Despite a somewhat bumpy start to Summer 2020, with the whole world coming to a stop due to COVID-19. Life is starting to get back to normal in Morzine, the lifts are spinning and the mountains are once again full with mountain bikers, excitement and the smell of knee pads.
One thing has been clear this summer is the huge push for development of new trails and the massive improvements of existing trails, in both Morzine bike park and the rest of the Portes du Soleil area. I think its fair to say we've seen more trail developments this year than the past 5 combined. Check out some of the developments below.
BIKE PARK LES GETS
Les Gets has seen a huge influx of investment over the past few years after securing the World Cup Contract for 19, 20 and the Les Gets World Cup Finals 2021 & 2022. Alongside these huge events, they have been investing serious amount in new & existing trails, plus the new Les Gets trail crew seems to be killing it!
Some of the most noteworthy work is the brand new Jump Park line in Les Gets, this trail is a double black graded expert Jump track, boasting over 26 mostly gap jumps and features. All based under the Nauchets lift, check out the official video below.
The Les Gets Chavennes mainline has also seen a serious revamp with new tabletops, berms and features added the whole way down. Gone are the days of Les Gets being the braking bump capital of the World and we are couldn't be more stoked.
As for Morzine trail updates, the Avoriaz MTB crew that run Super Morzine trails have spent most of the summer maintaining the existing awesome tracks and built a new super booster hip at the top of Super Morzine.
Morzine Bikepark / Ski pass Morzine who manage Le Pleney trails in central Morzine, have been busy also, building a new pumptrack/ skills area at the top of Le Pleney. Plus, a new bottom half to the existing red trail on Le Pleney, this new trail is less steep and technical than the original bottom half, meaning the old trail exit is now classed as a black trail.
This has allowed for Pleney Black /mainline to see some fast, rooty & natural new sections added to the official trail, continuing its legacy of one of the most rough, fast paced downhill tracks in the area. There is no wonder the queue for Pleney lift has looked like a Downhill World Cup starting list all summer, it makes for the perfect World Cup training ground.
BIKEPARK CHAMPERY MORGINS & BIKEPARK CHATEL
Pl If you want to rip your tyres off your rims or your arms from your shoulders then look no further than the vertical berms of Morgins Bike Park. Morgins has been renowned for some of the best berms in the world for sometime now, but after this years developments on all 4 trails in Morgins, there really is no doubt that is not the berms limiting your speed, only your ability to withstand G-force.
The Champery Downhill track remains famous from Danny Harts World 2011 champs run, but after seeing significant improvements over the past few years it has become more and more accessible to riders without "balls as big" as Danny's, whilst still keeping its challenging technical features. Not an easy trail to work with, so bravo to the trail builders.
Bikepark Chalet is rapidly becoming the free-ride hotspot of the whole Portes du Soleil and this years trail developments were no different. Nico Vink's Vink line, saw a huge amount of maintenance and improvements, making the large jumps, drops & tables flow effortlessly with perfectly sculpted berms linked between. Plus the reworking and adding some jumps to the existing Chanada trails, makes for some epic riding.
With the 2020 winding to a close and all of these Morzine trail developments + more ready and waiting for next season, now could be the perfect time to book your Morzine 2021 MTB Holiday. Due to the impacts of Corona Virus and an uncertain Winter season, prices are set to rise up to 15% across the resort.
We are offering our loyal customers the chance to book your 2021 Holiday at 2020 prices, saving over 15%, plus we are offering risk free bookings/free cancellations to all our early bird customers.
Offer ends 1st January, so get in touch today.
The Corona Virus pandemic has affected the way we all live, socialise and work. And although the virus is on the decline in a lot of European countries and many businesses are back open (including our Morzine Mountain Bike Holidays). A lot of the population is still feeling the uncertainty about their future job security, none more so than professional mountain bikers.
The effects of Covid - 19 saw over half of the UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup season cancelled or postponed, including our home race of Les Gets World Cup Finals which were due to take place on the 18th - 20th September. The Enduro World Series also saw a significant number of race cancellations/postponements, with hope of a second half of the season.
We were beyond gutted to see the Les Gets Mountain Bike World Cup Finals cancelled. In 2019 the Les Gets Downhill MTB Race was quickly becoming iconic and hosting some of the largest crowds in mountain bike history (see above).
However all is not lost as we are still, scheduled to host the Les Gets World Cup Finals 2021, plus the Les Gets World Championships 2022. After such a shitshow of a year, it is bound to be an incredible couple of races.
