DC created the epic DC Area 43 in Meribel-Mottaret France five years ago, and it’s evolved each year to become arguably one of the finest terrain parks in France, if not Europe.
Located in the heart of the Three Valleys mega-zone of interlinked resorts, you can be sure that if it dumps or you fancy some speed runs, side hits or any other non-park related shenanigans you’ll have more than you could ever possibly explore accessible from virtually your doorstep. But we’re specifically spotlighting the park facilities in DC’s Area 43 here, because you’d be hard pressed to find a better offering in the land of la baguette.
DC AREA 43
Five years on and the park has gone from strength to strength, attested to by the fact that last season more than a million people with freestyle on their mind made their pilgrimage to this hit-laden Mecca.
To begin to try to detail all the features that the shaping crew have created for you would take way more space than even the internet can handle – there are over 90,000 square metres of features (including over 250m of rails and boxes alone) littered over four regular areas that have been designed to cater for every rider’s needs.
