Are you looking for the ultimate thrill-seeker experiences? Do you love the snow parks and prefer the off-piste to groomed slopes? Dear thrill-seekers, you are in luck: many ski resorts now offering daring and challenging opportunities in the mountains.
Here the top 5 ultimate thrill-seeking experiences:
1. Snowmobile Riding
Most thrill-seekers have probably dreamed of taking to the mountains on their very own snowmobile. Well, with more and more resorts offering this experience, you are in luck. Try your hand at driving a snowmobile or in Val Thorens be dragged along while sitting on a banana!
2. Drive a Piste Groomer
If snowmobiling sounds too small for you, why not upgrade and go XL and drive a piste groomer? A piste groomer, often called a Snowcat or Pistenbully, may not be the quickest experience, but it is most certainly the ultimate experience. ‘Whizz” across the pistes and discover the runs with no skiers or snowboarders around you. In Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis sign and experience this yourself!
3. Olympic toboggan run
Many of us have tried tobogganing in the snow, but in La Plagne, you can try the ultimate toboggan ride. The Olympic Bobsleigh track. With 19 bends and speeds up to 120km, you won’t have experienced anything like this before. Take on either the; bob raft, speed luge or bob racing. Do you dare?
4. Ice diving
Have you seen plenty of the white winter wonderland that surrounds you? Would you like to experience a different side of winter? Then submerge yourself and dive into the world of Ice Diving. You can try this unique ultimate thrill-seeker experience at many resorts across the Alps. But in Val Cenis, you dive into the Sollières-Sardières lake where you may not see any tropical fish, but a world of wonder.
5. Speed riding
If you are looking for the ultimate speed test with a stunning view, then speed riding is right for you. Attach yourself to a parachute and clip into powder skis, and you are ready to go. With an adrenalin rush guaranteed try out the speed riding at Serre Chevalier Vallée or in Les Arcs.
