Hut to Hut bike E-xperience
a 5 days introduction into alpine riding
This trip is an introduction into hut to hut alpine riding. With only a day daypack we take off for a 5 days hut to hut ride. Skilifts help us gaining the extra altitude meters to enjoy even more downhill rides, shredding down by natural singletracks and manmade downhills tracks. Using an E-bike ables us to cross the valley quickly and cover distances in a short period of time to get the best out of these 5 days.

After a first night in the valley, our Hut to Hut E-nduro adventure is starting. In 5 days we will ride some awesome trails around Chamonix enjoying the most amazing views of Mont Blanc. Bike guide Arno will teach you how to ride Alpine trails and how you deal with obstacles and challenges you will face on these rides. After an exciting day on the bike, we arrive at our next mountainhut. Before enjoying a well deserved beer, we first have to wash our bikegear for the next day riding. On this trip we are self supporting, so we have to pack as light as we can.
Every night we will sleep on a different location, mainly in authentic and remote mountainhuts. Some are having a shower, but most haven't. But luckily they do propose a nice meal, a cold beer and a bed though, which is very welcome after a long day on the bike. Dinners and breakfasts are included, for lunch we have to buy a picnic or eat in a mountain restaurant.
Every day we use skilifts where possible. This can be a one way ticket or a full day pass, depending on the interest of the area and the way we have to travel. To cover bigger distances and get the most out of these 5 days, we choose for E-enduro bikes. To enjoy this trip you need to be reasonably fit, you need to have experience with singletracks and gravity and you need to have an adventurous and flexible spirit.
Every day we ride about 50km's, 800m up (and the rest by skilifts) and 2000m down, by natural singletracks and manmade downhill paths.
