Avoriaz is known worldwide for providing the best parks and pipes in Europe – you will not be disappointed.
The big boys park can be found underneath the TK Arare lift. The kickers in this park are big – the red jumps do not compare to most other resort reds they are a lot bigger so make sure you hit them fast enough to clear. If you are not a confident park rider only enter this park as a spectator. At the bottom of the park is a hut surrounded by deckchairs where the music is always pumping out. This is a cool spot to hang out and watch some of Europe’s best do their stuff.
