Here is a selection of Must-sees in Manigod created especially for your stay!
Slide on a paret
You love sledding and want to try a typical Manigod activity ? The paret is made for you!
Emblematic sledge of the resort village of Manigod, the paret has a single runner, equipped with a board for sitting down and a handle for steering. Consisting of a seat and a runner, it keeps contact with the ground since legs and feet remain in contact with the snow. It is practiced on the piste, in the evening, after the day's skiing, or in areas dedicated to sledding. So, all you have to do is put on your snow boots, helmet and ski mask, then your suit and off you go to hit the slope! Sensations guaranteed!
The little story:
At the beginning of the 20th century, the Manigodins used it during the winter to get to the village school, down the snow-covered roads.
Alternative : the Yooner
The little brother of the Paret, the Yooner is a hybrid sliding machine, halfway between the sledge and the ski. A real invitation to slide : light, easy to handle and very comfortable !

Hit the ski slopes at night
Skiing at night under a starry sky? In Manigod, it is possible!
The resort has the largest night skiing area in Savoie Mont Blanc! Four ski lifts and eight lighted slopes allow you to ski under the stars.
What a treat to be able to ski at night in the light of the spotlights and under a starry vault… the mountain is revealed in another face. The sensations of sliding take a different turn in an unusual nocturnal atmosphere ... the magic is at the rendezvous.
Want to discover new sensations of sliding? Test snowtubing! Fun and giggles in an inflatable buoy at night. This activity is equally suitable for children and adults. Well installed in the buoy, just steer it to hurtle down the boardercross track and its banked turns! Pick up speed, hang in there and go.
So who will be the best pilot?
