Chamonix to Arêches

Leaving the hustle and bustle of the Chamonix Valley behind we work our way into the high mountains by using a combination of lifts and pedal power... there is plenty of descending along the way - but the real highlight is the final huge rocky (and rooty) descent into Arêches.

Arêches to Courchevel

Fast and flowing trails through the woods today with plenty of natural berms that take us into the world famous ski resort of Courchevel for the evening...

Courchevel to Maurienne

We catch a ski lift from our accomodation and work our way over to a high watershed overlooking the Maurienne Valley. One of the best descents of the week now follows... starting with fast high alpine singletrack and finishing weaving along a river-bed, we eventually finish in the Maurienne Valley for a well deserved beer.

Maurienne to Briançon

Wild scenery and even wilder riding today. This is a major watershed crossing and requires some effort to get too - but the descent is well worth it. One of the most scenic days of the trip finishing in the pretty town of Briançon...

Briançon to La Grave

We leave the town of Briançon on flowy balcony trails and work our way on lovely varied singletrack, with the glaciers of La Grave towering above us, to finish in this picturesque little village...

La Grave - Alpe d'Huez

Our last day - we finish traversing high above the valley with the glaciers all around us, picking up rocky and technical singletrack that eventually takes us into Alpe d'Huez. We have high speed alpine meadows followed by warp speed trails through the trees to finish the trip...

"The trails are simply out of this world good – coming back to the UK post trip made all UK mountains seem like small hills!" Ed Russel
