Description

Climbing up to Col De Mille will take your breath away. Literally and figuratively speaking. Mostly rideable for the strong but some portage required to get to the Col. A beautifully renovated cabin has views of Verbier, Mt Blanc massif, Mt Velan and into Italy. Its worth taking your time here to take it all in before dropping into an experience that may stay with you for the rest of your mountain biking life. A trail that was created by a mountain biking loving God slithers its way under the mammoth north face of Mt Rogneux. A roller coaster that mixes tech pedalling challenges and dh requirements will have you breathing hard. Highlight is the trail that runs down a fin of a moraine. Crazy! You'll find yourself traversing past some perfect little lakes. Take a dip if you dare or just admire the place before moving onto the traverse/climb and the next meadowed section that will produce multiple whoops of joy from all! Pick up a fireroad to join into the lower section of Six Blanc - Vesegeres.
