Avoriaz 1800 snowcross

Free

ride

Skiers and snowboarders are invited to experience the thrills of freestyle and powder snow, in the safety of dedicated, ungroomed slopes

These slopes are actually monitored by the ski patrol who make them safe by artificially triggering avalanches and placing markers at danger spots.

LA FRONTALIÉRE

Length: 1.15 km

This snowboard cross slope starts at the Swiss border at the top of the Mossettes chairlift. It begins with a lovely wide mountainside section offering great views of the Lindarets valley, and ends in steep bottlenecks that lead down to the Abricotine slope.

 

LA COMBE DES MARMOTTES

Length: 2.08 km

This suspended valley running down the mountainside is a real playground of easy access to any snowboarder who can handle a blue slope. It varies both in gradient and shape, making this snowboard cross course particularly amusing. It can be reached via the Fornet chairlift.

LES CROZATS

Length: 3.122 km

Freeride fans dream of waking up to find fresh powder on Les Crozats, the « Snowboard cross » trail of Avoriaz 1800! This wide, unspoilt valley starts at Les Hauts-Forts where you get a real feeling of wide open space and virgin territory. Les Crozats then joins the black World Cup slope, then the Prodains sector where you can take the Prodains Express cable car back to Avoriaz 1800.

LES BROCHAUX

Length: 1.34 km

Beginning with a wide wall where you can trace curves through the powder, the slope then turns into a mogul trail. You can reach it via the Brochaux chairlift.

LE PSCHOTT

Length: 1.25 km

This snowboard cross descent covers very uneven terrain where a succession of natural canyons make it particularly amusing for those who enjoy inventing their own run. It is more technically challenging than its neighbouring snowboard cross slope, La Marmotte (red run). It is accessible via the Fornet chairlift.
