Les Gets MTB news

  • 2 days ago

Les Gets are planning lots of new improvements to the mountain biking for summer 2010. This should make the biking in the area even better than before.

The summer season will start on the 29th May (weekends only till the 12th June) and end on the 12th September 2010. CHANGES IN THE BIKE PARK:

This summer the Chavannes Express chairlift will be equipped with new frames enabling it to take 2 bikes per seat, an improvement which will significantly reduce waiting times for mountain bikers.

A new section has been added to the green run “Les Ecureuils” (on Chavannes), so that it is now accessible from two chair lifts: the Chavannes Express which leaves from the centre of Les Gets, and the Nauchets Express close to the Jump park. This new section also bypasses the 4x4 track above la Mouille ronde.

A new blue run has been built below the Nauchets Express, next to the Jump park. This will give riders of a medium standard access to an area that until now has only been accessible to more experienced riders.

A new red run has been built on the Nauchets section, next to the “North Shore Zone” (Lac du Plan du Rocher).

The Jump park has been enlarged at Nauchets with a “new expert run”

Reorganisation and enlargement of the Mini Jump park near the “Lac des Ecoles”(new obstacles)

Development of the “North Shore Zone” from “Lac du Plan du Rocher” with new obstacles.

The start of the “Dans le Gaz” piste has been changed so that walkers and mountainbikers no longer leave from the same departure point.
