Jenny Jones to Attend British Celebration Week in Les Arcs

Jenny Jones, Britain’s most successful snowboarder, will be in the high altitude, panoramic ski resort of Les Arcs, in the Paradiski ski region of France for British Celebration Week.

Les Arcs welcomes 110,000 visitors each winter, of which 45% are British, hence the Celebration.


The Great British Celebration, 24-30 March

The Great British Celebration started last season, created by Michel Giraudy, the Mayor of Les Arcs & Bourg Saint Maurice.

Now in its second year, it has grown but the aim remains the same: to reassure British skiers and snowboarders, that despite the Brexit vote, they will always be welcome in the mountains, especially in the villages of Les Arcs.

Olympic Medal Winner, Jenny Jones will be attending

Eric Chevalier from Les Arcs recently announced: “We haven’t quite got royalty, as they are busy planning weddings, but Jenny Jones is snowsports royalty.” 

“For a nation that doesn’t have mountains on its doorstep we are always impressed by the numbers from the United Kingdom that take up the sport and the quality of the British skiers and boarders.” 

Like many British skiers Jenny learned to snowboard on the dry and indoor slopes in the UK before heading to France to pursue her dream of becoming a professional rider.


Yoga with Jenny Jones

A few lucky visitors will be able to share a yoga session and lunch with Jenny before she heads to to the snow park, where she will ride with some of Team Les Arcs and chat to fans. 

During British Celebration Week the whole resort will adopt the colours of the Union Jack and host Franco-British challenges including football tournaments, speed skiing, street golf and a sledging competition.

There will also be be DJs, a pyjama party and slope-side fondue with more activities on and off the slopes.
