Learn French and Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking in Morzine & The Portes du Soleil

Enjoy stunning alpine scenery and world class downhill and cross country trails, north shore and bike parks in Morzine, Les Gets, Chätel, Avoriaz Champéry & Morgins.  The ski-lifts re-open in the summer and people swap their skis and snowboards for mountain bikes and Morzine becomes a mountain biking mecca.

  • Over 650 km of Marked Trails
  • 12 Village resorts across France and Switzerland
  • 22 Ski Lifts adapted to carry bikes
  • 5 Bike Parks (plus 4X and Freeride Areas)
  • 7 North Shore Routes
  • 30 Purpose Built Downhill MTB Trails
  • Endless Singletrack

Downhill mountain bikers can enjoy the steep, technical descents after taking a ski-lift up; maximum enjoyment and minimum pedalling!

If you are into freeriding, there are purpose built freeride, north shore and dirt jump areas with plenty of rooty dropoffs, jumps and rock drops to be discovered off the beaten track.

Cross-country mountain bikers can explore many kilometres of trails including forest sections, tech rocky switch-backs, fast flowing singletrack, exposed high Alpine routes, through to gentle cross country journeys in stunning Alpine valleys.

There is also plenty on offer for beginners and families with marked “Green” XC routes and purpose built beginners downhill trails to hone your skills on.
