    For the last 25 years the crazy “Défi Foly” sees sportsmen and women competing on skis, mono skis, snow boards, or anything that slides(!)
    Nothing different about that, you may think, but the event does not take place on snow. The aim is to slide the longest distance over the Confins Lake! Since 1986, 150 slightly crazy competitors compete each year in front of 1000s of spectators who come to watch this spectacular and exhilarating show.

    The star attraction of this day of fun and frolics has to be the OGNI event, otherwise known as Unidentified Floating Objects (UFOs!), floating inventions right out of the imagination of those crazy enough to participate. These elaborate inventions provide a hilarious end to the event, as the spectators witness their sometimes catastrophic descent into the icy waters of the Confins Lake in the exceptional surroundings of the Confins, overlooked by the magnificents combs of the Aravis.
