Pass Border Rally Game
On Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 February 2018, the Portes du Soleil is hosting a massive snow game on the slopes in partnership with Geopark Chablais. The event is part of the "Ski et de la Neige" festival. The game gives skiers and boarders a chance to solve puzzles and find out about little-known features of the area, which is a part of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network.
22 beacons have been placed in the ski area. The final beacon is compulsory and is located at Les Lindarets.
If you arrive at the final beacon having validated at least 8 beacons, including at least one in France and at least one in Switzerland, and if you have passed the Final Quizz, you will be awarded a Geopark prize.
You can also take part in the prize draw with different types of prizes to be won (the list below is non-exhaustive):
- Bronze level - between 8 and 12 beacons: Portes du Soleil sunglasses, a 1 day ski pass for the Portes du Soleil.
- Silver level - between 13 and 17 beacons: an Eider jacket, a 6 day ski pass for the Portes du Soleil, Julbo glasses or helmet.
- Gold level - between 18 and 22 beacons: Play station gaming console, a pair of Rossignol skis
