Val d’Isère MTB Videos

Val d’Isère joins forces with Tignes again this summer to bring you 150 km of first-class mountain bike trails. And the lift pass for bikers is free. What’s the catch you may ask? Well, excluding the fact that you need to endure the two and three quarter hour transfer time from Grenoble airport to get there, there isn’t one. You can just go nuts!

The Mountain Biking

The Val d’Isère bikepark offers a huge variety of terrain from high-altitude rocky trails to switchback singletrack. There’s something for everyone whether you’re looking for mellow trails or you’re a downhill junky craving fast, steep and technical black runs.

To get into the swing of things take the Bellevarde gondola up from the town and ride the fast and flowy, 6.5 km Val Bleu run back down.

Once you’re warmed up, hit the red Rhododendrons track which drops 850 m in 4.8 km. Fast and open at the top, it quickly gets steep and technical before you transition into a lovely fast, flowy section complete with jumps and berms. The bottom section is solid switchbacks through the trees. An amazing run.
