The Morzine mountain bike season starts in Late May when Les Gets opens it's lift for the weekends only. This is usually every weekend from around the 20th May until they open full time on or near the 10th June along with the Pleney mountain bike trails in Morzine. The full Portes du Soleil lift area doesn't open until near the end of June, normally the 23rd / 24th when the huge Passportes du Soleil event rolls into town. Once this area is open you have access to 12 resorts, 22 chair lifts and over 55 downhill tracks and the world famous mountain bike holiday destination that is Morzine and the Portes du Soleil. 

The mountain bike season last for about 10 weeks in Morzine and generally starts to wind down around the last weekend in August so they can prepare the lift for the chaos of winter. We however simply move our operation down to Finale Ligure on the Italian coast and ride some of the best single track in the world, if the Enduro World series finale is there it's saying something.

Latest mountain biking News and Events

The mountain bike trails of Le Pleney in Morzine are world famous and for very good reason. This little hill with 600 metres of elevation holds some of the most technical, steep, rooty, flat out tracks you can find anywhere in Europe, if not in the world. 

So I guess the first question is, who is Fergus Ryan? I am 25 years old and I am the marketing manager for MTB Beds. I have been racing since I was 16, starting in Downhill before turning my focus to enduro 2 years ago. I love all things two-wheeled and pushing my limits both physically and mentally when it comes to racing.


A buzzing ski resort packed full of restaurants, bars and alpine culture, Morzine's restaurant scene was once a fairly drab affair in Summer, owners preferring to take the time off or open softly with a minimal menu and hours. Not so now with Summer offering new opportunities, new ingredients, new menus and new, sunny terraces breathing new life into the town. This is driven by the young generation of Morzinoise and British owners who are ready to move with the times.
