2018 just gets better and better, with a whole 10 weeks of full Portes du Soleil (PDS) opening and another 3 weeks of opening for Le Pleney and Les Gets this is hotting up to be our longest season ever.
Adding to the stoke, Morzine is playing host to the PDS opening festival on the last weekend in June and is set to be huge in honour of it's 15th anniversary.
Although this is a later opening than usual for the PDS, we are hoping for more consistent weather throughout the mountain bike holiday season as a result.

With 2018 being the 15th edition of the PDS event it is sure to be a banger. Running from the 29th June through to the 1st July, the event that started as an iconic mountain bike race has now developed into the grand opening of the PDS. With the show basing itself out of Morzine instead of its usual Chatel, the town will be booming with big names such as Enve, Scott, Ohlins and many more showcasing their products throughout the weekend. Although running later than in previous years this allows Crankworx to run further into the season with a higher chance of dry weather for its 3rd appearance in Les Gets.
The event has also kept up with trend bringing a new e-passportes event being added to the line up as well as a night ride for those who want to test the limits of riding mountain trails in the dark. This year the event brings a much needed explosion of mountain biking to Morzine for the opening weekend and we couldn't be more excited for it.
This year the bike and component test centres that have often eluded Morzine will now be available to those staying for the weekend in question. With one of the most vigorous testing grounds in the world what better place to try out a new bike or part before purchasing it.
