Volcom Hot Spot // Les 2 Alpes

Winter is on its way and we can’t wait to be on the top of the mountains. This week, Yannick and his team from the Volcom Store in the ski resort Les Deux Alpes, introduce you to their resort by sharing their favorite places.

 

Les Deux Alpes could be called a small paradise for snowboarders. The ski area is huge and you can ride almost all year round thanks to its high altitude glacier at 3600m. Park rats will without doubt find happiness with one of the best snowparks in France. For freeriders, the off-piste areas offer many great opportunities. Snowboarding is one thing. But Les Deux Alpes will also not let you down with the party life, offering you entertainment night and day. To make a long story short, there is something for everyone here. 

 

Where to eat ?

If you think a ski resort can’t accommodate a true gourmet restaurant? The Raisin d’Ours will prove you wrong, every day in the winter season. You can expect the most passionate food there. The place offers a warm atmosphere and the team will surely put you at ease. The greediest will enjoy different dishes of fish and meat. But will leave it to you to discover the menu.

 

Casa Nostra: this Corsican restaurant will take you to the top. At the heart of the resort, Casa Nostra can be describe as the official ambassador of the beautiful island that is Corsica. You’ll be welcomed into a nice house with exposed stone, giving it an authentic vibe. It’s the perfect place to taste fine wines while enjoying tapas. To be honest, 98% of the menu can be claimed to be the truly "homemade". You can even take a look at the many bottles of Corsican wines as the winery is open to the room.

casa nostra

For a Savoyard and traditional cuisine, but always delicious, go to “La Porte d’à Coté”. On the main street of the resort, you can’t miss “La Porte d’à Coté” which actually means “the door to the side”. That name because the lovely couple Nikki and Frank are the owners of The Windsor pub adjacent to the restaurant. Thus, we can go directly from a deckchair on the solarium of the pub to a chair on the terrace of the restaurant to extend the pleasure of being in the heart of the resort. All wrapped up in a relaxed atmosphere explained with two words: woody and cowhide.

 

At the Tribeca, all of the furniture came from second hand market. On the walls are family's photos and some of unforgettable evenings, cause when it goes mad here it goes crazy! You will find a large sun terrace to enjoy your meal and perfect your tan.

 

Smithy's Tavern is known for offering fantastic food in the upstairs Char-grill restaurant to rocking nights in the bar dowstairs. Here, there's no doubt that you will find a nice restaurant experience or a full on party night.

 

Maybe you are looking for a slightly more gourmet cuisine in an authentic atsmophere? Le Chalet Mounier will please you. Here is the Michelin-starred highest restaurant of the Isère since it's at an altitude of 1650m.

 

Where to have a drink / party?

From 3pm onwards you can plan to take a break at Pano Bar, located at 2600 meters. For two hours, the most party loving riders come to dance to the electro mix of the resident DJ. A glass of champagne or a shot of vodka will help you recover from the last slope. If you want to be lazey around a bottle, you can find a VIP area for more private chilling. The view across the valley is sublime. Take off your coat, up on the table and enjoy the electrifying atmosphere. Pano Bar closes at 5pm for a final descent to the station.

It’s too early to go home so let’s continue at the bottom of the slopes. Forget the change or the shower and go directly to the Umbrella Bar. The place takes its name from the huge umbrella that unfolds over the bar to turn the bar into an improvised tent. A large terrace is also available for the less chilly. Cocktails can be enjoyed in a musical atmosphere that mixes electronic music and hits.

Royal! Normal for Windsor, a historical figure of Les Deux Alpes, since it is the last bar that still exist after opening together with the station 20 years ago. This royal house will please those who want to find the best pub atmosphere in this Alpine resort. A very nice pub with banknotes from everywhere glued to the ceiling. All ages and all nationalities intersect with the same happiness no matter what your cup might contain. They have a great selection of beers and whiskeys so you’ll have reason to keep going back for a new one. Also worth mentioning is that you can go to this address early in the morning for a perfect English breakfast before hitting the slopes.

