Rossignol has set up a system for virtual skiing at its fancy Parisian store on rue des Capucines. A simulator perches virtual skiers 2,100m up on the Villard-Reculas piste of a French ski resort, the Alpe d’Huez, which is currently closed as are all the others because of the coronavirus epidemic. From there they proceed to the Souveraine piste and the Langaret flats, feeling cold air on their cheek along the way. The ride lasts about two minutes and provides a 360-degree view over the snow-capped mountains. The simulator opened on Dec. 21 and will close at the end of February. It is free of charge for anyone above the age of eight but available only by reservation (at rossignol.simplybook.it).
