Chatel, Cycling & Mountai...

From Chatel mountain bikers gain access to more than 650 kilometers of marked trails. Many of the ski lifts remain open for use by bikers in summer enabling great distances to be covered on any one day. Of course those who prefer to reach the heights under their own steam are free to do so. Those less keen can cheat and catch a lift. The cruise down is likely to prove satisfying regardless of how you got to the start point.

As well as the extensive XC (cross-country) the area offers a number of downhill courses too. There are ten permanent downhill courses not to mention the numerous downhill sections on the XC trails. Chatel offers one downhill bike trail in particular that boasts a vertical descent of 450 metres and covers a distance of 2.7 kilometers. Speed freaks can thrash their way from top to bottom and then ride sedately back to the start in the gondola. No sweat!

Situated at Pré-la-Joux on the banks of the river Dranse, there is a skills area sporting a good variety of obstacles suitable for riders of all levels. This is a great place to come and work on those techniques that often prove very useful when negotiating the trickier sections on the high mountain trails. Instructors are on hand for those looking to improve more quickly.
