The seventh edition of French ski resort La Plagne’s original festival, Subli’Cimes, will return to the slopes from 7-12 April 2023.
Free to anyone who has a valid lift pass, this quirky, interactive event is spread across La Plagne’s five summits.
With spring in the air the option for festival-goers include relaxing in a Jacuzzi, joining a roller disco dance floor or diving into a huge ball pool!
“Go back in time and get into the groove at the “Roller Disco” at la Roche de Mio (2,739 m). Channel those 70s and 80s vibes, complete with neon lights, arcade games, and a juke box, topped off with a sparkling disco ball. Take off those skis and boots and pull on a pair of roller skates (rented on site) and glide around the 300 m² rink, high in the mountains. When feeling peckish, tuck into some delicious, sweet snacks, including popcorn, cupcakes, milk shakes and cookies. So, think John Travolta or Olivia Newton-John and dance the afternoon away,” a La Plagne spokesperson enthused.
The mountains are also an ideal place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. And while relaxing, why not do it from a bubbling Jacuzzi or steaming sauna surrounded by snow?
The “Zen & Spa Altitude” at the Grande Rochette (2,508 m) is back by popular demand. Pack a swimsuit when you hit the slopes in the morning, ready to experience this wellness world.
Other highlights comprise workshops with herbal teas and healthy smoothies to taste. Wooden flooring around the area means feet can be kept dry when pulling off, and putting on, boots.
Elsewhere in the festival skiers can discover an “Intergalactic Voyage” at la Rossa (2,380 m) where guests can explore a snow cave home to spectacular carvings of some well-known characters from the movies, and even dress up in costumes and challenge others to a – friendly – duel with lightsabres.
Or you can face up to those fears at “Not Scared…!” at Le Fornelet (1,970 m). Here, older kids (and big kids) can try the “Ejector”, a reverse bungee that (safely) catapults its guests 20 metres into the air. Afterwards, if legs haven’t turned to jelly, then other activities include laser quest and mini trampolines. Plus, why not join a workshop with drinks and tastings to help recover after the dramatic ordeal?
Finally, don’t miss “The Big Dive” at the top of Plan Bois (1,600 m). Perfect for families with younger children, holidaymakers will find a massive ball pool featuring a slide, a spinning wheel, and a diving board with a pit for wacky souvenir photos. Kids can also help themselves to drinks and sweet treats before jumping back in.
You don’t need skis to reach the festival. Non-skiers can reach all the summits via a gondola (apart from La Rossa, in the Champagny-en-Vanoise section).
La Plagne has created an all-inclusive stay for guests wanting to experience Subli’Cimes from €435 / £385 pp. This includes a seven-night stay at an apartment or Club Hotel from 8 April 2023, plus a six-day ski pass for the La Plagne ski area, and ski rental (adult or child) from 9-14 April 2023.
