The skate

SLOPESTYLE & SLIDE

Slopestyle has been around in the States for many years but in Europe it has been quite small. That’s why we have a wide range of obstacles like a speedbump, a kicker and a big air.

Wearing a helmet, gloves and knee protection is always obligatory! We strongly advise wearing elbow protection as well.

 

FREESTYLE & DANCING

For all our freestylers and dancers we have a giant plateau on top of the mountain. Here you can learn new tricks while enjoying the breathtaking view! 

 

DOWNHILL & FREERIDE

ROAD 1 - We have 2 roads: Le Martinet and Le Bondet. Which of these two roads we use during the summer, depends on the preference of the municipality. Both beginning downhillers as more experienced riders will have lots of fun on these roads. In standup the road reaches up to speeds of 25km per hour. In tuck the maximum speed increases up to 50km per hour. The only condition to start here is that you can footbreak or control a slide to stop. If you’re not comfortable with this yet, we strongly suggest you to take some lessons first! The road consists of a combination of various (technical) sweepers and hairpins. Click here to see the 'Le Martinet' video.

 

ROAD 2 - Le Margériaz - 2,8 kilometer, 2 different hairpins, several sweepers, 260 meter altitude difference and an average incline of 7,60% with a maximum of 12,50%. Needless to say more, the numbers tell the whole story. Even beginning downhillers will be comfortable on this road since it is very wide, smooth and has very large turns. The road has been renewed with smooth black concrete in 2016 and 2019. The maximum speed in tuck increases up to 90km per hour! Click here to see the video.

 

Wearing a fullface helmet, back protector, gloves and either knee and elbow protection or leather is mandatory! If you don’t have a fullface helmet or other protection, you can rent this as well. Don’t forget to mention this already with your booking.

 

!! SAFETY !!

For our team nothing is more important than safety. We close down the roads completely and the roads are sufficiently secured with high-impact matrasses and safety nets of the ski resort. There will be many supervisors present (1 supervisor for 5 guests), equipped with walkie-talkies, to make sure we see everything and all participants will receive a briefing.

Anyone not respecting the safety rules, not listening to the supervisors, not wearing the mandatory safety equipment or endangering others, will be denied access to the mountain for the rest of the week!
