One hidden gem is the early morning "First Tracks" excursion with the pisteurs. It does involve getting up early, but the jolly breakfast and opportunity to ski with the experts before the lifts open is well worth it. For one account click here. The next one is this Thursday, 26th February.
Monday sees ski rando coming to the front de neige at Charvet, in the form of an hour-long teams-of-two-relay race. You used to only be able to rent equipment at Christina Sports in 1600, but its popularity seems to be growing somewhat: for example, skis and skins are now available for hire at the shop by the mini market in Arc 1800.
