Why Rock the Pistes?

Rock the Pistes is the kind of event we adore. A unique, high-altitude music festival where you can get on the powder early in the morning, chase rock in the afternoon and go on the piste in the evening.

Nestléd high in The Alps, between the Swiss and French border, sits Portes du Soleil, where heavenly mountain scenery provides oodles of pure white, perfect powdery snow. Every year, a host of rock bands, performers and DJs rock the pistes as 28,000 happy hedonistic skiers make the slopes their own with a seven-day celebration of love, life, music, ski and fondue.

And the best part? It’s free… kind of.

What’s going down at Rock the Pistes?

In addition to you going down the slopes courtesy of a day’s ski-pass, this year there will be more than 50 après-ski concerts. Performers include Hyphen Hyphen, Charlie Winston, Gaetan Roussel, Ofenbach DJ Set and many many more. 

There's also stunning accommodation at Portes du Soleil’, 7-day ski-passes and VIP packages are available. Plus, there’s a two-day, two-country treasure hunt will have you searching for hidden markers in both France and Switzerland - for the chance to win ski-passes. Oh, and did we mention fondue? Expect lots of hot cheese!

This avalanche of artistry is a music festival like no other in Europe, and all you need to see the gigs is your lift-pass. In other words, for the price of a day on the slopes, you get the concerts and all the fun of the festival gratis.

In Short:

  • Stay and ski in beautiful Portes du Soleil
  • Ski between 50 après-ski concerts from international artists
  • Massive, two-day, two-country treasure hunt with prizes
  • Rock the Pistes - pure snow + pure sound = 100% pleasure!
