Fancy Attending a New Year’s Eve Party from a Ski Resort?

Val Thorens is turning up the dials for a virtual one from the slopes. It normally hosts a huge celebration with 10,000 in the resort. It is not to be this year, so it’s doing its best.
The Summit Mix will see three top DJ’s each play a one-hour set in the best locations in the resort.
It runs from 21h30 to 00h30 on December 31, 2020.
The concept is simple: create and film live music from 21h30 to 00h30 and share it ‘live’ over the Internet with Val Thorens fans on New Year’s Eve.
“Everyone can start 2021 by dancing virtually together listening to typical Val Thorens beats, made even more beautiful by the snowy peaks in the background,” said the resort in Les3Vallees.
- DJ Mike (Resident DJ at 360 bar) – At the top of Cime Caron (3,200m)
- DJ Lawik (Resident DJ at Malaysia Club) – At the cross point of all slopes
- Vendredi Duo (sax player and tam tam) – At the departure of the Cime Caron lift
“This is the closest we’ll get to the ‘Made in Val Thorens’ après-ski vibe for a while given the ongoing restrictions in France because of Covid-19.”
Aurélien Astre, Events Manager at Val Thorens says, “New Year’s Eve has been a fun and unmissable night in Val Thorens for ages,” said Aurélien Astre, Events Manager at Val Thorens.
“Given we can’t unite the 5,000 to 10,000 people this year who would have normally celebrated the festivities in the resort, we’ve organised for our best DJs to perform which we’ll stream using FaceBook Live.
“This will help get the celebrations really going and bring a little bit of Val Thorens and mountains to everyone’s homes.”
Here at PlanetSKI we’ll be tuning in… lets hope this time next year we can be in the resort in person:
