The definition of an epic ridgeline descent!
We start off with a long uplift from Bourg St. Maurice to a height of 2000m in the 3 Valleys. This takes around 90 minutes. From here we take a 5km traverse on fireroad, followed by a short climb, fireroad descent and then a tough short fireroad climb to the start of the main trail at 2500m. It is a bit of an effort to get there but definitely worth it for what follows!
From here it is a 3 hour+ descent along a ridgeline (with a few very short climbs) on 99% singletrack. The views are spectacular and the trail defies belief. We reckon this is the best single descent in the area and it just goes on and on!
Mile after mile of flowing singletrack. There are a few technical sections thrown in but mostly it is just a blast! The relatively small amount of vertical drop does not do this justice as the trail is less steep and totals 40km in length! We finish up back in Moutiers for a quick beer before a quick 20 minute drive back up to Bourg St. Maurice.
