The thing with Morzine is, you’re going to be pushing yourself. Unless you live in the Alps, it’s unlikely you come across 30 meter root sections, relentless, jagged rock gardens or trails you’d struggle to walk down that last for 10 minutes, let alone lift assisted with the opportunity to get 20 or more laps in a day for the whole holiday!

Morzine is not all about mountain biking. Nor is it all about walking trails off into the hills. The area is teeming with things to see and do with a family, or even as a down day if you are here primarily for the biking.

What's on offer?

Finale Ligure is not any normal kind of trail centre. These trails are built and maintained, but not groomed, the terrain is as diverse as passengers on the London underground, the sheer scope and crossword puzzle like nature to the way the riding areas present themselves blows your mind the first, second and third time you visit. Bike Park Wales is a lot of fun, but this ain't Kansas anymore Dorothy. Simply put, it's an adventure like no other.

We all know how good Phil Atwill is at riding mountain bikes and that means one thing, he needs a bloody good bike. Phil has been riding the Orange bikes 324 for a good few years now on the Dirt Orange bikes world cup mountain bike team. He has has some great results over the past few mountain bike world cup seasons on the Orange 324 downhill bike and this video show exactly why, the boy is fast, loose, lit and so skilled on a bike.

There has been a lot of track building going on during the Autumn out here in Morzine and the Portes du Soleil and the guys from Bike Park Champery - Les Crosets were not going to be missing out on that action. 

Packing up your bike for that mountain bike holiday in Morzine or Finale Ligure with your mate is the best feeling there is, apart from smashing the trail up when you arrive.

We all know Morzine is an absolute banger of a destination for riding Downhill bikes, drinking beers and lapping up the high Alpine air and this looks set to continue well into the future.

The Morzine and full Portes du Soleil lift pass prices for the 2017 summer season have just been released by the Morzine tourist office and they look very similar to the 2016 Morzine lift pass prices.

So here it is, the night before you head off on your trip to Finale Ligure, your brain isn't thinking straight, you are filled with excitement and probably busy watching all your favourite mountain bike films when you should be packing for the trip.

 

The 2017 season in Morzine has now come to a close and what a season it has been. With new tracks in both Chatel, Champery and Morzine, it's safe to say that bike life in the alps has never been better.

The Pleney secret trails in Morzine can be a dark and dangerous place, these root infested tracks intertwine and creep their way down through the dense woods that populate the Pleney hillside.
