read befor you travel to Anncey ...

"In the northern French Alps, between Chambéry and Geneva, Annecy is undeniably became what might be called a paradise of skiing. Why? Quite simply because it is possible to surf on both the water and snow. the dream, especially for the thrill, which refused to increasingly restrict itself to a single discipline, and landscapes similar. A Annecy and in the very near region, they there have actually embarra choice. The lake deemed to be the purest in Europe When one speaks Annecy, how, firstly, not to think about its lake, with a length of fourteen kilometers and a perimeter of thirty-eight. It is reputed to be the purest in Europe, because of the clarity and cleanliness of its depths. Many appreciate therefore find out aboard a boat, or the board, a fishing rod in hand. Relaxation guaranteed. Others prefer, as mentioned above, use this vast expanse of water to practise their favourite sports on the theme of surfing. Wakeskate, wakeboard, barefoot In traditional ski Boating, which was, in part, the reputation of Annecy, and to a lesser degree the windsurfing added now many other disciplines. Examples wakeboarding: it is towed by a boat l 'with a rope fitted with a rudder and uses a board resembling a surfboard or snowboard. It takes advantage of the wave generated by wakes to jump on both sides of the latter and make different figures (perilous jumps , Rotations, etc.).. These figures are based on sports like snowboarding, surfing or skateboarding. Incredibly impressive to see. There is also the wakeskate, sport derived from where the accident but did not feet attached to the board, which is also shorter. Very spectacular too. Finally, the barefoot offers less… chatouilleux practise water skiing, but without skis! Nu-foot, the skier is pulled in more than 20 metres behind the boat., tell the fans of the game of words. The Dragon Boat, for rowing on a wild pace For those who enjoy skiing but at a high pace months, the possibilities are as numerous and varied, with the classic kayak, or single-seaters And the Dragon Boat, ancient craft that is practiced in the Bay of Hong Kong and which owes its name to the giant dragon head adorning its bow. The boat twelve metres for three hundred kilos fend water pace rhythmic drum. He asked members of his crew great discipline and regularity in the exemplary handling of the train. From the snow to less than 20 kilometers Again, Annecy, or rather its very close region, allows fans slip, when they finished with water, to meet with snow. indeed, not far is the Regional Nature Park and the Bauges Massif des Aravis. Bauges Park, located south of Lake Annecy, has many original activities such as skiing joering (ski pulled by a horse) or a ballad sleds. What a drag looking animal while discovering a fantastic landscape. Otherwise, just 40 minutes to enter the ski area in the Massif des Aravis (Grand Bornand, Saint Jean de Sixt, La Clusaz, Manigod, Merdassier, la Croix Fry) and Bauges (Sambuy, Semnoz, only 17 kilometres from Annecy, the plateau Grand Revard, known for its attendance of his cross-country skiing, one of the most visited France, Margeriaz, Aillons). So surfers and other lovers of extreme sensations, sports performance, or silky slip and joyful, n 'Hésitez more: the Annecy you tend arms. And because the opportunities there are very many, impossible to wipe several setbacks, unless they are pursued by the curse of surfers (!), Tell it yourself.
