Take part in the local Savoyard culture! This year, due to the health situation, the 16th Avaline Fair will not take place (and is being postponed until next year), but Val d’Isère and the Union of Traders are offering a new event in the heart of Val d’Isère: “The Alpine Craftsmen and Producers’ Market”.
“The Alpine Craftsmen and Producers’ Market” will take place on 1 and 2 August 2020, hosting about 30 exhibitors from Savoie and Haute Savoie, and will be held in accordance with health recommendations.
. . .
As every year, this major street market will brighten up the resort. It’s an opportunity to come and do business with your favourite traders.
When? 15 August
- The Tour de l’Avenir
Come and cheer on our national runners on the slopes of Val d’Isère. 26 national teams of six runners in the “up-and-coming” category under the age of twenty-three. Part of the UCI Europe Tour (category 2.Ncup) and the UCI U23 Nations Cup, the racing lasts 10 days.
The Tour de l’Avenir meets the need to discover the champions of tomorrow in all areas of the game. After a tough start with the time trial on the slopes, the Savoyard event continues with two high-mountain stages with the difficult Col de Chaussy and Col du Mollard, on the eve of the final event. And it’s all to play for right until the last day, since there’s still a giant to face with the Col d’Iseran (alt. 2764 m), which has to be crossed before the final climb to the resort of Les Arcs 1800 as its final conclusion.
When? 19 August
We hope you all have a great summer, filled with joy and new experiences!
