29 and 30 January 2022: return of the Tarentaise obstacle races

Following the cancellation of the Winter Spartan Race in 2021 due to the health situation, the event will return to Valmorel for its 6th edition. This event is held on the last weekend of January and offers sports enthusiasts 4 obstacle races: sprint (5 km and 20 obstacles), super (10 km and 25 obstacles), hurricane heat (4h team race) and kids race (0.8 km for 4-6 year olds; 1.6 km for 7-9 year olds; 3.2 km for 10-14 year olds).

In the midst of winter and the splendid Alpine landscapes, the participants will run through the snow, climb the steep slopes of Valmorel, crawl under barbed wire, climb a horizontal climbing wall, carry tree trunks and jump over flames! Each obstacle, under the watchful eye of the judges, must be crossed by the athletes, on pain of a series of burpees... Will you try this experiment?

Organised in the Alps since 2016, the Winter Spartan Race was an almost immediate success. It is no coincidence that Valmorel has hosted each of its editions. It is the first accessible resort in Tarentaise. Moreover, this Savoyard village has direct access to the Grand Domaine (1450m - 2550m) which is an interesting playground due to its diversified terrain.

Akoya, new MGM residence

MGM has been established in Valmorel for 10 years and is attached to this resort which is one of the most beautiful in the French Alps. Family-friendly, dynamic and authentic, this privileged destination is home to two MGM developments: La Grange des Fées and Anitéa. At the beginning of this year, the Haute-Savoie builder unveils its new creation: Résidence Akoya. This top-of-the-range development, which will include 32 flats from 40 to 120 m2, will be located at the entrance to the resort, a stone's throw from the main pedestrian street and the ski lifts. Its sophisticated architecture, in keeping with its environment, pays tribute to the alpine world. Each home will benefit from large, warm, comfortable and welcoming living spaces. Directly integrated into the residence, a wellness area (swimming pool, sauna, hammam, hot tubs) will delight future owners and their guests looking for a relaxing stay. Delivery scheduled for 2024!
