Paret Sledge Decent
A ’paret’ is a traditional Savoyard sledge made from wood with a single runner. You sit on it and balance with your legs either side. The Paret sledge Decent is a favourite with Sasha, Agency Sales Executive at Ski Total, she says 'The Paret sledge decent is by far my favourite non ski activity to do on the mountain, you can do it in large groups and is just hilarious. You get the last lift up the Palafour chairlift and all wait at the top of the mountain for a quick instruction. Then in controlled groups are let lose down the run which takes about 30 minutes in total- you get so much speed, snow is flying in your face and is just the best experience, and to top it off you get a nice glass of Vin chaud at the bottom.'
Husky-sleddingEvolution 2 organise dog sledding trips which involve flying over the frozen lake and giving you opportunity's to take in all of the pristine wilderness Tignes has to offer.
