In Arcachon, a coastal town on the Bay of Biscay, a ski area was created on a sand dune in 1938. The surface of the 250 meter long alpine slope and also of the ski jump were laid out with pine needles so that they could be used all year round! The idea came from Mr. Harlé, President of the Bordeaux Ski Club. From 1947 to 1970, the French Ski Association even held official ski races there, usually on the first Sunday in September. Due to an accident, the ski lift, which was built in 1963, was closed in 1970 and later dismantled. An association has been trying to revive the extraordinary ski area since 2006 - unfortunately without success so far.
