Ski and summer morzine logo 2013Morzine 2012 pt2 062

The 2013 alps trip is in two parts:

  • Week 1: Sat 3rd – Sat 10th Aug – catered chalet in Venosc (Les Deux Alpes, Alpe D’Huez 25 minutes away)
  • Week 2: Sat 10th- Sat 17th Aug – catered chalet in Morzine (Portes Du Soleil region

You can opt to come for either week or both. Both sets of accommodation have flexibility so you could do a bridging week with some time at both if you wanted to.

Last year we had 22 riders who spent a week in Morzine. Photos here.

Week 1:  Les Deux Alpes

Les Deux Alpes is located in the southern French alpes near Grenoble. It offers 24 dedicated MTB trails linked with lifts. . Les Deux Alpes MTB info including trail map, also on Bike.Oisans.

Half an hour away, on the other side of the valley, Alpe D’Huez offers more trails and a chance to ride the famous Mega Avalanche. More info on Bike.Oisans

Ride report on an earlier trip to les Deux Alpes.

We’ve sourced a really good chalet in Venosc. This is a proper alpine village on the side of a steep hill a few minutes away from the Venosc lift, giving access to the complete Deux Alpes MTB trails. It means that every day can finish the with the 830m of descent down the Vensoc trail.
