Heads up to head up

Midi descent

After 3 weeks away from Chamonix and off the bike, it’s good to be back. To celebrate*, Compagnie du Mont-Blanc are opening up the Brevent gondola for 2 weeks from Saturday 27th October to Sunday 11th November, so get up there whilst you can as it’s pretty much the last chance on this side of the Alps to get some lift accessed riding done till the snow melts.


Of course, there’s still plenty of riding to do in and around Chamonix whether there’s lifts running or not, and till the snows properly arrive (and possibly even after) the trails will still be getting ridden.

Autumn on midi

*It’s possible the French half term holidays may have more to do with the opening than my return.
