The Big Breakfast at The Spot will help you recover while secret cheesey music lovers will be excited by the Nostalgia Takeovers at Mini Bar, and as if all that isn’t enough The Genepi Cave at Sylvain’s and The Rise Hub at Saloon provide further places to explore, enjoy and escape to.
There is so much to do at Rise away from skiing and dancing you won’t be able to pack everything in, but will certainly enjoy some brand new experiences. This might include The Snow Games hosted by Team GB athletes which sees fun-seeking competitors and overzealous contenders laugh and fall amongst the snowy terrain all in the name of great entertainment.
