Founded in 2002, the GoPro brand has become the go to household name for small camera and Point of View media. Originally, the idea of the 'Hero' camera was to get close up shots of owner and founder Nick Woodman and his surfing buddies while they were trying to make it to the pro ranks of surfing (Go - Pro). Amateur photographers couldn't get close enough and the equipment to shoot underwater was too expensive or in the hands of professional photographers too busy or also too expensive.

To date there have been 14 Hero cameras produced by GoPro, including the different Session and + models. We're now up to the Hero 9 and it's an amazing piece of equipment. With 5 video modes including a 5k option and live streaming up to 1080p, touchscreen front and back, waterproof housing up to 10m and proprietary technology such as Hypersmooth 2.0 stabilization and RAW photo capture, it's the go to equipment for amateurs and pros and is indispensible for capturing those memories on your Morzine or Finale Ligure mountain bike holiday.

GoPro Hero 9 Black

We've been using the GoPro platforms since our snowboarding days at in 2009 and more recently have been using the Session series to document all the tracks and trails in our resorts for our Track Check series across all our resorts, Morzine, Finle Ligure, Aosta & Schladming.

They are user friendly, dependable and have been proven to last in tough conditions while our helmets and for all sorts of media generated by our man behind the lens Scott, who also uses the 7 & 8 in his media kit. Upgrading to the 9 series this year is going to give our guys the best possible avenues to produce media to get everyone stoked on shredding bikes across Europe.

There's a reason these things are used across the world beyond action sports, they've found a way to shoot pretty much anything from a Hollywood movie to a summer backyard BBQ on a camera that fits in the palm of your hand. The quality of the footage and still shots is awesome and with added features such as 8 x slow motion and time lapse these cameras can be used in pretty much every situation to capture high quality content.

Latest mountain biking News and Events

Amidst a 2020 we'd all rather forget the news is not all doom, gloom and lockdowns. The Morzine summer season was short, but sweet as a nut with beaming sunshine and all time trail conditions. The extra time before the season got underway was perfect preparation for the shapers in Morzine.

What is Morzine like right now?For the most part, like any other year! Just add masks, sanitiser, signage and a dash of social responsibility. Wash your hands regularly, use the sanisters provided. The trails are running prime, the extra efforts of the shapers across resorts this year is noticeable and the weather has been peachy after a rainy June, the rest of summer 2020 is looking good!

The Avoriaz MTB Team have been putting in the hard yards for over a decade, the slopes of Super Morzine have become a mecca for park rats, DH shredders and families alike with their well built and thoughtful approach to trail design that is rad where it needs to be, safe where it should be and offers features and trails to suit beginners all the way up to seasoned pro's.
