Morzine / les get – bin there done that where now?
I've been to the Alpi bike, photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dcsolomons/collections/72157621720185821/
Mont Genevre was really good, very well thought out dh style singletracks with jumps and drops. Real eye opener to how a bike park should be built in the alps, we managed to ride pretty much everything twice in a day, wouldn't stay there more than two days.
Sestriere was freshly cut dh and could do with some bedding in. The lift is short and they only used half the lift altitude. However the tracks were great and worth a days ride.
Sauze D'Oulx was average but definitely worth a days ride. Trails were good but not maintained well and have abit too much traffic.
Bardonacchia was utter shite! We did two runs and went elsewhere. Avoid.
All in all the resorts are much better than just going to the same old Morzine. I highly recommend going by car and having a roadtrip.Posted 8 years agomybikeMember
Was great to see loads more trails built this year above Les Gets & Chatel bike park rocks but I'd still put Whistler top of the list. Its not like the alps, the bike park is one side of one hill with 2 lifts but you'd do well to hit it all in 2 weeks.
Alpi bike looks good having said that…Posted 8 years agoDelSubscriber
joyriders in spain or bike verbier. verbier has more singletrack descending than you could shake a pump at, and all of it is interesting. you'll easily do 2000m descending before lunch most days. a real test of brakes and nerve. a supremely professional and well thought out operation too, in every respect. recommended. 🙂Posted 8 years agonasherMember
Alpibike resort is typically Italian, i.e unfinished and not thorughly thought through.
It has the potential to be really good, but the lifts and trails are not interlinked so you will have to drive to each resort.
Also it is very expensive accommodation wise, lift passes you have to buy per day as you cannot buy one pas for all the resorts.
If you want ski lift alp's riding then you cannot beat the trails and guys at Trailaddiction, also Bike verbier has a good rep but i have not ridden there yet.
Alternatively check us out at rivierabike.Posted 8 years agoSugar2Member
Been there last 10 years, still love it, still finding new stuff, but then I do the All Mountain rather than the same track/run everyday all day like some of the DH boyz. Have heard that the other resorts are catching on and have some great stuff, Portes de Soleil needs to continue making runs and maintaining those they have got, which unfortunately they tend not to doPosted 8 years agoToombsyMember
I went to south Spain last October and was very disappointed.Posted 8 years ago
Went to Pyrennes which was OK – rocky singletrack and very hot.
As you say, have done Morzines / Les Gets, which are great, but I would like to do the Swiss Alps – Bike Verbier.
What about something in Italy? There are some great youtube clips of Italian riding.Burchy1Member
