Nendaz, Cycling & Mountai...

Nendaz has over 200 kilometers of marked mountain biking trails of varying degree of difficulty and length. They travel through some truly glorious alpine landscapes serving riders with fabulous views and lungful’s of fresh alpine air. One of the most demanding of the XC (cross country) trails is the highly recommended Tour du Mont Fort which actually has two offerings, an easy and difficult. However, neither is particularly easy with the shortest route clocking 45 kilometers while the longer trail tops 60 kilometers. The difference between the two is the use of lifts on the former which negate a large portion of the 6000 plus feet otherwise climbed.

Almost all of the riding from Nendaz is of the XC variety which does in itself provide some superb downhill sections although downhill purists that have become accustomed to well manicured trails with uplift at every end point will probably baulk at the idea that they might have to break sweat in an uphill pedalling session. However, neighbouring Verbier does offer some downhill of this description within the confines of its’ bike park.

Nendaz is also the starting line for “The Grand Raid Cristalp” a 131 kilometre race over the mountains to Grimentz. The race usually takes place in August.
