DOWNHILL TRAILS: ALL LEVELS
Domaine CYCLO-VTT-VAE Courchevel

There’s not much that beats whizzing along a green grade or blue grade trail on our “Funny Tracks” as an introduction to the joys of mountain biking on the slopes at Courchevel. And, if you’re familiar with this area for skiing, you’ll be glad to know that the technical level of the cycle routes is similar to the skiing routes, and access is the same - via the free gondola des Verdons.

ENDURO COURSE
Domaine CYCLO-VTT-VAE Courchevel

Fans of Enduro mountain bikes will be thrilled by the many circuits that crisscross the villages of Courchevel, the forests, alpine pastures and high mountain passes, past Mont Blanc and high-altitude lakes, the legendary peaks of the Vanoise Massif such as the Great Casse... You won't believe your eyes! But you will need to concentrate because though the landscapes are sublime, the routes are technical and the terrain varies widely (earth, grass, mud, pebbles, tar, fords, donkey track, trail) and descents can be sometimes steep.

There is a track to suit everyone at all levels - from green and blue right through to black. See route: l’Intégral.

L'INTÉGRAL
Domaine CYCLO-VTT-VAE Courchevel

If you could choose just one route during your stay in Courchevel, it should without doubt be this one. But beware, L'Integrale isn’t for everyone, this magnificent track is only for experienced riders looking for an exciting challenge and who are not afraid of high-speed cycling as they tackle this whopping 13km track!
The starting point is impressive. At 2738m high, Sommet de la Saulire mountain (accessible free of charge by the Verdons gondola and La Saulire cable car), the views are magical: Mont Blanc, the Grande Casse, the glaciers of the Vanoise... After you’ve enjoyed the views, it's time to get on your bike and take the descent to Lake Praz, 1430m below. Beneath your wheels, the varied terrain will fly by: sometimes rocky, smoother as you cross the pastures, more technical on the raised curves of the Funny track, and a glorious finish on the steep tracks of the Praz forest.

-Black Track
-Departure cable car Sommet de la Saulire/Arrival Alpinium Courchevel Le Praz
-Levels: -1430, +50
