Skidooing is one of the most popular events with thrill seekers looking for something extra to skiing. The bikes can take 1 or 2 people at a time and there is also the option of swapping over halfway through the activity. The outings take place once the pistes have closed for the day and there is no one around, allowing you the freedom to roam.
Open: Daily from 5.45pm-9pm
Price: Adult €100 for 1 hour

If you haven’t tired yourself out on the slopes and are looking to exert some energy, Les Menuires has an excellent swimming pool and sports centre with state of the art equipment. This includes a fitness room with step, stretching and aerobic classes and a weight training area with the latest gear.
If you don’t fancy “pumping iron” then you can take the more relaxed approach and head to the well-being area where you can enjoy the hammam, sauna, Jacuzzis and spa jets. You can even call in at the beauticians and have an exotic face treatment.
There are also numerous leisure activities in the centre including squash, badminton, table tennis, volleyball and basketball. A child’s fun area also has bouncy castles, a plastic ball pool and much more for the kids to enjoy.
