There are well marked and signposted routes for everyone from first-time riders to serious competitive downhill riders. The trails are marked similarly to the ski pistes in order of difficulty from green to black. Exploring cross-country routes is a fun family day out with mountain restaurants along the route, or ask the chef at Chalet Bluebell to pack you a picnic.
There are local bike shops who offer bike hire and fitting and all the protective equipment needed we can organise this for you in advance of your stay. We can pre-arrange for a mountain bike guide or instructor to take you around the tracks.
