Join Happy Tracks on New Year's Eve to enjoy an evening full of activities and traditional Alpine food. Pick up can be arranged from Chamonix or meet directly in Trient.
The evening starts with a welcome drink, followed by sledging down a 3km long, fast track as many times as you want - with a driver to pick you up at the bottom and drop you back off at the top!
From the sledding track, it's time to put on your snowshoes and hike through a dark forest near a huge glacier to reach the igloo after 1 hour. The igloo is hidden in the forest in a unique spot. Raphael will welcome the group with an open fire and some delicious mulled wine or hot chocolate! There will also be some delicious Canapés prepared for you!
You will enjoy a traditional Savoyarde 3-course dinner, starting with a traditional soup cooked on an open fire. The main course will be served inside the igloo which is cosy and equipped with sheepskins and candles. Here, you can enjoy a traditional Swiss cheese fondue with lots of extras (potatoes, Chorizzo, mushrooms, prickles, bread) to dip into the big pot of cheese. But watch out! If you drop something your forfeit may be to sing a song !
After this rich meal, you will be driven up to the Col de la Forclaz mountain pass and snowshoe up to a unique viewing point in the mountains (about 30 minutes hike). From here, you can enjoy the fantastic views over the entire valley as you wait for the countdown to shoot some rockets high up in the sky! After the happy New Year greetings, there is still time to enjoy a delicious mountain dessert before walking back down to the car park, where there will be shuttles taking you back to Chamonix.
Prices for this event are 110 euros per person, all inclusive.
Please note, you will need your passport when travelling from Chamonix to Trient.
