Les Arcs, a few Q's.
Looks like I’m set to head out with a friend on the 14th August for 4 days. It’ll be our first venture into Europe and think we’ve picked the right place by the sounds of it.
Staying in Bourg and just wondering if a guide day would help and if it’s east to get one with the French vito. Also is Saturday a no ride day, or is there still plenty to do?
If anyone is out there then by all means let me know… or if you have any recommendations on places to stay etc

Can also vouch for Yvan. He guided us around Les Arcs 3 years ago and really knew his way around.
He described every trail, as “Steep, rocky, switchbacks, technical….”
We rode Les Arc, Thuile and Tignes last week. Weather was great, trails were really dry and dusty. Versoyen campsite was excellent. Good value and really convenient for the funicular.
Wish I was still there. 🙁
Thanks to all those who provided advice before we went.Posted 4 years agoBurchy1Member
Off out to Bourg late August for 5 days, cant wait as I didn’t think I’d get to go this year.
Stevomcd – If you can’t do Saturday rides does Iona fancy it? 😉
Oh and if anyone was thinking of using Yvan, i can also vouch that he is a very knowledgeable guide, with a unique but endearing way of describing trails. 😀Posted 4 years agofbkMember
Yet another vote for Yvan at Peisey-Vallandry MTB. We got his name from the owner of the Chalet we stayed at in Peisey.
Top bloke with some impressive riding skills, good sense of humour and he coped really well with our group of 10 mixed riders. He even got us off the top of the mountain safely when a huge fook off storm came in 🙂Posted 4 years agoceejaySubscriber
Cheers for the replies all, but as quickly as it comes, it then goes. There was 5 and then down to 2, but now due to situations / cash etc it may just be 1… me… dammit!
Even if I’m on my tod then I still want to experience getting out there if I can. I’m looking at trying not to spend a fortune, but think its invevitable due to transfers.
Is anyone going out similar times (14th Aug-18th Aug) – or is it easy to jump on guided groups mid week. Don’t fancy being stuck up a hill if I bin it!
Would I be better going to somewhere like Morz/Les Gets or somewhere with a bigger scene even though I’m more enduro than full on DH.
thanks in advance again.Posted 4 years agoblandMember
Just got back from another awesome trip, hi to everyone I met out there and word up to Doug for the most amazing map reading and navigation skills ever!
Oh and strava and la varda isn’t a good combination on the last day with a hangover, possibly the hardest thing I have done but got a time of 24 mins which I was happy with being only a min behind Ali from trail addiction who prob knows it off the back of his hand and wasn’t half cut when riding it!Posted 4 years ago
