- Pass'Portes du Soleil 2013
Last year Les Gets was sold out within about 30 mins. I was in at 15 mins and got in – mate at 0930 didn’t. Further off piste starts like Torgon and Chatel had places available for a few hours. Mind you this was for a Sunday start. I expect Friday to be quieter and Saturday busier but have no evidence to back that up. We’re going for Friday this year hoping for the lifts to be a bit quieter.Posted 5 years agoTreksterSubscriber
This is part of the trail leading to Morgins just after the Super Chatel lift.
Not visible in the photo but those ruts were just constant stutter bumps and really hard going, not any smoother in the grass!!

Avoriaz? Ski village at the top of a mountain….Posted 5 years ago
I wouldn’t want to stay in avoriaz. As said, stay in morzine, get up early and drive up to avoriaz to get everyone from your groups rider packs, then back to chalet to drop off all the stuff they give you so your not having to carry it round all day. Then just start on the super morzine liftPosted 5 years agoandyrmMember
Been 3 years in a row and it’s always a great laugh – Riders Retreat in Morzine is a great bet, has huge underground storage and a fully equipped bike workshop you can use for free.
Plus, because there are 8 apartments (each sleeps up to 6) in the complex, the social aspect is good too..

I have registered today, taking across a group…unfortunatley it was quite a complicated process (when registering a lot!!) I have accidentally registered 1 place for starting in Morzine on Fri (We ride the Sun) and also 1 place Avoriaz on Sun!!!..I know!!! So I have 2 tickets (Registration numbers) that are up for grabs…genuine mistake on my part but happy to discuss with anyone who wants to buy them..have all reciepts etc…You only need a registration number to register according to the web site…let me know if it is of any interest.Posted 5 years ago
Carlos 45, might be helpful for you to know we have accommodation for the Passportes du Soleil in Morzine and handy for the Avoriaz lift. Many of our guests do as you plan – stay Morzine, start the PPDS in Avoriaz – gets you off to a good start on quieter trails. Take a look at http://www.wildbike.co.uk for details.Posted 5 years agooliverd1981Member
Is it possible to stay in Morzine and take a lift or a shuttle to Les Croset or Champery on the morning of the event?
Not Really – if you were staying in Chatel or Morgins you can get to Champery on the road without too much fuss. I’m guessing Croset is a bit of a ghost town accomodation wise in the summer – shame as it’s a central for all of the trails. Maybe you could ride there the day before and bivvy?Posted 5 years agocogwilderMember
If you have to register somewhere remote then you can ride round the route on a standard lift pass and then pick your pack up when you get there.
yea that looks like a good option, and looking at last year’s course it looks like it’ll only be an extra 30 -45 minutes commute. 🙂Posted 5 years agodeadkennySubscriber
Okay, late to the party here (usual for me 😀 ). Got an option of accommodation and people to ride with but where they’re starting is long since sold out of course. There are still entries available on the Swiss side for the Friday though.
I could get a start point that’s miles away and try and work something out, or just get a lift pass and do the stuff without an entry which apparently may be possible (and miss out on the benefits you get with the entry).
Given people cancel, what are the chances they’ll have some free up and I could exchange an entry for say Les Crosets for the above?
Or, has anyone got a spare entry for Montriond-Les Lindarets by any chance? 😉Posted 4 years agoantonyjamesMember
