INTERSPORT Rent tip

Our RENTertainers recommend

Budding freestyle pros can try their hand at the obstacles at Ze SeptiSnake beginner area near Samoëns. The Grand Massif Express cable car takes you up the mountain. In the middle section of the descent, you will find the action-packed fun area for youngsters.

Good to know: A drag lift was installed in this area so that little park rats won’t lose any time practising their "tricks" and jumps.
