In the Bellevarde sector, there is racing this morning on the top sections of the OK and Orange runs and the Raye, and it will re-open to the public later in the day. The Santons may close later in the day due to rising avalanche danger. Skiing in Tignes can be accessed via both the Borsat and Tommeuse chairlifts.

Another event to come at the end of the season, the Léo's Invitational. The third edition of this great event which combines; paragliding, speed riding, ULM, skiing, snowboarding and more in the Manchet valley. An event set to take place on April 12th, on the terrace of the restaurant at the entrance to the Manchet Valley, formerly the Clocheton.
Many professional athletes will be present throughout the day for a show which promises to be unforgettable, before a final concert with the group “A la Bonheur”. All eyes on the sky from April 9th since such a show requires several days of training and practice.
All proceeds from the day will be donated to charity, the objective of Léo's Invitational has always been to raise funds for different charitys, such as 'Our little stars', 'Riders for Refugees', 'Protect our Winters' and local charity 'Dans les yeux de Gabin'.

This winter will also see the return of 'Vol et Ski'. After a successful first edition last year, held on the terrain near the Arcelles and Marmottons slopes, this competition returns again on the weekend of March 9th and 10th.
As a reminder, this is a set of precision tests in paragliding and skiing, with participants having to complete a series of obstacles during their flight before aiming for a landing target. 6 other heats have already taken place this winter in other resorts in the Alps, and Val d'Isère is hosting the French championship event.
Last year, difficult weather forced the organisers, the association “Les aigles de Val d'Isère Vol libre” to postpone. This year a postponement date is planned for March 30th and 31st.
