"The Stash" eco-friendly snowpark
In 2008, Avoriaz imported "The Stash", a new-generation snowpark that brought the ultimate outdoor experience to Europe
The "Stash" is an import from California inspired by the "North Star" resort.
Its concept was developed by the big name in snowboarding, BURTON.
The man himself, Jake Burton, was impressed by the reputation of Avoriaz, the resort that was the driving force behind the development of snowboarding and devoted an entire area to the discipline.
Ever since, Burton has deemed Avoriaz to be the one and only resort capable of carrying off a project of this scale.
BURTON & AVORIAZ 1800 PARTNERS SINCE 2003
THE STASH is a forest snowpark for FREERIDERS and FREESTYLERS, who are encouraged to protect the environment.
for parents and children looking to ride the snow together in a safe environment dedicated to both these disciplines.
The "Stash" was born of Jake Burton's observation that there were no facilities for "seniors" who had been freeriding for twenty years or so and now wanted to come along with their family of freestyle fans.
An authentic encounter with nature in a safe environment.
Located amid a vast expanse of ungroomed slopes of virgin snow just waiting for you to trace curves in the powder.
Dotted with hidden timber modules that you'll come across as you explore these "secret trails".
3 slopes for different levels - INTERMEDIATE / EXPERT / BOARDERCROSS - which join up half-way down and lead to a cabin hidden among the pines, before separating again to wind their way discreetly through the forest.
The cabin is something of a communication hub, spreading its non-moralistic message inviting us to limit our impact on the environment.
The Cabin is also a place to rest or enjoy a picnic.
You can even leave your own message by carving it into the wood.
Skiers and snowboarders can come with their instructors or by their own means, on the lifts for THE STASH indicated on the piste map.
Ideal for parents and children looking for a safe place to ski together off-piste.
Accessible from the 6-seat Prolays high-speed chairlift included in the Avoriaz ski pass
OR the "Parks & Stash" ski pass