 

Motown Café welcomes you every day from 8am to 2am in a elegant, friendly and warm atmosphere. If you like to listen to Soul, Jazz or Funk, you should go there and enjoy a free plate of tapas with your aperitif after 6pm. The sun lounge is open until 5pm.

 

After all the raclette and fondue, it might be time to loose a few calories on the dance floor of the Avalanche, the nightclub of Les Deux Alpes. Run by the same team as the Pano Bar during the day. The sets tend to be quite focused on electronic music and so it runs until 5am with seasonal tourists setting the mood on the dance floor and around the bar.

Where to stay true to this?

Don’t hesitate to ask the team at the Volcom store for the best riding spots!

If you want to try something new, it’s possible to be dropped off by helicopter for the day at l’Alpe d'Huez (the adjacent station) from Les 2 Alpes for a reasonable price.

 

Then last but not least –Take a ride through the Volcom Store of Les Deux Alpes and update your wardrobe with some of the season’s new arrivals.

Last weekend 20 motivated girls came to the Kitzsteinhorn for the elooa GIRLS BALANCE CAMP presented by VOLCOM. Also present were next to the elooa crew, a yoga teacher, a professional photographer as well as a filmmaker and the pro riders Mary Luggen & Ana Rumiha. After check-in the camp started with a yoga session into the weekend. Super motivated and well equipped with new Nitro Snowboards everbody went to the glacier on Saturday. After an extensive warm up and a few runs through the resort the girls practiced freestyle basics first before a perfectly shaped snowpark was waiting. Together with the coaches and the pro girls everybody practiced intensively all day and learned new tricks. In the afternoon we went back to our hotel, the Active by Leitner ́s 4* hotel that had all lot to offer: holiday galore! After coffee and cake a one hour yoga session with Anna Kathalina followed and before dinner everyone could recover in the spa area. After a very delicious and healthy dinner the day ended with an intense video coaching for all participants. On the final Sunday all campers went back to the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn to implement the new tips of the pros and elooa coaches directly. The weather was still kind of inconsistant but we had sunshine all day. After numerous runs and a lot of new tricks in the bag an eventful weekend came to an end. The elooa crew would like to thank all participants, the sponsors, the hotel Active by Leitner ́s and the Kitzsteinhorn for an amazing camp. We are looking forward to more elooa GIRLS CAMPS in 2017.

The weather forecasts are firing, your crew is blowing you up, and the weekend shred getaway is dialed in! Now the serious question: what are you going to pack?! Some of the biggest things that can make or break that perfect day of shredding is how you prepare for the conditions and a little knowledge into what to expect. As we all know, you aren’t going to last long nuking pow day showing up to the chairlift in just a hoodie, or getting stuck sweating it out in that heavy down jacket during warm spring conditions. Making good outerwear decisions is crucial! So, to help you out, we had a few of the Volcom Snow team riders breakdown their favorite gear to wear during their hometown weekend shred sessions! "If you were to take a trip to Les 2 Alpes in December, you know you could encounter some of the coldest days of the winter and hopefully big snow falls. The bottom of the resort is at 1600 meters and rises up to 3200 meters where some of the best off-post runs are already in good conditions. To make sure I spend a long day out, I usually pick a combo of Gore-Tex Overall and Jacket. Also, the best option if you want to go straight from the snow to the après ski is dry underwear!" - Arthur Longo Shop Arthur's Winter Weekend Essentials Stone GORE-TEX® Jacket Rain GORE-TEX® Overall Base Layer Crew Base Layer Pant SFD Powder Mitt Sweep Lined Beanie More Winter Weekend Essentials Scott Blum Bryan Iguchi Pat Moore Arthur Longo Elena Hight Marcus Kleveland Shop All Snow Outerwear

