Gaming becomes a reality in Les Menuires, 9-10 December 2017, at the inaugural Les Menuires Geek Festival.
Gaming events are scheduled to take place all around the ski resort, situated at the heart of the Three Valleys ski area, over the opening weekend of the new winter season.
Gamers and geeks will be able to enjoy laser quest, animations that are virtually real as well as life-size video games – all on snow.
It’s the first time an event like this has been held in a mountain environment and Les Menuires are very proud hosts.
Les Menuires has dedicated a further 1000m2 inside to gaming during the festivities:
Geeks and guests can indulge in historical ski and snowboard console action in the Retro-gaming area.
The next generation of gaming technology is on show on snow for people to get their hands on in the Experience section and discover an escape game hidden in an igloo on the mountainside. At the snow front in La Croisette watch the NEW illumination of the area on Saturday 9th December with a ‘pyro’ show and concert.
Divided in 4 teams, gamers and skiers – comedians, Youtubers, artists and free riders will also compete for the Menuires Geek festival Cup, awarded during the evening Raclette Party.
And as the sun sets and apres ski begins so does ‘GAMEAT’ – which is gaming and eating of course! www.menuiresgeekfestival.com/en/
…and Female Fitness Freaks.. Pop in!
9000 women have participated in urban events ‘Pop in the City’ since its inception in 2012. Now for 2018 it’s in back in the mountains…
Pop in Les Menuires is just for the girls and takes place on 10 March 2018. Intrepid females from all over Europe will take on a series of mental, strategic and physical challenges over 8 hours culminating in an evening extravaganza and prize giving.
‘Pop in’ originated in the cities of Europe and moved to the mountains for the first time in 2014.
Estelle Roy, Press Officer, Les Menuires adds, “We are excited to host these two ‘first time’ events, the Geek Festival over our opening weekend and ‘Pop in Les Menuires’ later in the season. We offer so many events season long and this ‘Pop in’ girls-only challenge will be great fun and really complements our other activities.”
