Whitelines mag rated Morzine, Avoriaz 2nd overall for top spots to ride park! Here at Doorstep Skis we couldn't agree more! Heres what they say..
Morzine-Avoriaz scores highly for freestyle. Morzine’s park is
average and bettered by the offering from neighbouring (and connected)
Les Gets. However, riders need look no further than Avoriaz for the real
freestyle deal. With two strong parks, a great halfpipe and the
wood-themed Burton Stash, Avoriaz is properly switched on for
freestyle. There’s even a small park for beginners.
The most popular spot is the Chapelle park. Serviced by a dedicated
drag, it’s designed for everyone from beginners through to strong
freestylers, with three kicker lines and plenty of jibs. It has a
vibrant scene, reflecting the work that the shapers put in: music
playing, well groomed hits, daily re-shapes, and fresh design. Avoriaz’s
trump card is perhaps The Stash – one of only two in Europe. Originally
built for advanced riders, they’ve since added some more routes,
including ‘Main Street’, so the Stash now caters for all levels of
freestyle ability. However, with ski schools going through it, and
deliberately little maintenance, things can get very rutted. There are
easily 20 hits from top to bottom: rails and boxes made from logs,
picnic benches, rainbows, wall-rides, powslashes, hips, even jumps
through trees – awesome.
For the truly bold, the connected resort of Les Crosets – just on the
Swiss side of the border – has a monster park, full of unfeasibly large
