Tignes soap box race

Novelty snow cart race on the slopes above Le Lac
Featured in: Events · Updated


Built a chariot, a car, an x-wing fighter or whatever takes your fancy and enter this crazy soap box race on snow!

This fun competition is a DIY fanatic's dream. Let your imagination run riot and create your own unique snow cart.

Certain criteria must be met; your creation must comprise at least one ski or snowboard, be non-motorised, have a steering system, an effective braking system (your feet don't count!), a rigid floor and a front and a rear towing bar. All team members must also be able to fit inside the finished contraption.

Entrants must present their carts for the judge's inspection by 14:00 on race day in front of the Maison des Tignes. The race starts at 17:00 on the Rosset piste. A prize-giving ceremony will take place afterwards with a party and DJs from 18:30.
