If you’re looking for somewhere to party for New Years Eve in the French Alps, here are 5 hip and happening alpine parties to welcome 2017 in style.
1. Folie Douce- Val d’Isère & Tignes | Courchevel & Mèribel
Get the party started on the piste and end your last ski of 2016 at the iconic Folie Douce. Dotted across the French Alps from Val d’Isère & Tignes to Courchevel & Mèribel in the 3 Vallèes- Folie Douce is no ordinary Après Ski experience. From the 3-5pm the mountain will rock with an eclectic mix of cabaret, live music and DJ sets as people take to the tables to dance in their ski boots. To fully understand what is Folie you can only experience it and New Year’s craziness is surely the best introduction you can have.
It doesn’t get more chic than a masquerade party at Dick Teas Bar in Val d’Isère. In fact, this place defines cool – oozing style in bucket loads. Housing a trendy crowd of hipsters, the energy is buzzing with a feel good mood igniting an electric atmosphere. The allure of what is behind the mask adds a sexy twist to this already swarve bar, which is bound to illicit a few midnight kisses.

Doors will open at 10.30pm with tickets sold on the door for€50; or pre-purchase tickets for €30 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All VIP tables are sold out.
If you are looking for an unforgettable party to welcome in the New Year, then Courchevel’s Open Air New Years Dance Party is the place to be. Live entertainment will kick off around 9pm- carrying the crowd through to midnight. As the clock strikes 12 Courchevel– the mountain queen of fireworks- will light up the sky with an explosion of colour. Dance the night away to an epic DJ tunes until morning comes and the first sun of the new year peaks from behind the mountains.
Free Entry… just follow the crowd!

From the glamorous likes of Courchevel and Val d’Isère’s to the craziness of club Le Paradis, Morzine. This club was originally opened in the Seventies by Madame Laury, an exotic dancer from the Moulin Rouge. Far from it’s saucy roots this happening club still knows how to party…. Just with a little less raunch and a whole lot more cheese.
But when in the Alps, embrace your inner euro-vision pop star and go with it! You will journey from on top of the mountains to beneath the sea for the biggest and most nautical, sub-aquatic party the Alps has ever seen. Expect bubble machines, jellyfish shooters, confetti, inflatables, lifeguards and a dress-up photo booth. Party all night long until 6am to a mix of disco, house, hip-hop & DnB party tunes.
Surely this much craziness must be experienced at least once!
