Le Valinouët

What is the Leucan Ski Challenge? It’s hours of ski or snowboarding and several activities at Le Valinouët on March 25, 2023 from 9 am to 9 pm, but more specifically it’s a gesture of solidarity towards cancer-stricken children and their families. It’s also a fun, participative and family-oriented opened to people of all ages.
