Top things to do
Aquariaz has been designed as an aquatic paradise in the mountains featuring lush vegetation and rocks: a river with a variable gentle current, a slidewinder (a kind of aquatic halfpipe), a water playhouse, a paddling pool, a large pool with climbing walls, massage benches and the must-try: an open-air spa heated to 34 degres! This type of water park is found nowhere else in the mountains and features a ‘hybrid’ concept with natural tropical vegetation in mountain surroundings.

THE FIRST GIANT ECOLOGICAL SNOW PARK IN EUROPE
Avoriaz has always succeeded in being creative when designing its slopes and snowparks. In 2008, Avoriaz has brought to Europe a new generation of 100% natural snow playgrounds : «The Stash». 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. Attracted by Avoriaz’s reputation as a snowboard centre, the professionalism of the teams here and the resort’s ability to designate an area reserved for the project, Burton chose Avoriaz as the only European resort capable of managing this ambitious project. Burton’s philosophy is 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..
