XC – Cross Country

For the XC die-hards, the almost never-ending trails wind their way up and down the mountains, through the alpine forests, crossing rivers and through alpine pastures. Covering the boarder between France & Switzerland, the trails are superb examples of mountain biking at its best. The ‘Tour’ of the Portes-du-Soleil is an 80km marked trail looping round the whole region.  Every year the Portes du Soleil celebrates the opening of the lifts with a special event called the Pass’Portes du Soleil, which attracts over 6000 riders to take on the 85km loop of the PdS.
