Federación de Deportes de Invierno del Principado de Asturias (FDIPA) | 20 January 2013
90 Event Participants
FDIPA celebrated the World Snow Day at both asturian ski resorts Fuentes de Invierno and Valgrande-Pajares.
On Saturday, Fuentes de Invierno held a special day of ski and visitors were able to enjoy a forfait and a package of lessons at a reduced fee. A parallel descent by teams had been scheduled but, unfortunately, this activity had to be cancelled due to bad weather conditions. A ‘panel of visits’ was installed so that people could place a meesage about this annual global snow event. All these activities organized by FDIPA were completed with special menus and disccounts in accomodation for the weekend.
On Sunday, it was Valgrande-Pajares ski resort turn. FDIPA organized a gymkhana for children where they had to face up with several races: sleigh-pulling between sticks, ball-carrying with a pair of cross-country skis and many others. All teams were awarded for their participation in this activity and finally children, families and FDIPA crew enjoyed a hot chocolate and toasted bread.
It was a great weekend at both ski resorts. From FDIPA, we would like to thank all those people who took part in the activities, both children and families as well as all the volunteers who helped FDIPA to make this World Snow Day possible. We hope to have even more participants enjoying the activities next year and to have good weather conditions for them to be held.
FDIPA invites everybody to come to Asturias next year to celebrate the 2014 World Snow Day in January. We are already looking forward to it.
