Smoothie: Green/Blue. Perfect intro for beginners to downhill mountain biking in Tignes. Awash with curvy, silky smooth berms. Distance: 4.5km. Descends 460m. Start: Top of Palafour Lift. Finish: Bottom of Palafour Lift.
Kangooride: Blue. Heaps of jumps (hence the name!) and berms plus two long tables. Follows natural features, stony in places. Distance: 1.3km Descends 595m. Start: Top of Aeroski. Finish: Val Claret
Gunpowder: Blue. Singletrack for those with a bit of experience. The odd hip jump, and 12 berms. Surface can be loose. Distance: 4.5km Descends 500m. Start: Top of Aeroski. Finish: Val Claret
Funky Tufs: Blue. Lots of variety on this smooth surfaced manmade trail: whoop-de-whoops, tables, lots of berms and even a small freeride section. Run-outs available for non-jumpers! Named after the Tufs lift. Distance: 3.2km Descends 500m. Start: Top of Aeroski. Finish Val Claret
Jump Around: Blue. It may be a 'motorway' but still a bundle of fun. Tends to get hammered by the bike schools, so congestion and late season surface wear can be a problem. Distance: 3.4km Descends 460m. Start: Top of Palafour. Finish: Bottom of Palafour
Gypsy: Red (Difficult). A lot of work last year, now with added berms & hips. Some narrow steeps and tight bends. Ends on the Rosset with a dual slalom. Riders can continue onto the fiendish Black Metal if they want. Distance: 2.8km Descends 500m. Start: Aeroski. Finish: Rosset
Black Metal: Black. Very steep, very loose full-on descent - strictly for expert level riders. Distance: 1km Descends 250m. Start: Top of Aeroski. Finish: Rosset.
