Morzine Bike Park
Morzine, standing at 900m altitude, and the Portes du Soleil region which reaches up to 2400m, is often referred to as the 'Mecca' of European mountain biking and is certainly the largest. With 12 linked resorts, 650km of marked trails and 5 bike parks, it honestly is a place to which all true mountain bikers must make a journey. During the summer months the town is full of mountain bikers and other like minded people, so there is a great atmosphere and many familiar (and some famous) faces from the mountain bike scene. Located centrally in the Portes du Soleil lift system, Morzine is ideally situated for exploring the vast network of trails that criss-cross the surrounding area and maps are, of course, always on hand within the chalet as well as knowledgeable staff to point you in the right direction.
Around the Portes du Soleil
As the largest linked mountain biking area in the world there are a number of special biking events that take place during the summer. Each year Châtel Bike Park hosts the Slopestyle Event with world famous freeriders coming to compete, as well as a round of the IXS Downhill Cup Series. Champery and its world cup track hosted the World Championships in 2011 with Great Britain's Danny Hart storming to victory. Morzine has also had the Tour de France come through our streets on numerous occasions, has an annual 4×4 contest and also hosts the Harley Davidson festival every few years.
Take full advantage of our 2014 spec demo bikes, so you can try out new equipment on some of the best trails in Europe. Free to all of our guests!
