How to ride a bike in Chamonix 2.021

Chamonix in a picture. Lots of sports, lots of geography, lots of blue sky.
All the information you need to ride your MTB in Chamonix. Lifts, passes, trails, life hacks, influence coaching and less.

Stealing Autumn. 

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Guest blog post written by expotus, or, how the fine mtb trails of Chamonix were stolen from a perfect mountain biking autumn by winter for snow and ice and corrupt radical skiing

Emosson dam / Things are generally better than you think they are.

It's dark, but keep heading for the light.
Some words exploring the mountain bike singletrack around Emosson dam, and that the world is probably better than you think it is. Probably.

How to ride a bike in Chamonix.

Chamonix. Grand, isn't it.
Your handy, one stop shop for everything you need to know to go mountain bike riding in Chamonix. Lifts, trails, restrictions, beer and bikes.

Abhorred monster.

Encore une fois, Chamonix: does good backdrop.
We went for a bike ride above Chamonix and the Mer de Glace, took some photos, then wrote about someone far cleverer than me, climate change and e-bikes. As you do.

The Ignoramus.

It's not just Les Houches, Coupeau's been seeing attention from the trail pixies too.
There's gold in them thar hills. Golden trails. Checking out the new mountain bike tracks appearing all over the Chamonix valley, but mostly in the Les Houches bit of the hood.

Feel the serenity.

Now THIS is where it gets interesting.
Two days on bikes playing around the Fiz range. Some huts, some climbs and some cracking descents. All that way just to pick up some content...

All the lifts.

The shot of the day, but where and when is it taken....?
We tried to ride every mountain bike accessible lift on the Chamonix Mont Blanc Unlimited lift pass. All 14 of them. Did we succeed? Well you'll need to read to find out won't you.

Lift openings 2018: Houston we have a problem.

Bikes are ace. Lifts, no lifts. Sun, no sun. Snow, no snow. Just get out and have fun.
When, what and where are the chairlifts and gondolas open for mountain biking across Chamonix and the alps. And some space stuff.
