This new facility was inaugurated September 12, 2015 and cost a total of 619,000 Swiss francs. Not only a concrete skate bowl the area also includes a street area, a play area for younger children and a pumptrack.

Construction for this exciting project took less than a year and it has already been dubbed ~the most beautiful skate park in western Switzerland". Situated beside the new gymnasium in Bagnes, just along the road from Le Chable, the outdoor facilities complement this all encompassing sports area.

The concrete skate bowl has two sections and varies in height from 1m40 to 1m90. The pumptrack was designed by the creator of the downhill mountain biking trails in Verbier so you can be sure that they know what they're doing!
