Snow, Music and Adventure! – Les Deux Alpes
I think that would be it for my French! I must admit France and mountains is the most beautiful combination! After 13 years of avoiding winter holidays, snow and skiing; it was about the time I braved it! Yes, it was cold; yes it snowed quite a bit but being above the clouds and seeing the views were priceless.
Not to mention the amazing Rise Festival with acts like Annie Mac, Hospitality and S.P.Y (just naming my favourites). The main arena might have looked easy and chilled during the day but at night there was no space to stand! Imagine hundreds and hundreds of people raving to greatest tunes. If you fancy a pre-party warm up it was always good to head over to Pano bar in the middle of the mountains for their happy hour. Watch out though – after one too many drinks you might want to take the lift back rather then snowboard/ski it down the slopes!
We were quite lucky with the weather, or at least I think so! We have managed to get beautiful sunny days with great visibility – just perfect conditions for snow activities; as well as snow storms that have lasted a whole day, I could have not seen anything within 3 meters. It felt like a thick snow waterfall – insane!!
Overall, I had a great time at both a festival and up the mountains at Pano. Everyone who is considering booking your Rise tickets for 2019 – you should do it! All the party people whom I’ve met over the last couple of days have already guaranteed their attendance the next season! It has been a great holiday for all of us and I cannot wait for my next adventure!
