Ski Festival Guide 2017

The OOSC Ski Festival Guide 2017

Here at OOSC we like to pride ourselves on knowing where to find Europe’s best Apres-ski. To step things up a little we wanted to fill you in on the best European Mountain Festivals, some are still to come, some have gone for this season, but one thing is for sure – this year at your Ski Festival of choice, get your Ski Suits and Après Jackets primed and strap yourself in for a big one!

POLARIS

The main stage of this electro beast is at mountain restaurant Mouton Noir, at the top of the Medran chairlift. Tickets in her inaugural year were capped at 1000 making this a truly intimate affair. Take in the breath taking views with some banging techno beats, then when things wrap up on the mountain they definitely carry on into the wee hours down in the town at Etoile Rouge!
