European Ski Resorts for Parties in 2017/2018
Ski Resorts and Party season is here! A hedonist’s delight, the luxurious ski resorts of Europe welcome discerning skiers each winter with the promise of powdery pistes, delectable cuisines, relaxing spa resorts, and an endless selection of other indulgent fancies. Most appealing to many, however, is the offer of après-ski: cool bars, chic clubs, and atmospheric mountain huts entice weary visitors with cozy settings, lively atmospheres, and a truly memorable occasion.
In the busier resorts, entire festivals are organized to mark the start of the skiing season. We raise our champagne flutes to these special alpine parties in some of Europe’s best ski resorts. Helicopter charter flights in France and Switzerland provide a stylish entrance to these opulent parties in the winter of 2017/2018.
Tignes – Live in Tignes by Francofolies
Advertised as 3 days of sun, skiing, and music, Live in Tignes is a celebration of alpine culture. Held each April, to mark the end of another successful ski season in Tignes, the free music concerts enjoy an electronic motif and are hosted by many talented musicians. For 2018, Shaka Ponk, Bigflo & Oli, L.E.J, Catherine Ringer, Juliette Armanet, and Naâman have all been announced in the line-up of performers, but additional stars are yet to be named. Hosted at 3 outdoor settings, the festival enjoys a friendly atmosphere and can be enjoyed by all the family. Tignes is exceptionally consistent in its offering of snow, making it a favorite resort for much of the year.
Ski Resorts for Parties
Méribel & Megève – La Folie Douce
La Folie Douce: high-altitude clubbing has never been so high-octane. Since 1980, the celebrated party has grown from strength to strength, welcoming partygoers of all ages to the franchise’s breathtaking locations across the French Alps. While there are five destinations in which one can enjoy an opening party at Le Folie Douce, we recommend the events at Méribel or Megève, which are being held on the 9th and 23rd December respectively. Expect the finest entertainment in the mountains: dancers, musicians, DJs, performers, singers, fine food and loud music.
Les Deux Alpes, France – Rise Festival
Set on the peaks of Europe’s largest skiable glacier between 16th and 23rd December, Rise Festival offers memorable parties from the afternoon through to the early hours of the morning. Large outdoor stages, bars, and nightclubs welcome DJs and artists from around the world for this week-long celebration. Hosted in part by the legendary Craig David. Rise Festival brings Les 2 Alpes to life, yet relaxation is also on the cards: festival-goers can enjoy daytime yoga sessions and treatments at spas. Attendees to the festival can also enjoy the region’s 220km of pistes and stunning views.
