We recommend trying a full suspension bike to get the most out of the trails, which for a small upgrade cost will maximise the fun factor. 

You can upgrade any 3 days (free) hire to 6 days from only £49. Our new fleet of ‘Specialized’ bikes come with front suspension and disc brakes and come expertly maintained by our own mechanics.

New to riding the Alps?

If you’ve ever fancied the rush of riding a full suspension bike on REAL mountain terrain, then let us help you get started this summer! Our Introduction to Mountain Biking Using the Lifts lesson (€35) is ideal if you are new to the Alps but have some trail riding experience. This taster session will set you up for a week of spectacular riding.

Family and Beginner Rides

Discover beautiful scenery, alpine tracks and trails that lead through forests, alongside rivers and up at altitude…family trails that even use the lifts!

Families are in for a real treat! The local mountain biking routes offer a spectacular day out, with lake-side stop overs for lunch and paddle sports or sunbathing to break up the day. Families with off-road riding experience can also try cruising the selection of easier ’family bike routes’ using the lifts where you’ll see stunning views of Mont Blanc.

We have a selection of bikes for all ages, 4 and up. And some Specialized fat-tyre bikes which suit ages 5 or 6 and up.
