The Kandahar in Chamonix in 2016
For those who like to ski, lovers of Chamonix and its pistes, this is the moment to launch yourselves into a combined skiing event and prepare yourselves for the slopes! In February 2016, the Kandahar is returning to the valley of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc to host two events. As part of the Alpine Skiing World Cup 2016, you will witness the Men’s Downhill, and Alpine Combined Downhill and Slalom on the Verte des Houches.
The Alpine Combined constitutes the essence of Kandahar races that have always crowned the most complete skiers in the downhill and slalom disciplines. The Valley of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc will therefore host two events on the ” Verte des Houches “: an Alpine Combined and a Men’s Downhill, each counting towards the downhill and combined events of the World Cup. Come along from 17 to 20 February, when thrills are guaranteed! Especially seeing as the “Verte des Houches” is not a green run! Bordered by fir trees, it’s an icy slope which takes on a green tint when the sun shines – it’s simply formidable.
The Hotel du Jeu de Paume welcomes the US team!
It goes without saying that after a skier races a distance of 3,343 metres that includes a total descent of 870 metres in 2 minutes, he needs to rest and be taken care of. The Hotel du Jeu de Paume Chamonix is proud to count the US team among its guests on the occasion of this legendary competition: the skiers will be able to soothe their muscles while enjoying the benefits of a dip in our swimming pool, relax in our jacuzzi and enjoy a massage at our spa! As for you, all you have to do to join us is make a reservation. And even if you are a family and you’re not too keen on skiing down a real green run – very easy … we will also take care of you!