A long winter of training, followed by Corona Virus cancelling races, a lot of pro mountain bikers are all dressed up and with nowhere to go, until the MTB World Cup's start up once again. Morzine bike park tentatively opened at the end of June, primarily to the French market, but with increasingly open borders, professional mountain bikers from all over the World have been flocking to Bike Morzine to ride, train and keep themselves sharp for the remainder of the season.
(Check out Loris Vergier and the Santa Cruz Syndicate on Morzine's famous Le Pleney above and Danny Hart in Morzine below)
Loris Vergier, Steve Peat, Greg Minaar, Danny Hart, Amaury Perrion, Laurie Greenland, Tahnee Seagrave, Millie Johnset... the list could go on. Right now the queue for Super Morzine looks more like a results sheet from the last World cup.
So why have the Worlds best chosen to come to ride Morzine Bike Park?
LIFTS - Morzine & the Portes du Soleil offer the largest MTB lift network in the World, with nearly 30 connected Gondolas & Chairlifts running roughly 8 hours a day. The amount of downhill mountain biking you can do as a result of this is insane! We've seen riders clock over 125km+ of downhill in just one day! A week of riding in Morzine often equates to 6-12 months of riding back home.
TRAILS - Due to its vast lift network Morzine offers access to a huge amount of varying terrain. Each lift provides access to a totally unique trail network below, varying from flowing green single track to World Cup level downhill courses. Even in Morzine itself, you have the steep, gnarly & rooted trails of Le Pleney on one side of the valley and the groomed, smooth berms and jumps of Super Morzine bike park on the next. This provides the perfect training ground to hone in your skills and work on your weaknesses.
TRAVEL - Despite feeling like a far away town that sits behind pearly white gates, up in the fluffy white clouds, Morzine is actually very easy to access. Geneva Airport is just 1.5 hours from Morzine and receives flights from most major international airports. Morzine is also just 8 hours drive from France's main port with the UK, Calais.
SAFETY - Despite the whole World seemingly turning to shit. Morzine has come out relatively safe and unscathed. So far there have been zero confirmed cases of Corona Virus in the Morzine area. Face masks are still mandatory and social distancing encouraged, but life feels very much back to normal in our little slice of heaven.
If its good enough for them, its good enough for you!
With just 4 weeks left of the main Morzine summer season, now is time to book that Holiday, check out our wide range of Morzine MTB Holidays:
With facemarks now mandatory in all Morzine lifts, order your Eco Friendly facemark today and avoid putting more disposable masks into landfill.
Despite a somewhat bumpy start to Summer 2020, with the whole world coming to a stop due to Corona Virus. Things are starting to get back to normal for this Morzine summer season, our Morzine MTB Accommodation is back open and operating, the Morzine Summer Lifts are spinning and the MTB trails are calling your name. Mountain bikers are once again filling the streets with a sense of excitement, a lust for beer and the smell of sweaty kneepads.
One thing has been clear this summer is the development of new trails and the massive improvements of existing trails, in both Morzine bike park and the rest of the Portes du Soleil area.
Its impossible to ignore all the hard work that the team at Bike Park Les Gets have been putting in over the past few months on building new trails and improving existing lines. The above photos are from the brand new Jump Park line in Les Gets, this trail is a double black graded expert Jump track, boasting over 26 jumps and features. All based under the Nauchets lift, check out the official video below.
Nauchettes existing trails have all seen a major revamp, with increased flow, big berms & more jumps added. Les Gets mainline has also seen a lot of work with some new sizeable jumps added and increased flow to get rid of those damn breaking bumps.
These trails are just a short lift ride away from our central Morzine summer accommodation. Check out the new Nauchettes flow trail video below by the talented Louis Citadelle, our Morzine based videographer.
As for new Morzine trail updates, the Avoriaz MTB crew that run Super Morzine trails have been putting in loads of work maintaining the existing awesome tracks and built a new hip at the top of Super Morzine. (Pictures below)
Morzine Bikepark / Ski pass Morzine who manage Le Pleney trails in Morzine centre, have been busy also, building a new pumptrack/ skills area at the top of Le Pleney. Plus, a new bottom half to the existing red trail on Le Pleney, this new trail is less steep and technical than the original bottom half, meaning the old trail exit is now classed as a black trail.
Pleney mainline has also seen some new sections added and some serious maintenance, whilst keeping the technical aspects alive such as root gardens and jumps.
Bikepark Champery Morgins have been going nuts on the maintenance, making every berm in sight absolutely vertical, imagine the G's you can clock around these things! There's no wonder Morgins bikepark is renowned for having some of the best berms in the World.
With all of these new trails popping up everywhere and far shorter lift lines than normal, 2020 really could be shaping up to be the best year yet to ride Morzine bike park.
