Fire spectacle in Les Gets
Valentine’s day may have passed but don’t worry, you can still ignite the flame in the Alps. On the 24th February and the 2nd March head down to the bottom of the Chavannes next to apres bar, where it will be heating up for the descente aux flambeaux caritative. A group of ESF hotties and their students will be descending down the slopes in a procession of flames. If you’re lucky the lovely gentlemen from apres will continue to light your fire over a hot drink of zante. In all seriousness though, this is an event that shouldn’t be missed.
On the topic of things not to be missed, the Alps isn’t just for skiing, with events like Crankworx and L’tappe de tour, Les Gets is also home to the pump track which is open to all and free access all Summer long. What is a pump track you may ask? A pump track is a closed circuit with rollers in between. It is designed to be ridden without pedalling. Riders use their body to pump - or push down into the dip after elevation and pull up before the crest of a mound - throughout the continuous loop. You convert gravitational fore and downward thrust into speed.
