Pleney Singles with Greg Minnaar

Le Pleney - Le Roots - Red

Although Le Pleney is known better for its steep secret tracks its relatively new red track is certainly up there with the best tracks in Morzine. Speed is your friend on this track, with long straights and big banked corners the track allows for speed to be carried throughout the track. Unfortunately due to maintenance the very bottom section of this track wasn't recorded but this gives a great idea as to what you can expect.

Chatel - People - Blue

A great track for beginners with berms as big as walls this track meanders down the side of the hill allowing you to practice key cornering skills and get high on the entrance to the berms. Situated just to the left of the mid station in Chatel and numbered blue 10 this trail will get you pumped for a big day sending jumps.

Chatel - People - Blue

People can be found just off the mid station in Chatel. It is a great track for beginners to practice their cornering with long and high berms the whole way down it is quite confidence inspiring. The track does suffer from braking bumps due to the amount of traffic it gets so best to ride this earlier in your holiday when your arms are fresh.

Chatel - Vink Line - Blue

The latest creation from the madman that is Nico Vink. Having spent many years competing at the Chatel mountain style Nico got invited to let his imagination go wild on the main hillside of Chatel. Its safe to say he didn't hang around building one of the most iconic tracks in the resort and some of the biggest jumps in Le Portes du Soleil, its hard to comprehend how this monster is a blue.

Les Lindarets - Chesery - Blue

Often missed out as a main track but a good one for beginners who want to work on their cornering and jumps. Although finishing high on the mountain there is plenty of potential for development in the future. This trails links Chatel back to Morzine via the Les Lindarets valley. A fun trail with a savage black called Toboggan at the end of it if the fire road is to tame, it is good fun but serious so be careful. 

Les Crosets - Le Grand Coche - Black

Otherwise known as Swiss national this track is not one for the faint-hearted and is Black rated for a reason. With stunning views and shear drops on the side of the track you must negotiate tight turns and rocks to get past the top section. Although there are few jumps in the track the ones that are there are high speed and require good bike control to complete.

Champery - World Cup Track - Black

No introduction needed. Host to Danny Harts jaw dropping run in the 2011 World Champs this track demands respect from the off. Not to be ridden in the wet without the surname Hart, this track is Ultra steep with tight technical turns and awkward drops this track is not for beginners. Dare you test your skills against this beast?

Les Gets World Cup Track 2019

With the Portes Du Soleil (PDS) being the largest bike park in Europe it's been a surprise to many that world cups haven't been hosted there since 2002. This, however, Is soon to change, making a historic comeback is the Mt. Chery race track in Les Gets. Famous for Steve Peat's iconic slide out and a truly old school style this race is sure to be a crowd and rider favourite for the 2019 World Cup series.

Les Gets - Mouille Rond - Green

Take a run down one of Les Gets Green trails with our MTB Beds team. This is a great run for beginners with a mellow gradient and great turns to practice on. It is however also great fun for more experienced riders with plenty of inside lines and hops to keep a smile on your face from top to bottom.

Avoriaz - Brochaux - Blue

Searching for a fun way to access Champery without a long pedal cross country? Brochaux runs from the top of Avoriaz and is a fun flowy trail leading down to the Mossettes lift. With switchbacks and awesome natural rock segments, this trail is sure to put a smile on your face, beware however as this track is lethal when wet.

Returning from Les Gets to Morzine - NO MORE ROAD!

No more will visitors to the Portes du Soleil have to run the gauntlet on the road from Les Gets to Morzine. A newly constructed piste, marked as a blue, provides a fun way to get back to the hustle and bustle of Morzine from the top of The Chavannes lift. It's still a reasonably long way to go so we've sped the process up a little....The new section has berms, tables, A-Line's and B-Lines for the jumps, fun for all the family. With some fast fire road sections in between.

Latest mountain biking News and Events

Summer is here. The lifts in and around Morzine are turning and the trails are open. We would normally be welcoming our first clients for the summer season this Saturday, unfortunately things did not work out. We’re here, but you guys aren’t and to be honest it sucks as much for us as it does for you.

If you're a mountain biker itching to get to the alps, 2021 is turning out to be about as much fun as a bath of hamsters (depends what you're into maybe), but the pandemic hasn't stopped the track builders of the Portes du Soleil cracking on with the continual levelling up of our amazing network of trails.

The mountain bike community is itching to get away to the Alps, to the mountains, beaches and bike parks across Europe. The media bounces from sensationalism to realism and it feels at least to us that it’s hard to know who is leading who, the Governments of the world, opinion polls or those that write the headlines...
