      "THE" Bikepark of Europe

      A well designed bikepark, meticulously shaped, offering everything from the flowy green to the gnarliest double black slope.

      Riding on the Famous Vinkline, Vorachatak , Air Voltage or any of the twenty -ich slope that Châtel Bikepark offers ;

      Here it is all about "AIR TIME" 

      But if you are more into gnarly downhill or more natural slopes you will have fun on most of the black slopes like "Bikepatrol" or "Chânada" , a mix of steep and tech.

      Since summer 2022 châtel is also part of the French Cup and will host the UCI Enduro new format in september.

      The Swiss side of Portes du Soleil is also the "wild side"

      An intermediate level is required as the terrain is quite demanding but i will be pleased to coach you there. 

      Most of the tracks are steep and technical but you ll find some good blue slopes with a lot of flow.

      The shaper crew make a really nice job and you ll find some of the "nicest berms in the world".

      And if you dare give a go on the famous Worlcup track in Champery

    • Bike park Bernex


      "Freeride good vibe"

      Bernex is based 25 minutes away from chatel and is not a part of "portes du soleil" 

      Bernex Bikepark quickly became a "must go to" park and one of my favorite.

      Built and shaped by Bike Vision this park offer you 6 tracks,

      Beginners will find one of the best green slope i ever rode in a beautiful forest, it is smooth, flowy not steep and pretty long, have fun!

      But here there is a good taste of freeride, try "Backcountry" or "wood roots " to check it out.

      And if you love spending your time in the air dare to try the drop zone at the bottom of the hill, or the newest slope "The Chill Line" made by Vinny T and Seb Giraldi. 

      No doubt that i will be pleased to coach you there!
