Pass'Portes du Soleil
From Friday 23 to Sunday 25 June 2023.
The Pass'Portes du Soleil MTB is a mountain bike ride between 1000 and 2450 m altitude, in France and Switzerland, to discover the fabulous Moutain Bike area of the Portes du Soleil and its magnificent landscapes.
The route takes in between 13 and 15 lifts in the area, depending on the year (of the 24 open all summer). There are a few variants to go up on a mountain bike for the strongest and to go down on more technical slopes for the most experienced. The tour takes place on a single day, with participants choosing to ride on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
The loop is about 80km long with a downhill profile, about 6000m of D- and 1000m of D+.
