Fireworks in the Alps!

Mulled wine, hearty warming food, fresh air and big winter coats…not just ways in which we enjoy spending time in the Alps, but also all necessary for the ever so seasonal Bonfire Nights!

In addition to all of these, the most exciting similarity of all surely must be Fireworks! Featuring in many ski resorts for not only New Year (surely the perfect time to be in the Alps?) but fireworks also make an appearance at many of the Ski School Shows.

We have come across some incredible images of rockets over the snowy peaks, and thought we’d share the best of them…

Fireworks in Flaine

Not exactly a bad photo by Nicolas Dolatyari-Dolatdoust for Flaine…we’re thinking he probably didn’t use an camera phone!


If you prefer the bangs of the fireworks to be supported with the latest dance tracks pumping from Top DJ’s, Tignes excitingly named Fire Mix Party could well be the night for you…
