As any avid ski enthusiast knows, ski holidays are not just about shredding powder each day. After a long day on the slopes and once the sun goes down, there is nothing better than soaking up the atmosphere at the resort and mingling with other powder hounds.

One of the best places for events and après ski is, unquestionably, the famous resort of La Plagne in the Paradiski region. In my humble opinion, it is the best pick of the resorts for a group of lads looking for fun and adventure – this is because it has all kinds of fun activities that you might not normally try at home. Additionally, it boasts fantastic ac-commodation, so you can also spend time unwinding/nursing a hangover in your chalet. La Plagne has plenty of entertainment to choose from each night, but the some of the best events take place in a lively venue named Splitting Feathers.

Splitting Feathers is a brand new bar, which is conveniently located at the entrance to Plagne Bellecôte. It has an electric atmosphere every night of the week and a huge se-lection of beers, spirits, soft drinks, hot drinks and food – everything you could need after an exhilarating day on the mountain! Here are a few of the best ways to let loose in this venue.

Karaoke

Sink a few beers for some courage and then get up on stage and sing your heart out with your mates. The great thing about karaoke on holiday is that you’ll never see your audience again, so there’s no need to hold back. This is a barrel of laughs and most per-formers do not take themselves seriously, but keep in mind that the prize for best singer is a bottle of champagne. So get practising beforehand in your chalet! La Plagne’s greatest karaoke act is just waiting to be found…

Pub Quiz

Put your heads together or perhaps split into different teams for the brilliant pub quiz, which will put your trivia knowledge to the test. This is an excellent way to unwind and soak up the warm and friendly atmosphere inside Splitting Feathers, as everyone gets involved and the excitement can escalate rather quickly. There are also superb prizes from a few of the local businesses, such as a free trip on the Tyrolean Zip Wire. What’s more, this is an opportunity to sample the bar’s “resort-famous” home-made curry or to share a plate of nachos.

Bingo

This is not like the bingo your nan plays! Bingo in Splitting Feathers takes the typically quite sedate game and ramps it up a few levels by offering free shots for lines and house. You are sure to walk/stagger away from the bar, feeling very merry and description. Again, bingo is a great time to order some food from the bar and sample the wide range of booze that’s available (there may even be some ale on draft).

I love Splitting Feathers in La Plagne, as there is such a fun vibe and there are so many activities on offer. Of course, there are also plenty of other options in and around the area, which are easily accessible from your chalet. La Plagne has a lot to offer for young groups, and fun times are easy to find!
