The Stash goes to Avoriaz! The first giant ecological snow park to come to Europe, it's a new generation of 100% natural snow playgrounds.
A new concept in snowparks imported from the Californian resort of North Star, it was developed by Jake Burton himself, famous for his visions on the future of the snowboard.
Burton’s philosophy was to create an area in the middle of the forest that caters for a mixture of freeride and freestyle, whilst simultaneously transmitting messages about environmental protection.
This place rocks! Not that I have had the opportunity to get there yet, and I stress yet, but it is certainly on our list of must go places for 2008!
