Les Deux Alpes – Venosc Downhill mountain bike track set to open 12th – 26th April 2014

The downhill track from Les Deux Alpes to the valley in Venosc is due to open this Saturday the 12th April until the 26th. The track always rides well at the start of the season after a winter under the snow, although the full pre-season preparation will not take place until May and June, ready for the official summer opening on the 21st June. 

A MTB pass for the Venosc gondola and the DH track will cost €10, but those with a valid ski pass wImageill also be able to use the lift. 

Some locals who couldn’t wait for this opening have been spotted on the trail, relying on an uplift back to the resort.

The Venosc bike trail has been around for over 10 years now and over the years have evolved into a very well respected down hill track. It’s now wider, faster and after a huge redevelopment in 2013 now has loads more features such as table tops, gap jumps, redesigned berms and north shore. 

Venosc provides the perfect location for groups of mountain bikers looking for somewhere to stay out of the busy resort. It is a picturesque medieval village with cobbled streets, great bars and restaurants and a lovely open air swimming pool to relax in after a hard day on the bike.
