Flaine is taking advantage of International Women's Day March 8 to host the fifth annual Girl Session - a week-long event dedicated to today's active woman.

Girl Session runs from March 5 to 11 and include a variety of events just for the ladies.

A different activity or event is held each day of the week:

Monday offers a snow-sculpting contest with a reward for the prettiest creation.

Tuesday is International Women's Day and women who ski at Flaine will get a free rose. On a more athletic note, a special biathlon will be organised in the afternoon from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. After showing off their sporty side, women can have fun at the giant karaoke that evening that will go on from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Wednesday night the group 3 Aliens Rocked will perform a live concert accompanied by fireworks and a sound and light show. The events end Thursday with a Big Air Bag Contest.

Many shops, bars, and restaurants of Flaine are also participating in Girl Session. Look for the logo on the establishment's door-it lets you know that ladies will be treated to discounts, free samples, and other special offers.
