Events such as dinners at high altitude using a snowmobile and snowshoe or ski descents under the moonlight are frequently organized, weather conditions permitting.
Other typical events and traditions of the Aosta Valley attract visitors from all over the world. A few of them are:
The Reine Blanche
The queen of the Cime Bianche, the Great Run of Valtournenche, also known as Reine Blanche (slope number 1). Starting at Piccolo Cervino, at an altitude of 3800m, and ending at the heart of Valtournenche at the beginning of the gondola lift, it is one of the longest ski runs in Europe. The Reine Blanche is about 20 km long and 2300m high and has all the best features that a ski slope should have. Every year at the end of the ski season, an event, called the Reine Blanche, after the name of the track on which it takes place, allows groups of three, such as families or friends, to engage in a race longer than 1,300 meters in altitude from 2850 meters of Bec Carre under the hill of Cime Bianche to the center of Valtournenche at the end of the run at 1500 meters.
The Bataile des Reines
The battle of the cows is an event that takes place in the month of August. Cows, also known as the queens of the mountains, fight among each other in a festival similar to rodeos. At the end of this very popular event, one of the cows is declared the winner.
The Des Arpa
Another popular event is the Des Arpa, the descent of the cows from the mountain pastures, during the last week of September. This is a felt event in the valley, where cows have always been one of the major resources.
