Introductory sessions open to the public will also be held. In order to handle this sort of contraption, you’ll need to know how to ski… just come along and have a go.
What exactly is ski-bob ? This very agile piece of kit consists of two separate scooters, one under the handlebar fork, the other under the frame. This sliding sport can be done throughout the Espace Diamant ski area !
Ski bob has been available for a number of years in the Val d’Arly, as a result of the interest created by Richard Platt, Vincent Berod (French champion) and James Mollier. Two races are organised every winter, one in Notre Dame de Bellecombe called the NDB Race, and the other in Crest-Voland / Cohennoz, known as the Fun Race Skibob.
From Wednesday 12 to Friday 14 January 2022.
