We spent a few days in Portes du Soleil - cycling out from Morzine. Never been before and hoping for great things. I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed with the established sign-posted routes, but we did find some really superb off-piste stuff.
So my questions are:
1). Was I expecting too much from the trail system?
2). Did we not spend enough time there to really appreciate what was there?
3). Is the better stuff elsewhere? I was also in Annecy and that looked really like it may offer some great things.
4). Or is the approach we settled on to find the find off-piste stuff really the way to find the best of the region?
Also, riding a Specialized Enduro and Lapierre Spicy we were considerably less 'biked' than nearly everyone else we saw, would we have had more fun with bigger bikes...? I am not sure we would but am open to the collective wisdom.
