Chamonix board riding: Snow Parks, Best Rider zones, Off Piste and more...
One of those mind-numbing choices that you have to face in Chamonix (apart from arguing where the best beer in town is or which club has the best atmosphere) - is.... where to ride?
If the snow is thin in Chamonix, Aiguille du Midi or Grands Montets have enough altitude to always get snow. This is serious board riding, unregulated free zone.
If you're into tricks, check out some of the natural kickers at Le Brevent and La Flégère.
To learn, the pistes of Le Tour and Les Houches are most accommodating. There's a human created halfpipe at the Grands Montets and a natural one at Le Tour. Check out our board riding parks & pipes page for more information.
These are just guide-lines. Each zone has the potential for serious action as well as being a useful learning environment. The Chamonix Bus will take you for free to the bas of all zones.
Chamonix rates high on the competition / freeride circuit and hosts a number of events each winter. Check out our events page to see what's on in Chamonix.
