Before anything else, the Résidence Les Edelweiss wishes you a happy new year!
Start 2022 on a humorous note during your winter holidays in Champagny, by discovering the Gorzderette: a not-to-be-missed event in the resort, organised from 28 to 30 January.
3 days of winter sports tournaments open to all, more than 400 participants and more than 100 volunteers, in a festive and offbeat atmosphere!
A frosty event for a crazy ski holiday in Champagny
This year, the small Vanoise resort is already hosting the 18th edition of this gathering of winter sports enthusiasts, with the famous slogan “Relax, it’s going to be fun! The name of the event originates from the inhabitants of Champagny-le-Haut in patois, the “Gorzdérés”, who lived “behind the gorges”.
In complete safety and in a crazy spirit, families, accomplished sportsmen and beginners can come and compete in several disciplines. The events are varied and costumes are compulsory throughout the 3 days of cross-country skiing, orienteering, ice climbing and mountaineering tournaments… Not forgetting the unmissable hay sled and snowshoe-tandem races!
All participants benefit from professional supervision: the ideal opportunity to learn new sports. All this while enjoying numerous activities, including equipment tests, meals, concerts and a film evening. And as a bonus, an exceptional show by the best climbers on the famous Tour de Glace of Champagny!
