The ski lifts here in Les Deux Alpes are not just for the winter. If you are after a French Alps mountain biking holiday with some adrenalin through the summer months (mid-June to the end of August), the lifts re-open and the Les Deux Alpes bike park and trails should provide plenty of thrills. A mecca for any Down Hill Mountain biker, the resort provides over 100km of trails. With 18 individual trails to try out ranging from beginners Green runs to enjoy or just cut your teeth on, through more challenging Blues, exhilarating Red runs up to the full on Black & Elite runs. One of these is our very own Red run down to Venosc with a 830 metre vertical drop
As well as the trails, there are not one, but two skills areas to try out as well as a pump track. If you’re inspired you can always enter the Mountain of Hell downhill Enduro held in July from the resort glacier at 3600m all the way down to Venosc which is over 2500 metres of vertical descent
Mountain Bike Hire
Mountain bikes are available for hire at many of the ski shops in Les Deux Alpes that change over to bike hire operators for the summer season. It is possible not only to hire Down Hill bikes, but full face helmets and pads to make sure you’re prepared to take on the trails and bike parks here. Camp de Base and Jacques Sport are located at the Venosc end of the resort just next to the Diable chairlift. Links to these and other shops can be found here
