Defi Foly at Lac des Confins with ALPY

Updated: May 9

Are you ready for the thrill of the Defi Foly? Scheduled for April 20 to 21, 2024, at Lac des Confins, this extraordinary event invites participants to compete in covering the longest distance on skis, monoski, snowboard, or any slippery device after an exhilarating launch down a steep snowy slope.

The Defi Foly Challenge: A Spectacular Alpine Tradition

Since its inception in 1987, the Defi Foly Challenge has become a staple event, gathering 150 participants and attracting thousands of enthusiastic spectators to Les Confins. The breathtaking setting offers a snowy slope for launches, a 180-meter-wide glacial lake to conquer, and a natural amphitheater that showcases awe-inspiring views of the majestic Aravis mountain range.

With over 31 editions, every participant has yet to manage to conquer the entire 180 meters of the lake. This event promises more than just daring slides – revel in the excitement of races and spectacular splashes. You can also enjoy free shows, live concerts, carnival parades, and other entertaining activities. Be sure to join in the festivities!

Stretching across 25 kilometers from Cluses to Ugine, the Aravis mountain chain stands as a stunning backdrop. To the east, it borders the Val d'Arly, while on its western side, it faces the ski areas of Grand Bornand, La Clusaz, and Manigod. The grandeur and expanse of this mountain chain make for a spectacular setting for the Defi Foly Challenge.

However, remember that the event is subject to mountain weather conditions. In case of insufficient snow cover, a frozen lake, or unfavorable winds that could potentially affect the safety of spectators or participants, the event might be canceled. We recommend checking with the organizers regarding the event's status on the same day to avoid any inconvenience.
