Bellwald is a picture perfect Swiss village sat on a stunning alpine hillside, right on top of the Aletsch Glacier UNESCO World Heritage site. Bellwald Bike Park is a small park in the early days of development but still has some amazing biking on offer. There are 2 DH tracks here that criss-cross each other under the chairlift, with great features, jumps and drops throughout.
A round of the iXS Swiss DH Cup has been held here 5 years in a row so the course must be quality to keep justifying return visits. Keep an eye out for some cool features just off the main trails, presumably part of old course routes. You would miss them if you weren’t paying attention but they are all still accessible and worth a look. There is just the one chairlift and don't forget that it closes for lunch between 12:00 and 13:15.
Outside of the bike park itself there are hundreds of miles of epic alpine trails to explore so plenty of options for those not keen on the dedicated DH trails. There is planned expansion of the trails utilising the bigger chairlift higher up the mountain. Bellwald is definitely on the up and you will be hard-pushed to find a more stunning setting - make sure you go there once in your life!
