Morzine is the ideal resort to start freeriding with its gentle slopes and rock-free terrain.
The best places for off-piste skiing in the resort, when snow conditions permit, are in the areas of Nyon and Chamossiere, at an altitude of 2000 m. The Pointe de Nyon will be reserved for the most seasoned skiers, while the Combe d'Angolon and the off-piste route of Chamossiere will be perfectly suitable for average to good skiers.
Expert freeriders can head to Avoriaz where they will find playing fields at their level, particularly in the areas of Crozats, La Frontaliere, Brochaux and Marmotte.
And if you are looking for a truly unique and mythical experience, head to Champery! You can tackle the powder on the edge of the dreaded and formidable Swiss Wall!
To be sure of discovering the most beautiful places in the Portes du Soleil area and to go off-piste in complete safety, it is strongly recommended to hire the services of a high-mountain guide. It will take you to secret places and where the snow conditions are best when you put on your skis.
