Châtel MTB area
From 26/06 to 30/08/2020. Dates to be confirmed.
From mountain biking excursion, accompanied or not by a monitor, on the 90km of marked paths of the resort, to the 4x or the Pré-la-Joux bike park, in Châtel you'll be satisfied, whatever your level is.
And every year, new services come to be added to those already existing in order to widen the VTT offer.
Châtel is also a part of the Portes du Soleil area, which means that you'll be able to ride from one resort to the other using lifts and marked tracks, just as skier do in winter time.
The Mountain Bike park is a special area dedicated to mountain biking fanatics, located at Pré-la-Joux/ Plaine Dranse.
Reached via Pierre-Longue and/or Rochassons chairlifts, it has around twenty downhill trails at all difficulty levels and a number of fun zones. These include North Shore zones, a Kids’ Shore and a slopestyle with a Live Park where you can video yourself and share your videos with your friends.
Please note: a suitable mountain bike, helmet and protective gear are compulsory.
All the jumps of the Mountain Bike Park have some signs on their kicks and landings:
- A green sign means the jump is filled ( like « tables »).
- A red sign means there is a howl between the kick and the landing( like « doubles or « gap »).
Black slopes also have different stages of difficulties
- « Nomal » black
- « Double » black : a bit harder with bigger jumps
- « Triple » black : the hardest
Be careful not to overestimate your level. Take your marks before sending any jumps.
Bikers have a washing point at Pré-la-Joux.
The 20 tracks are maintained and secured by a team of 9 "Bike Patrol" (opening and closing tracks, securing the domain, first aid and advice of all kinds!).
