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 2: Morzine

Mountain biking in the Portes Du Soleil on the Swiss side.

Morzine is in the centre of the Portes Du Soleil region close to Geneva and Lac Leman (aka Lake Geneva). It was one of the first ski areas to promote mountain biking and has an extensive network of lifts, trails, dh runs, xc tours and a whole load of off-piste trails. Our photos from 2012 and 2011 should give you an idea of what to expect. It’s not all super gnarly dh trails!

Portes Du Soliel trail info including map.

We’ve also got some videos.

We will be staying at Chalet Flo with Ski and Summer Morzine. They are sponsoring our gravity team in 2013. They can also help if you are interested in winter holidays at special rates for club members.
