Ice Driving Val Thorens

This week our blog takes a look at the new attraction to take over Val Thorens in the Three Valleys. Not only can you ski over 600 km of piste, you can now take part in a new type of adrenaline whilst enjoying your family winter holiday.

Ice Driving Val Thorens started in 2014 and has become a must do attraction for those who are looking for that extra piece of adrenaline and adventure whilst on their winter break.

The Ice Driving Academy pictured above allows for children (depending on the level of driving ability) to take part from the age of 16 accompanied by an adult.

There are a range of different types of vehicle to choose from including buggies, rally cars and go karts. If you want to settle the age old argument of who is the better driver, we think we may have found the next activity on your to do list when visiting a luxury chalet in Val Thorens.

For those who are a bit more daring there is an opportunity to be driven round the ice track in a Mitsubishi sports car (pictured above) by a professional ice rally driver. Make sure to not wear a white pair of salopettes if travelling at high speed on ice makes you feel uneasy.

The cars have been designed to slide around the ice track with the instructors being on hand to show you how to control the drift. For those in the family who might not be as an accomplished skier, Ice Driving Val Thorens provides a memorable day out that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Make sure to visit the team at Ice Driving Val Thorens next time you are in resort to test your hand at this high speed adventure.

If this wasn’t enough you can now visit the new Ultimate Luxury Chalet in Val Thorens with its very own Formula 1 simulator just in case your ice driving experience didn’t give you your fill!
