Valmorel embodies the spirit and art of mountain living, a strong character crowned with simplicity and tradition. Stone and wood chalets, slate roofs, trompe l'oeil facades..., the architecture blends harmoniously with the surrounding wild landscapes.
In a very welcoming natural setting, the mountain bike domain has several undeniable assets to fully enjoy this site on two wheels. The event's routes wind through mountain pastures and forests up to 2,000 m in altitude. But many other routes will criss-cross mineral peaks, torrents, grandiose landscapes and traditional activities.
So don't wait any longer to take your number and come and discover a mountain bike site with a unique diversity!
