Les Mosses - Sports
Throughout the weekend Col des Mosses lives and breathes cross-country skiing day and night. Just one more…don’t stop now…cross-country skiers are truly in their element as they complete non-stop circuit laps for 24 hours !
Ski-24 is an open freestyle cross-country race pitting teams of maximum 10 skiers against each other in the form of a 24 hour relay race. Each team has to develop a strategy so as to notch up the most kilometres. Kids have their own fun too with a similar event lasting 3h.
Spectators enjoy not only a sporting spectacular but the party atmosphere that reigns throughout. Numerous teams ski in fancy dress and for added value, perform the odd pirouette along the way.
The nocturnal relays provide a wonderful festival of light, the skiers headlamps twirling in the night sky at each push of the skipole. For the public it’s also a chance to enjoy a special night at the Nordic Centre in Col des Mosses.
