As the view from our Onyx Penthouse shows, snowboarding in the Portes Du Soleil is set to kick off this weekend in truly epic fashion.
ON THE SLOPES
Avoriaz will open it’s slopes for the season on December 15th plus the Morzine – Les Gets area will partially open the same day, a week earlier than planned! The full Portes du Soleil snowboard area is still scheduled to open from Dec 22nd 2012 – 21st April 2013 and the Onyx team cannot wait to get back on the white stuff!
Our inaugural All Mountain Performance snowboard camp kicks off on December 15th and has completely sold out! But worry not, if these pictures are setting your mind into a frenzy of snow addiction be sure to check our our range of group and private lessons available throughout the season PLUS the second instalment of our AMP camps running March 23rd – 30th 2013 which still has a couple of space for all you intermediate and advanced riders.
