Portes du Soleil

04/06/2018 by admin

Portes du Soleil

Les Portes du Soleil is the worlds largest lift assisted mountain bike network linking both French and Swiss Alpes and connects resorts such as Morzine, Les Gets, Chatel, Avoriaz  and Morgins.  Set between the backdrop of Lac Geneva (Lac Léman) and Mont Blanc the entire area is blessed with spectacular scenery. Apart from a couple of relatively modern high altitude purpose built resorts, the others have predominately grown from traditional farming villages. This gives the area a really traditional feel with many businesses occupying beautifully renovated farm chalets.

Due to the quality and the abundance of world class mountain biking and road cycling, many of the resorts have a definite British feel with thousands making the journey each summer in search of the ultimate trail. Thus the bars, restaurants and numerous bike shops all do a raring trade.

Mountain Biking

Quite simply the largest connected bikepark in the world and the one all other resorts in Europe aspire to be like. This relatively low altitude, but sprawling area of alpine meadows and pine forests is interconnected by 20 lifts and over 650km of purpose built mountain bike trails. The area caters for all levels of mountain biker with a vast selection of downhill, enduro, freeride, cross country and family trails as well as pump tracks and 4 cross areas.
