So what is the mountain biking like in Morzine
Super Morzine - Avoriz
Super Morzine is all about the berms and the jumps, it is usually super smooth and has a lot of flow, the blue and red trails s and the perfect warm-up for a week's holiday, but always remember to build up your confidence slowly. There are also some excellent black-grade trails on Super Morzine such as Hattok with roots, gaps and jumps. But the red and blues make sup the majority. Dont forget to check out the serroset side and lift also.
Morzine Bike Park and Le Pleney
Possibly the most famous hill on earth for steep, technical and natural mountain bike terrain, you have 10’s of steep natural trails built by the local that bring riders from all over the world back to Morzine every year. There is also the blue, red and black main line. Mainline was built by Roger Mandain about 30 years ago and has well and truly stood the test of time.
Chatel, oh Chatel
Jumps, berms and steep black trails on steroids, very very different to that of Super Morzine. Take your DH bike and full face helmet for this palace. Home to some of the biggest berm ever built on Vink line and some of the biggest gaps in the Alps on Air Voltage. Enjoy.
Les Gets Bike Park
A little bit of everything over this side of the hill, from World Cup tracks to family friendly Green trails. It has the full package, it is not famous for any particular style of riding but there are some very good natural enduro trails just out side of the bike park including Colorado!
