- Les Deux Alpes – route advice please
you can pick one of these route guides up for free from the cable car station at venoscPosted 5 years ago
A group if us are off to Les Deux Alpes this weekend for the mountain of hell. We’ve got a few days of riding before the race so I was wondering if anyone here had ridden there and could recommend some riding in the area?
Are there plenty of decent waymarked routes or is there better stuff off the beaten track?
Any advice much appreciated.Posted 5 years agolucienMember
The red route from les deux alpes resort down to Venosc far from average – steep, loose and some biggish jumps plus a long run.
Some of the reds down from the mid-station back to the resort pretty awesome too.
Woodwork sections on the runs that are on the left as you come into the resort, can be tricky in the dusty dry or wet conditions.Posted 5 years agoextremenikMember
They have been busy this week moving snow, so you can ride from the bottom of he glacier down. Thats would allow riding from 3200m, but I don’t no how far they have got!
Even if it isn’t open for riding, the lift is open for snowsports, so if you are doing he Mountain of Hell go and have a look from Jandri lift and get your bearings.
The Red Venosc run is usually used so get some practice in as it is pretty fun when rode fast. Also practice on all runs down from Diable, as they weave down that face too!
The talas from he lake down has been made better over the last couple of years. This is the one you can see as you drive in, weaving down under the chairlift.
Most of the riding is on the map and you will find that ok for a couple of days.Posted 5 years agoCaptain PugwashMember
There is loads of stuff in Les 2 Alps most of which ends up back in the village. It’s a great resort and most of the riding is fast. The Venosc run is steep, fast and very loose. I had a big crash there a couple of years ago but away with it but I have see a few riders carted off it while doing the Freeraid. If you have got a car a visit to the Mega course is worth while.Posted 5 years ago
