Handy hints from Mountain Base
  • Beginner? Stick to a hard-tail bike – much easier to go uphill. 
  • If you’re going downhill don’t try it without adequate protection. Trust us, it hurts when you fall off.
  • Access the higher trails with a Mont Blanc Multipass lift ticket - take your bike on the cable cars, gondolas and chairlifts for some long descents
