About the Biking

Biking and The Portes du Soleil

Picture

Click to view the Les Gets and Morzine mountain biking map

The Portes du Soleil is recognised as one of the best mountain biking areas in Europe. With 25 lifts operating throughout the summer and over 850km of marked trails, 10 permanent downhill tracks and 4 bikeparks you will always find something new to ride.

The trails vary from short and easy family-orientated loops to technically and physically demanding cross country and downhill trails: you are guaranteed to find the perfect trail for you.

The season began this year as it always does, in style, with the Pass Portes Du Soleil: a weekend event at the end of June. A signposted 80km route that uses many lifts and covers the whole Portes Du Soleil area was on offer, with events at all the towns along the route. Don’t despair that you have missed this though: throughout the biking season there is a similar signposted route, the Tour Des Portes du Soleil, an all-day ride with 8000m of descent and only 500m of ascent thanks to all the lifts.

The Portes du Soleil is also host to both the French and the Swiss national competitions as well as the Champery world cup downhill tracks which are sure to test even the most accomplished of riders.

 

Downhill / XC / Freeride

If you want Downhill - then this area is steeped in DH history! Morzine and Les Gets have countless permanent man-made and natural courses with padded trees, berms, banked corners - jumps, drops and tunnels that put most other downhill courses to shame!

If you want X-Country or Freeride - the area has 100's of kms of single track and fire road trails that wind through stunning alpine scenery, and are supported by a lift system that will enable you to cover many miles of diverse bike terrain over France and into Switzerland. Much of the terrain and our guiding programme will focus on single track Freeriding interspersed with shorter Downhill sections to keep the adrenaline pumping. All Levels of competency are very well provided for.

The vast amount of trails which make up the Portes du Soleil naturally mean that there is something for everyone. The beginners even have learner downhill courses and the mass of downhill tracks on offer grade upwards in terms of difficulty to the Avalanche Cup courses, so the experts are well entertained.

The XC trails are also particularly beginner friendly and of course we know a lot of technical trails for the advanced. The abundance of well linked trails ensure that the beginners can adventure far from home for a long day ride into Switzerland.



Cross Country riding

The Portes du Soleil has a vast area open for bikers to get their teeth into and a great many ski lifts which allow bikers the opportunity for long day trips over into Switzerland. There is a massive amount on offer for all levels of rider, from stunning XC trails featuring hundreds of kilometres of Single Track and Fire roads through to the short but gnarly downhill sections that will push the progressive riders and keep their adrenaline pumping!



Downhill riding

Morzine and Les Gets have hosted the final round of the World Cup circuit - and this is for a reason: it is unquestionably one of the best facilitated resorts in the world for Downhill biking!

You can ride the many Downhill courses that make up the local area with purpose built banks, berms, drops and jumps which even have "easy routes" down for the beginners to experience the thrill of a real DH course. At the base of the DH runs, there is a free jet wash before you jump onto the gondola lifts again.
Biking and The Portes du Soleil

The Portes du Soleil is recognised as one of the best mountain biking areas in Europe. With 24 lifts operating throughout the summer and over 650km of marked trails, 10 permanent downhill tracks and 4 bikeparks you will always find something new to ride.

The trails vary from short and easy family-orientated loops to technically and physically demanding cross country and downhill trails: you are guaranteed to find the perfect trail for you.
