Valais MTB Bike Park Tour

If you watched Danny Hart’s legendary Champèry World Championship winning run in 2011 with your mouth wide open, like we did, you’ll know that Switzerland is by no means a new destination for dirt lovers. Spend this week with us touring around the region’s best bike parks in our van, sampling some of the best, freshest singletrack you’ve ever ridden – no blown out corners or endless braking bumps!

We’ve often had people say to us that they can’t decide which resort to go to for their mountain bike holiday. That’s why we have come up with a week that brings you to some of the best, including Champèry & Morgins, Verbier, St. Luc, Crans Montana and Leukerbad. Avoid the long queues in France and skid across the border to Switzerland, where we can guarantee trails that are hidden and not over ridden. Fill the van, pump up the tunes, rant about bikes, suspension and rock up to a different bike park each day. Now what mountain biker doesn’t love a road trip in a van?!

Each bike park offers something different, from flat out loam to steep, gnarly technical terrain. We tailor this week entirely to suit the needs of the group making each location ideal for any level of rider. We begin the week with a play in Verbier Bike Park, where you can warm up on some mellow blues and fun reds, before – if you want – braving the blacks or the renowned IXS race track. We do recommend trail bikes though, as we use the vast amount of chairlifts to access natural singletrack off the beaten track. This is more like an uplift week without the pedal and grunt that our point-to-point Enduro week offers. With the knowledge of Valais MTB’s guides you can end day one on a high with a 2000metre ride down to the valley floor of Le Chable so it is nice to have a trail bike for this option.

This is most definitely a week of descending with a lot less of the grit and determination that’s needed on our Alpine Enduro Experience week. You will pedal a little on 1 or 2 days (if you want) but there will be no hike-a-bike challenges. These short bursts will allow us to sample some of the best singletrack in the Swiss Alps. From flowing Alpine singletrack through meadows and forests to steeper bike park runs you can descend thousands of metres of singletrack in just one day.

Each day we will enjoy our freshly prepared lunch in one of the mountain huts while taking in some breathtaking views at some pretty spectacular locations.

We have carefully picked our hotel accommodation in each resort from a mountain biker’s perspective. Each one offers quality bike storage, a bike wash, good grub and, most importantly, comfortable beds. For your rest day (Wednesday) you’ll be right by the chairlifts if you fancy a few laps, or just enjoy yourself chilling with have a soak in a nearby swimming pool or thermal bath, try out a Via Ferrata route or just chill on the terrace and soak up the sun.
