Mountain Biking

Dramatic downhill rides, stunning scenery, curves and berms; Chamonix offers some of the most accessible and rewarding downhill mountain biking in the Alps. Love the rush of skiing? This will leave you on the same high.

Our qualified guides cherry pick the best trails that criss-cross the mountain through meadow, forest and rock. If you're a biking beginner or less fit, choose Discovery. Those looking for an adrenaline filled day, opt for our Action trips.

Our Discovery trips opt for cross-country routes that showcase the beauty of the mountain in summer, past flower-dotted meadows and glacial streams. Action trips are all about daring downhill riding, first travelling up the mountain by chairlift before coming back down on runs that will put your technical skills to test.

Expect soaring endorphins and an experience that will leave you raring to get back in the saddle.

Our in-resort team can help you organise a range of trips, for all abilities.

Handy hints
  • Take some handy snacks to keep you fuelled on the trails
  • It’s hot, hot, hot up those mountains at this time of year. Wear a high factor SPF and take plenty of water.
  • Make sure your insurance policy covers you for downhill biking and always wear protection.
