Beaucoup de neiges

Almost all the bike uplift is now running in the Chamonix valley, with just the Vallorcine and Grand Montets telecabines left to open on the 30th June. Pretty much all the walking trails off the lifts are clear of trees and the “Elfe Secret” track at Flegere was nearly clear on Monday and should be clear by now.

Flegere, open for business...

There is a wee fly in the ointment though, whilst the Brevant telecabine and Index chairlift are running, bikes aren’t being allowed on for just now as there’s too much snow to ride! The lifties reckon the Index will be open for bikes next week, hopefully the trails from the top of Brevant will be passable soon too. Till then, it’s time to get as much natural riding in as possible before the bike ban starts on the 1st July!
