We'll start this summer wih the Season Kick off Enduro weekend; a 3 days guided singletrack hunt around Samoëns and les Gets. Where lifts are open (les Gets) we will use them, otherwise there will be some uplifts and the use of legpower. We make it very simple; show up with a bike and a bagpack and we will take care of the rest. Would you like to come over a day earlier or staying a day longer? Than you can easily book an extra night on (for example) booking.com. During the 3 days of riding we will stay in 2 adventurous locations right in the mountains!
NB: as an experiment, this is our only trip translated in english so far ...
During the 3 days of riding we will spent 2 night in adventurous mountain shelters; basic, but right on the trails and on stunning locations!
In your bagpack you'll have to bring a (sleepingbag)liner, a fastdrying towel a toothbrush and some spare socks (please!). Further details about your picklist you will receive some days in advance.
The rooms will be dormitory style and if you are lucky you'll find a shower in the hut. We will stay here on a halfboard base, which means that diner and (french) breakfast is included.
The programm for this Season Kick off Enduro weekend:
Saturday May 19th:
Gathering in front of Xtreme Glisse skishop in Samoëns at 9:15. Starting with a day lift assisted riding in les Gets, the perfect location to warm up and get the skills back before riding some more technical terrain.
Sunday May 20th:
Leaving from our mountain accommodation, searching for some nice, long and technical singletracks in the forests of les Gets and Samoëns. Forget the manmade stuff; nature is calling! Roots, rocks and challenging sections are waiting for us...
Monday May 21st:
Today we'll ride le Grand Massif in enduro style; starting with some climbing and finishing with a long descente all the way back to Samoëns, where some cold beers are waiting fo us. Eventually finishing with a sauna/massage/shower before heading home (or your next shelter).
During 3 days we will search for some awesome singletracks. But it's not only about gravity; we need to climb (yes climb!) to get somewhere and we'll take time to enjoy the amazing mountain scenery, so please leave your blinders at home.
On day 1 we'll be using skilifts to ride some manmade downhill tracks. On the 2nd and especially the 3rd day we will use legpower, allthough a few uplifts by minivan are included also...
During the 3 days you can expect: Manmade downhills tracks to warm up, technical and natural (walking)trails with rocks and roots and some sweet flowy sections. Climing up by roads and 4x4 tracks, sometimes to steep to cycle.
For this trip you need some experience on mountainous singletracks and a good condition. An allmountain/enduro bike will be ideal, with 130-160mm of travel in the back and in the front. Starting from € 130,- for 3days we can book you a rentalbike for the weekend.
To kick off the season we propose you this trip for the special price of:
€ 369,- per person
This price includes:
Liftpasses, drinks and lunches are not included
