The h.o.5.park has a great snowboarding legacy: owned by Boardsports Architectura S.L, a company founded by industry insiders Nicolas Watier, Aurélien Saint-Martin and Iker Aguirre. Now the park has been recognised as the “Best Snowpark in France" by the Snowboard Collectif, a French association of snowboard brands and manufacturers.

To celebrate the achievement, h.o.5 has announced the imminent arrival of another snowpark in Chamonix.

“The project has been very well received and we want to especially thank all those who have made it happen: the locals, the Club des Sports, and the Compagnie du Mont Blanc. The credit is theirs above all," says Nicolas Watier.

In 2006/07, h.o.5.park is committed to developing up to 5 freestyle parks in France and discussions are underway for developments in Spain, Andorra, China and Dubai.
