What happens when you chop up the Avoriaz halfpipe?
Sking or snowboarding a halfpipe is a pretty weird experience right?
Hard packed walls of snow/ice compacted into something to ride into and hopefully survive. It gets even crazier when you chop the walls up and add features like jib and rails into the equation. Well thats just what the Avoriaz crew & PVS have been up to this April, and the edit they have just released is crackers! Check it out here:

The idea behind the shaping of the park was to create a skatebowl sensation which enables the skiers to pump through a series of creative lines and experiment in a playground which was perhaps dominated only by snowboarders only 10 years ago. It’s great to see the freestyle side of skiing exploding even further, especially when Avoriaz is becoming the epicentre of European talent.
We can’t wait to see what Avoriaz has got planned for next season, what can top The Stash, The Stash Junior, Chappelle Park & Arare Park already?? It really is becoming the mecca to learn freestyle ski and snowboard and it’s great to see the quality of riding coming from everyone visiting Morzine! Bring it on Avoriaz!
