It Finished! Le Plenty has a new lift and it looks rad. Having run a full winter the lift is fast and specious unlike the hamster balls of old. The lift will be able to take two bikes and people per lift but with the lift speed, queues will not be a problem. Smashing out Plenty Bangers has never been easier!

 

3 Mountain bikers standing on top of Le Pleney in Morzine

So last year the Pleney lift in Morzine was closed for the 2013 summer MTB season due to it being replaced by a new high speed bubble lift which was finally completed in December only a month ago. Here is a quick update on the new lift and some pictures to go with it.

The only lift was taken down at the end of the 2013 Winter ski season here in Morzine and over the whole Summer MTB season here in Morzine it was closed. They did however open the La Clusaz chair lift but this was a very slow and painful way to travel to the top of the Pleney to ride some of the best trails in the whole Portes Du Soleil. 

We are still currently awaiting the new opening dates for the 2014 Summer MTB season here in Morzine and the local tourism office have been email with these requests.

So what do we know at current, here are the current hard facts about the new lift. 

  • The new lift cost €12,000,000 
  • There are 52 bubbles on the wire
  • Each bubble carries 10 people
  • Ground level ride in ability
  • No steps at the top to push up

So that about as much as we know at current and here are some very recent pictures, We will keep you up to date on any new info for the summer 2014 MTB season here in Morzine, Let's hope they open is early this year...

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.
