Chamossière Freeride AreaIn the Morzine-Les Gets ski area, you will find a specific freeride area located in Chamossière. At an altitude of 2000 meters, the Chamossière area is easily accessible by chairlift, which makes things easier, but there is a large open valley which is set free for freeride. The width of the area, its relief and its altitude ensure natural snow cover throughout the winter. Its northwest orientation means that it is only slightly affected by the Sun. Conditions are therefore good until the end of the season.
Don't neglect safety equipmentWherever you go skiing, on or off the slopes, stay safe and never neglect safety instructions. Before going skiing, remember to check the snow conditions as well as the risk of avalanches. You can also ask advice from ski patrollers to avoid making any mistake.
Freeride is a discipline which can be dangerous and it requires strong experience of the mountains. Never overestimate your abilities. It is always better to stop and head back home, rather than to take risks! Also remember to take suitable safety equipment with you (dva, shovel, etc.).
