Two little words, one big impact.
University trips know about it, seasonnaires won’t miss it and holiday makers can’t wait for it. This year don your crazy costumes because Méribel is getting ready for the sun, snow and superb aprés – you’ve guessed it… It’s VALLEY RALLY! If you’ve done it, you know it’s a must and if you’ve never experienced one, here’s your chance!
Each year Inghams fly thousands of guests out to enjoy the Alps and return home with plenty of fantastic memories, hilarious photos and even more entertaining stories. So have no fear, this season we’ve got it covered! This year your Méribel Representatives have newly revamped the Valley Rally…
The aim of the game is this: you have a map and a list of challenges with the outcome being somewhat unpredictable yet inevitable hilarious. Grab your friends, family or new chalet pals because as a team you will be competing against other Inghams guests (after coming up with a brill team name, obviously!) You will traverse the Méribel ski area with the goal of completing more challenges than the next team all for Gloating Rights and the chance to win an amazing prize.
So, what will you need I hear you ask? Firstly, you know that fancy dress outfit you wore to a party a few years back… Where is it?! Get it in your suitcase. We’ve had guests dressed as the Super Mario crew; a wedding party (vicar included); the four Power Rangers; a convent of Nuns; a spandex of Superheroes; a blaze of Dragons; many a Pokémon; a whole Penguinery of Penguins and the cast of Game of Thrones. So if you think your outfit is too embarrassing, I assure you – it’s not.
Secondly, a fair bit of stamina and a good sense of humour. The only way you stand to win this foolish day is by going all out and getting stuck in! Humiliation and laughs will be in fair supply… you can expect some blushed faces and not just from your team members. Fellow skiers will undoubtedly double take as you go by and some (fingers crossed) will even get involved – the gondolas will no longer be a quite ride to the peak… Plus, have you ever considered the technical difficulties of a ski Conga line?!
And lastly, some serious dance skills. Getting onto those tables in La Folie Douce isn’t the easiest task, but factor in restrictive clothing and you’ve got yourself into a tricky situation. But if those guys in sequins, 6 inch heels and a saxophone can do it, I have every faith that you can too! No ski trip is complete without some afternoon aprés and in Méribel, you can expect the best in the Three Valleys. Raise your hands to live bands, get yourselves a pitcher of beer and swivel in your ski boots because this Valley Rally is going to take you to the most buzzing bars on the pistes.
We’ve got all the craziness planned and now we’re just waiting for you! Share the laughs and let the good times live on as you check in to each location and challenge with a cheeky tweets of your snaps and selfies. Let your hair down and bring on Winter 15/16!
But most of all, don’t forget to hashtag your #InghamsMeribelValleyRally!
