Passportes du Soleil 2018 Mountain Bike Event

The big event every summer in the Portes du Soleil is the PassPortes du Soleil. An annual event that showcases the fantastic mountain biking on offer in the area as all the resorts (Les Gets, Morzine, Avoriaz, Chatel, Morgins, Le Crosets, Champery and Torgon) open their lifts and the whole area becomes accessible from the end of June to the middle of September.

The Passportes route uses 16 of the 24 available summer lifts in the Portes du Soleil and covers 80km through France and Switzerland.  The route takes you down 6000m of decent with just 1000m of climbing.  Using the chair lifts to take out a lot of the hard work and get you to the top in no time.  The Passportes route is set up to showcase the best tracks and views the area has to offer and it is a truly stunning ride.  There are eight refreshment stops along the way with drinks (even beer), snacks, meals and entertainment making the whole day not just a great mountain bike ride but a fantastic experience with a great atmosphere.

It is a fantastic day out for all levels of biker.  For the more experienced right through to the more steady rider who enjoys the scenery, atmosphere and a more sedate pace of mountain biking!  To complete the whole circuit takes a good level of fitness and determination, but with the emphasis being on a fun day out, you’re guaranteed to want to come back again next year.

The 2018 Passportes du Soleil mountain biking event will take place on the 29th June to 1st July 2018.  This will be the 15th Edition of the event and its popularity just keeps growing from year to year.  The 2017 Passportes du Soleil saw over 7814 riders taking part with over 2500 tickets being sold in the first 20 minutes of them being available.
