  • Being a bit short on time doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to some scenic mountain biking. This long-weekend getaway offers the same experience—great company of women, mind-boggling Alpine trails, great food, and luxurious chalet—but works for those who want it short and sweet. Between Thursday and Sunday, you’ll learn what makes big mountain riding so epic, while getting richer for a confidence-boosting experience in a premier MTB destination.

    • Arrive in your chalet in Verbier by 4 pm, settle in and meet your guides and fellow riders. You will do a bike and gear check before a three-course dinner, during which you will get a chance to fully make yourself at home and spend some quality time with your group. At around 8 pm, a briefing with your guide will take place—you will discuss the program, personal goals and expectations, and receive some useful trail information. Get a good night’s sleep as your Verbier guided riding tour starts tomorrow.
      Meals: Dinner

       

      Main street of the town of Verbier, a charming Alpine town in Switzerland.
    • Your two riding days—Friday and Saturday—will begin with a laidback breakfast on the terrace, soaking in the morning sun and taking in the beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. By 9.15 am, you will be joining a daily briefing with your guide to discuss the objectives for that day. Mornings will be dedicated to riding skills and instruction. The time after lunch will be dedicated to enjoying the rides and testing the newly mastered skills. Your guide will make sure that your riding skill level matches the riding objectives—which definitely aren’t in short supply! Needless to say, there will always be time for numerous breaks allowing you to enjoy the views over the snow-capped peaks, glaciers, and beautiful alpine meadows. By 16.30 pm, you will have returned to your chalet. Unwind, do some stretching and get ready for your daily three-course dinners and doing other activities in the area according to your personal interests.

    • The regular Verbier MTB guided adventure, which takes place on July 9th-15th, 2023, is suitable for intermediate riders. This means that you’re good to go if you’ve just started trail mountain riding but have never tested your skills in high-altitude mountains. You should be able to handle all your local loops, control your speed, and do some hilly sections. Intermediate riders should have some experience with different riding locations and mid-level mountains and should be able to ride moderately steep singletrack descents and climbs with some loose rocks and roots, as well as be comfortable with some small unexpected steps and rock gardens. 

      The advanced Verbier MTB week-long adventure, taking place on September 3rd – 9th and 17th – 23rd, 2023, is suitable for those who love technical sections and have experience in alpine terrain. You should be in full control while riding any kind of singletrack, red runs in the bike park, and technical steep trails with stone drops, rough roots, small drops, and occasional little jumps.

      The long-weekend MTB getaway is suitable for both intermediate and advanced riders.

      Keep in mind that your guide will follow you every step of the way and give appropriate instruction, adjust the pace/terrain when necessary and make breaks whenever riding becomes too strenuous. 

    • Extensive riding experience is necessary for both the regular and the advanced adventure option. That said, no biking experience in alpine terrain is necessary for the intermediate tour. You should be comfortable with pedaling for around 3 hours a day and crossing up to 30 km (around 20 miles), with an elevation gain of around 600 m (1,970 ft).

      For the advanced tour, MTB experience in alpine terrain is necessary. You should be able to ride for 6+ hours in challenging terrain, crossing over 50 km (31 miles), with an elevation gain of 1,600 m (5,250 ft). Keep in mind that you will receive extensive instruction and that your guide will find a balance between “pure” riding and daily skills training. Also, the pace and the terrain can be adjusted if you encounter any difficulties.

      For the long-weekend getaway, MTB experience is also necessary, but both intermediate and advanced riders are more than welcome.
