ARRIVAL IN VERBIER. BE READY FOR YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE
Have you just made a long journey across several time zones to get to Switzerland? If so, we recommend that you arrive one or two days before you start your journey. This will allow your body to recover and will avoid any problems due to plane or luggage delays. It will also give you time to enjoy the beautiful Verbier.
DAY 1: SECRET SINGLETRAILS AND A CHARMING HISTORIC HOTEL
The journey begins with a nice descent on a flow trail that takes us to La Tzoumaz. After a good warm-up, you are ready to ride on an incredible alpine ridge. Sublime :).
Then, after crossing a forest we will arrive at Mandelon and you will get to know the famous Hérens cows. A balcony path will take us to a hidden pearl of the region. A sublime singletrail that is both rolling and playful. Pow pow pow! It’s time to let the horses loose. Forest roads will then take us to the unspoilt village of La Sage facing the impressive “Dent Blanche”, a peak of 4’357 metres. It’s time to have a brandy and relax in one of the sofas of our historic hotel dating back to 1890 while the chef puts his French touch to the fresh products of the region.

Take time to enjoy the marvelous landscape during your ride downhill: 4’000 meters high peaks and amazingly sky-blue mountain lakes. Welcome to the Alpine paradise. After a flowy ride down to the valley, the last ascent leads us to a unique Swiss beauty: a hotel settled on a sublime plateau with a panoramic view on a large panel of 4’000-meter-high mountains.

A super funny trail which go down the valley. Time to smile and enjoy the speed. After a little shuttle, we are back on a balcony trail over the valley which will make you enjoy riding uphill.
