esf races to time your performance
flèche & chamois
Flèche and Chamois races are organised throughout the season in Val Cenis by our instructors. These races will give you the chance to surpass yourself and beat the clock! During the school holidays, there are 2 Flèche races (Wednesday and Friday), and a Chamois race on Thursday. In term time, the races go ahead if we have a minimum of participants. 
  • Chamois: slalom race (30-40 gates over 120 to 200 m altitude, the opener clocks around 30 seconds),
  • Flèche: giant slalom race (25-35 gates over 200 to 250 m altitude, the opener clocks around 32 seconds). 

Performance of each race is calculated according to the percentage of the opener; up to 17% more than the opener = Gold, 35% = Vermeil, 55% = Silver, 75% = Bronze, 80 % = Flechette or Cabri depending on the race. 

Sign up the day before the race, at the esf Val Cenis offices (or online, through the French side of the website).
