- Alps for 5″ wus and 6″ hooligan
I have a plan.. but it really would benefit from the wisdom from all you ST alpine old hands.
As a post GCSE treat and last gasp ageing father fledgling son bonding exercise I’d like to take my 16yr old to have some fun in the alps for a week. I’ve never done this before and budget is an issue!
Now my Idea of mountain biking heaven is pointing slightly down swoopy flowy singletrack off the brakes on my Pace RC405. His idea is not having to pedal at all, in the air jumps and drops, just short of world cup downhill on his beefed Spesh Enduro.
It will probably be just us two and I’m keen that we both have a good time and would prefer to get to the end of the week still talking to each other. Is there somewhere we can go that will suit us both?Posted 8 years agosootyandjimMember
Speak to the guys at Trailaddiction in Les Arcs. Although I don’t stay with them when I go out there (a friend owns a chalet in the area so I stop there) I have been with them a few times on their guided rides and if you’d be hard pushed to find better quality guides than theirs.
Les Arcs itself is fantastic for both ‘gnarly’ stuff and singletrack bashing, indeed its the reason I took beefed-up Specialized Enduro and my Giant Trance last year. Its also the reason why you find quite a few guys there the week before Mega Avalanche, getting some practice in.Posted 8 years agomtbtomoMember
+1 for Trailaddiction, there is stuff you can both enjoy, and probably on the same ride!?
They will taylor it to the groups ability and invariably can satisfy the full range of ability in the group. They mainly use the ski lifts and van uplifts – just because there’s minimal climbing doesn’t mean it has to be a crazy hard core DH fest that you won’t cope with!Posted 8 years ago
