The Rugby and the Mountain share multiple values: taste for effort, solidarity, joy of living and celebrating sport and victory together… and are both the favorite sports and leisure activities of the French people. It was natural to associate them and to mix these positive universes.
Yann DELAIGUE, former international of Rugby and organizing member of the Tournaments of Beach Rugby of Bercy, Toulouse, Marseille and Sainte Maxime, has created with his partners of PIXMA Vent, Stéphane ROUAULT and Eric Laurent, a new shape of rugby, "Snow Rugby".
For 6 days, from February 26th till March 3rd, 2013, school period in France, and week of rest of the Tournament of 6 Nations, 12 stars of the Rugby, are going to ski, to coach and to play with the teams trained by 6 big French Ski resorts: Menuires, Val Thorens, La Plagne, Valmorel, Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc and Clusaz.
