the Tarentaise and therefore provides wonderful mountain
biking territory. Most of the walking tracks double as
mountain bike tracks during the summer months. There are
some exhilarating freeride descents where routes of more
than 1000 vertical metres take in everything from goat
tracks to shady forest paths.
Mountain bikes can be hired in the resort and local guides
are available if required.

competition descents, there is something to suit all levels