# VolcomRepublique Celebration!
    Last Saturday our boys Axel Cruysberghs and Victor Pellegrin cruised to Place de La Republique in Paris with a good portion of the scene, from the local kids to national heavy hitters such as Charles Collet, Joseph Garbaccio, Ben Garcia and more. The purpose was to celebrate the return of the Volcom granite skate setup in the heart of the French capital. The sun was shining - a perfect to start the afternoon which led to a fun and busy skate session in between the regular Republique weekend folks such as activists demonstrating about Cote–D’Ivoire new government (with a solid PA blasting african rhythms) or the "Nuit Debout" activists... A bunch of tricks got landed, high fives exchanged, and some giveaways were flown to the kids, and it was time to move to the Fluctuat Nec Mergitur cafe, right in the middle of the plaza for some after session beers, music and to announce the results of #VolcomRepublique best line skate contest. Tons of prizes got awarded to some of the many entrants and top 3 got to split the 1500€ prize purse of the contest. The judge panel consisting of David ‘Tura’ Turakiewicz (A Propos Magazine), Fred ‘D’ Demard (Soma skate medicine) and Christian Vankelst (Volcom Team manager) had a tough job picking the winners and in the end Joseph Garbaccio from Le Havre took the win (and the biggest check). Good times! Check the photos and the winning entries below (all photos by Vincent Coupeau) 1st place : Joseph Garbaccio (1000€) 2nd place : Benjamin Garcia (300€) 3rd place : Jonathan Jean-Philippe (200€) Axel fs flip the session was on in the afternoon #volcomrepublique winners Jonathan Jean-Philippe, Benjamin Garcia and Joseph Garbaccio CHECK OUT ALL  #VOLCOMREPUBLIQUE VIDEOS ENTRIES HERE celebration time gearing up Joseph Garbaccio hardflip Axel Cruysberghs bs180 sw five o party on with Vincent Perrin Volcom Jeans and Chinos raffle!

Glaciers opening meat and greet tour!
The Volcom gang was beyond ready for the snow season to start. So they embarked on a 4 stop mission to Glacier openings in the area with some simple goals; shred and get together with all our snowboarding friends and share some good times. Gang Partnering with long time friends Go-Shred, they started with Hintertux on October 1st, following with Kaunertal on October 8, Kitzsteinhorn on the next day then finishing up with Stubai on October 22, setting up on the parking lots with games, music and free BBQs with refreshments after each session to extend the the stoke of the first rides. We met Gigi in STUBAI Hintertux was sunny and felt so good with mellow vibes, Kaunertal was maniac with tons of shredders from all over Europe, and a miniramp was added to the parking lot setup. Fort that last one, Go Shred organized a rad shuttle service from Innnsbruck to Kaunertal including coffee, croissant and a Volcom surprise bag Kitzsteinhorn, which happens to be Volcom partner resort, was absolutely packed.. It was madness in the park, with almost as many riders hiking the park as there were on the T-bar. You can now ride mor than 1200 vertical meters.. Check Kitzsteinhorn.at for live updates Stubai Then the tour finished with the Stubai Glacier opening with a good session on the Friday, and Saturday afternoon we set up at the bottom of the new multi million € Gondola and prepared everything for the smiling guests. With some drinks provided from our partner Jimmy’s bar, music,  finger food, and a big raffle, everyone enjoyed themselves.

Volcom Zip Tech® Jacket-to-Pant System Keeps Snow Out
It's no secret, being cold and wet is the easiest way to ruin a good day on the hill. And let's face it, everyone falls down, slides out, sits on a icy/wet chairlift and so on. It is snowboarding after all, and snow is going to try to find a way up your jacket and down your pants, soaking your base layers making it difficult to regulate your body temperature and in general cause you discomfort. Which is why over a decade ago the design team at Volcom developed the innovative Zip Tech® "zip your jacket to your pants" system for Volcom Outerwear as the first line of defense in keeping your body dry and your stoke high.
