Historically, here in the Portes du Soleil our resorts have hosted internationally renowned events: world championships, the Grande Odyssée Savoie Mont-Blanc husky race, the Festival du Film Fantastique, the IX CUP... In recent years, we've developed two major events:
For the last 12 years the Pass'Portes du Soleil MTB festival has launched the summer season in the Portes du Soleil. Always over the last weekend of June, this MTB tour - with nine participating starter resorts - makes it possible to do an 80km circuit through our mountains, with a little help from the 15 lifts in operation. The traditional food stops, the MTB fair and grandiose scenery have made it a huge hit with riders all over the world. With 6,600 riders and a record 95% satisfaction rate, what could be better!
In winter for the last 6 years, our Rock the Pistes music festival has been causing a frenzy with music and ski fans! As the first music festival of the spring, taking place in the third week of March, this atypical festival takes place on the ski slopes at altitude. Concerts by French and international rock artists including Kesiah Jones, Babyshambles, Shaka Ponk, Selah Sue, Caravan Palace, Skip the Use, Ben l'Oncle Soul, Cali..., begin at 1pm every day, with access on skis! So you can be sure to have a "Ski, Sun and Sound" cocktail this winter!
