Are you a nature lover or fan of the great outdoors?
THIS YEAR, AVORIAZ AIMS TO DEVELOP FURTHER STILL ITS APPEAL TO CROSS-COUNTRY SKIERS THANKS TO THE SPLITBOARD
TWO TRACKS FOR CROSS-COUNTRY ONLY
Avoriaz boasts two tracks devoted entirely to cross-country skiing. From Place Jean Vuarnet or the bottom station of the Prodains Express cable car, they'll take you up to the legendary Arare ridge!
A NATURAL EXPERIENCE: THE SPLIT BOARD
Looking for virgin territory, wide-open spaces, snow-covered mountains and snowboard descents through the powder? Then try the splitboard. This immensely pleasurable discipline has recently become more accessible.
First, you split your snowboard into a pair of skis before heading off uphill.
Your new "skis" are fitted with "skins" that grip to the slope on the way up. It'll take a few hours to reach the top, where you'll stop for a break and a snack. Then, you'll follow your guide for the best snowboard descent of your life in an unspoilt environment without a ski lift in sight.
ALONE OR ACCOMPANIED
Follow the signposts from the bottom or top station of the Prodain Express cable car (yellow posts).
You can rent equipment from our sports shops. Remember to take a snack or a flask of hot tea with you.
If you prefer to be supervised, book a guide at one of the outlets listed below.
Have fun! :-)
