Being one of the most snow sure resorts in the world, you shouldn’t need an excuse to book a late season holiday to Val d’Isère, but Winter X Games may well be the icing on the cake that you needed. Every March, the best freestyle skiers and snowboarders on the planet descend on this amazing event in the Espace Killy ski area.

X Games Base Camp

The event includes Superpipe and Slopestyle competitions for both men and women, skiers and snowboarders; and there is also a snowmobile exhibition. Watching the pros doing triple corks and outrageous backflips truly is a sight to behold and should be experienced at least once.

Freestyle Trick

Tignes has hosted this competition every year since 2010, and it always provides a fantastic break from your own skiing. Thousands of freestyle fans head over to Tignes to cheer their heroes on and to be part of one of the best shows in Europe. Tying this in with your week’s ski holiday leads to an fantastic trip.
