This month, Avoriaz welcomes the Spring Xperience for the first time. This week-long event will take part in various areas of the resort, and includes workshops and competitions based around the snow sports that we love. The week kicks off with a Quicksilver Banked Slalom race, open to all ages. Wax your boards, straighten your fix, breathe good vibes and let your boards dance in the banks with our teams riders. Also available at this event, test boards from Nidecker, Jones and Flow. For those who follow the Freeride World Tour, this is big news – Avoriaz will be host one of the French Freeride qualifiers during the Spring Xperience week. Registration is open to a limited 100 competitors, and the categories include ski man and woman, and snowboard man and woman. This is a fantastic opportunity to watch top skiers and snowboarders ride a legendary face in our resort.
The Red Bull Schuss will be held on the Arare face, along with the Pipe Ground comp on the Arare half-pipe, which will be redesigned specifically for this event and the international riders taking part. Electronic mountain bikes will feature during the week in the Snowcross Race Matrix, which you can register for online for free until April 4th, when the event is held. This race will be held at the Chapelle Park, which from the top has a great view of the surrounding area, and is the perfect viewpoint for this occasion. As if there weren’t already enough extreme sports to take in, there will also be speed riding demonstrations from France’s number one speed-rider, Valentin Delluc. This again is a fantastic spectator’s sport, so to make sure you get a good sport, keep an eye on the event either online or via the tourist information centre upon arrival in resort. Throughout the course of this week there will also be live concerts around town, and special offers on accommodation and ski pass packages.
