This weekend marked the opening of the bike trails in neighboring Chamonix-Mont Blanc, so we took the 45-minute drive over to check out the work they have been doing for the past few years. In a word, amazing. Not a ton of different trails to choose from, but the €20 lift pass gets you access at Vallorcine, Le Tour, Flegères, and Les Houches.
With bermy trails in Vallorcine and Le Tour that interconnect with a minor pedal, off-the-back runs to Trient Switzerland, and a big, long, brake-smoking descent in Flegères that has one of the best views in the Alps, Chamonix is on its way to becoming one of the premiere all-mountain riding zones in the area. A great add-on day for any of our Swiss MTB trips!
