Snowy mountains meet sandy beaches when ski and snowboard resort Avoriaz hosts sun, ski and snowboarding parties in the Alps during the Spring Break weekend, from Saturday 23rd to Monday 25th April 2011.
Avoriaz’s beach make-over will play host to a party crowd this Easter break for wakeboarding sessions and competitions, roof-top concerts, exotic sandy bars and terraces, shopping markets, snow and sand volleyball and of course great skiing and snowboarding!
Pro wakeboarding competition qualifying rounds will kick off at 3pm on Saturday in the centre of Avoriaz, with the most skilled riders boarding-it-out for the championship crown on Sunday afternoon.
Rookies will also have the chance to take part in free wakeboarding amateur sessions on Saturday and Sunday from 10am. All riders – from great boarders to great fallers – will be captured for online films so they can share their moves. Then on Monday the best amateur wakeboarding clubs in France and Switzerland will board their hearts out to be named the best riders in the Alps.
The fun-in-the-sun will also include special beach and Latin terraces for lunchtime beers and après ski parties, open-air music, and beach and snow volleyball.
Bargain hunters will also love the discounted goodies available at the markets, offering great value on sportswear, skis, snowboards, and mountain souvenirs.
Then at sunset the party starts; from 8pm Avoriaz’s bars will kick into Spring Break mode with full on clubbing from midnight until dawn.
