It is almost the time to close the slopes. In these moments when skiers return home, 2 new activities take over the relay: the descent of the slopes in the Snake Slide with Christophe Moulin on the side of the Pleynet and the Air Board with Jochen Bogghero. On the Prapoutel side, it is the host of the tourist office who introduces you to the Snake Slide. At the top of the trails, there is an inflating session for some (those who will settle on the Air Board) and the formation of a serpentine for others.
For some as for others, the descent on Air Board and Snake Slide promises to be sensational. You feel a surge of excitement and adrenaline but comes the moment when you can no longer push back: you have to go down the slope.
A serpentine with that acts like a rocket
At the top of the Prapoutel and Pleynet trails, facing the slope you see the Snake Slide serpentine form little by little. Several sledges hooked together where adults and children settle down. The less reassured settle in the front, where it’s quieter, while thrill seekers take their seats at the back. It is at the back that you feel the most thrills.
In a few moments, the Snake Slide will slide down the snow-covered slopes now closed to skiers. A few minutes downhill! A few minutes when your adrenaline will go up.
Airboard: adrenaline guaranteed
Head first at ground level, you feel the wind and the snow whipping your face. What is your cruise speed? You don’t know, but one thing is for sure is that on this inflatable sled, you slide on the snowy slopes, it goes down fast, very fast sometimes. The bottom of Prapoutel or Pleynet are approaching at high speed.
If you have to hang on to tame your mount, it is undeniable that the sensations are immense. Bumps, turns, hollows, you glide on the snowy slopes on the Snake Slide or Air Board head first and you have only one thought in mind: start again!
