This luxury event invites you to discover some fifty exceptional cars in the heart of a snowy setting in a retro and vintage atmosphere.

Dynamic demonstrations on the snow are also on the program with a very special layout: a track covered with Glice, a surface that reproduces the effect of driving and sliding on ice without having to artificially manufacture it. 

In addition, static exhibitions, activities, retro atmosphere, small hot dishes and all within the charming village of Megève, wedged between the Aravis and the Chamonix valley and will complete the season of French competitions such as those of Chantilly, Dinard, or even The Baule.
