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.

The dates for the 2017 Crankworx event in Les Gets were released a while ago on the official Crankworx Website but they have also just been released by Les Gets themselves, always hot to move with important info.

Hi Guys,

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.

Liguria is a region rich in food culture in a country obsessed with what goes on the plate. There simply is nowhere else in the world that cares so passionately about food. The dedication to eating well shouldn't be mis-understood, it's not about fine dining, table cloths and intricate presentation, it's about love.
