15h30-17h00: Initiation and fun discovery of rifle-shooting biathlon, leaded by qualified instructors. The biathlon is an Olympic sport, associating cross-country skiing to rifle shooting but here, the skiing is replaced by “running”. During a competition, distances vary in general between 7.5km and 20km. But don’t worry, the objective today is to have fun! The rifle-shooting is the main activity. The itinerary will be just long enough to get you “out of breath” and to force you to concentrate more to aim the heart of the target. You will discover this discipline encouraging precision, concentration, self-control and stress handling. Warm drinks will be served during the activity.
17h00: You are at 1 900m height… the instructors equip you with helmet, fluorescent jacket and each of you with his « paret ». What is a paret? A traditional sliding gear born in the Manigod Valley in Upper Savoy. This wooden homemade object is a sledge with only one skate, equipped with an inclined board on which we can seat and a handle to lead it.
17h30-18h30: The instructors brief the « caravan »… And let’s go for 30 to 45 minutes of ride, 800 meters of height drop! It’s magical, only descent! An unforgettable moment!
