If you prefer spending Easter in the snow and your festivals at high altitude, then a trip to La Plagne in the French Alps is recommended for Subli’Cimes (3rd – 15th April)  a FREE festival taking place across six mountain peaks showcasing six different experiences.

As far as activities Subli’Cimes has something for everyone: the adrenalin junkie, the beauty enthusiast, and those seeking a sense of wellbeing.

Adrenalin junkies can test their nerves with freefall – jump from a pod of variable height and land safely on an inflatable mattress. Thrill seekers are pushed further with The Ejector – imagine a backwards bungee jump; The Ejector sends you into the air facing Mont Blanc, you then feel a brief feeling of weightlessness immediately followed by a falling sensation.

Beauty enthusiasts can remain ‘on fleek’ courtesy of the Silvya Terrade beauty salon, a barber space and body painting and temporary tattoo service.SubliCime-1

A corner dedicated to the sensual art of burlesque is also featured alongside the beauty squad.

After the thrill seeking and physical pampering, balance is restored in the Zen space –where you can treat yourself to a relaxing massage with physiotherapy school students, in addition to taking a Jacuzzi and sauna. The Deco Zen offers thematic workshops including: tai chi, gi gong, stretching, yoga and relaxation therapy.

Children are also catered to and will enjoy a host of activities and entertainment including the carousel, fire juggler and a magician.

Not forgetting the skiers after all La Plagne is a ski resort, skiers, whether amateur or advanced can take advantage; although it is a little late in the season, there is still ‘good’ snow to be accessed.SubliCime-44
