Grimentz-Zinal Freeride area

Get stuck into the powder ! Grimentz-Zinal has a freeride zone (Sorebois sector) for experienced riders. Only opened at the stage of the season when the risk of avalanches is reduced, this virgin area demands appropriate equipment and “extreme” caution.

The “Gardes de Bordon” freeride area has at least 100 hectares of non-signposted pistes. Made up of steep slopes and vertiginous walls, it is entirely dedicated to extreme skiers and snowboarders. At an altitude of between 2400 and 3000 m, it delights powder enthusiasts and aficionados of wide open virgin snow slopes. This freeride area is not safeguarded, and is therefore only opened at the stage of the season when the risk of avalanches is less than “3”.

Freeride requires experience, plenty of caution and the right equipment :

  • An avalanche transceiver (avalanche beacon)
  • A probe
  • A shovel

During the winter, a freeride ski and snowboard competitions take place in the Val d'Anniviers...
