Combat des Reines

07 September 2011

Ski News by Skiweekends.com, experts in ski weekends and ski weeks across the French Alps.


On the 25th September, Les Houches will host the local tradition of cow fighting. Although this sounds barbaric, there are no enraged bulls or matadors. The spectacle is a tradition that has originated from allowing the cows to fight to establish a peaking order. The cows are sorted into age and weight and then two are put in a ring to battle it out... although it's not quite as action packed as boxing and normally has at least a few mins break whilst the cows eat grass, the rural atmosphere and crowds of people make the evening fun. There's also normally a bit of Yodelling some Alpine horns and some local food to taste. If your looking to do something a bit different with your holiday time why not go skiing, the French Alps are perfect for skiing with many world class resorts... With Ski Weekends you can get a fantastic ski weekend or ski week away at an even better price. Our most popular ski resorts are: Meribel, Morzine and Chamonix.
