SPRING SKIING AND SLACKLINING IN LES ARCS
Spring is in the air in the mountain villages of Les Arcs, which boasts 425km of runs up to 3250m as part
of the Paradiski area.

Many mountain resorts celebrate the arrival of Spring with a packed schedule of events comprising
concerts, games, entertainment and parties on the slopes. But only Les Arcs has the Winter Festislack.
An amazing festival celebrating Slacklinng!



But what is Slacklining?
The High Line
The Slackline, a piece of webbing usually between 2-5cm wide, is attached between two points or in the case of Les Arcs, two peaks at altitude and then daredevils walk across them. Members of the public can watch the Slackliners and marvel at the skill and balance of these high- flying athletes. This spectacle takes place during the Easter holidays, 6-8 April, at the top of Mont Blanc chairlift, in Les Deux Têtes - Arc 1600 and showcases the very best Slackliners from around the globe.

The Trick Line - Sunday 8 April, 14-18.00 hrs
Tricklining will be showcased in Miravidi place - Arc 1800- here Slackliners will perform dynamic tricks and jumps, similar to those performed on a trampoline.

Get fit, get on a Slackline - Sunday 8 April, 14-18.00 hrs
The benefits of Slacklining include improved balance and a strengthened core. Members of the public wanting to have a go should head to Les Deux Têtes in Arc 1600, where a tuition area will get wanna-be 'Slackers' up and on a line - close to the ground! There is also the chance to learn Acroyoga.
