New for this winter in the huge Portes du Soleil region. The village of Saint-Jean D'aulps is offering adrenaline junkies the chance to whizz down a 4km (2.5 mile) long snowy slope, in a mountain kart, at night.
The run, which takes in 800 metres of vertical descent in the low-slung three-wheel kart, allows dare devils to descend the Roc d'Enfer ski area at high velocity in the gravity powered vehicle.
Suitable for those 1.35m and taller, the white-knuckle ride starts and ends at the cable car station and is led by an expert guide. The €32 price includes return trip on cable car and a full safety briefing. Helmets should be worn and goggles or other face protection are recommended.
