included in your ticket.
