SKI / SNOWBOARD CROSS – OFFICIAL PRO/AM COMPETITION – arare area – slalom slope
Hybrid result of the mating of a snowman and a gladiator, the cross rider likes to face his congeners in an icy and radical atmosphere.

The opportunity for pros and amateur riders to test their end-of-season testosterone levels.

HIGHLINE – SHOW – center of the resort
Extreme sport in vogue, the highline is to walk on a strap stretched between two rocks several tens of meters above the ground. This dizzying practice inherited from the United States in the 90s is an exceptional attraction.
This year, Nathan Paulin, world record holder, will perform the show at the Natural Games Avoriaz and will walk on his line more than 250 m long stretched over a hypnotized crowd in the heart of the resort. A pure and vertiginous show to live with family or friends on a snowy mountain background !
