What European Lift Assisted Holiday Venue?
Thinking about where to go this year. Been to the usual, Morzine / Les Gets / Chatel, Chamonix, Deux Alps, Alpes D'Huez (Mega) etc… Our favourites of these would probably be Chatel for the 'freeride' element and Chamonix for the naturally technical trails.
Were not looking for all mountain. We're just looking for quality, technical, 'freeridey' lift assisted trails. If anyone has some quality recommendations, we would love to hear about them.

Not bad,but wouldnt recommend it for freerideyness.
However if you dont have a problem with the occasional climb and the odd bit of carrying the bike so that you can get over the back to Camporells and the lac des Bouillouses its a beautiful place.
Oh, best not forget the train jaune either: 1800m up 3000m down. 55k long, 2x15k descents, train back up the valley) it is truely epic, but its not for you either 😉Posted 8 years agoianvMember
Re Les Angles, They have some good lift accessed stuff between 5 and 7km, about 6 trails + there is all the stuff off the back of the mountain + the yellow train + its not far from La Molina or Andorra as part of a roadtrip.
I suppose it depends on the definition of freeride.Posted 8 years agostevehSubscriber
I've been out with Riviera bike and wouldn't reccomend the area without them. They are the uplift service and know/made the trails in the area. Without them I don't think you'd find that many without an awful lot of wasted time.
The les arcs area has a great selection of trails and you'll find some of the good ones on your own. In the summer the lifts run so uplift isn't a problem. But IMHO to get the best of the area you'll need a guide for at least some of the time.Posted 8 years ago
