Alps. DH. Wade. Joe.

Downhill Mountain Biking in Switzerland. This is the ultimate DH trip in the Alps. Ride trails that few people know about from the Verbier area, up the Rhone Valley to Zermatt, with lift-accessed riding that’s comparable to Mavericks for surfers or Alaska for skiers. We’ll have days with 20,000+ feet of descending and might even hit more than 100,000 vertical feet of descending over the week. Guided by Joe Schwartz.

Alpenrock DH will take you to another level. “Switzerland is mountain biking’s Shangri-La. Epic descents on flowy singletrack, through ancient villages, a capuccino, back on the bike, jump on the gondola and do it all over the next day.” – Mitchell S.

The Itinerary:

Day 01 Meet your guides at Geneva airport and transfer to Verbier. Shuttle Backyard Booty.

Day 02 Fantastic day of lift-accessed descents in Verbier. The last 5000-foot descent to our hotel is unreal.

Day 03 Shuttle day on Rolling Orgy, Medieval Flow and more. Lap it up.

Day 04 More action on the Verbier bike park. The record in one day is 22,000 feet of descent.

Day 05 Ride Crans-Montana and it’s high alpine berms, rolling jumps and lunch on a patio.

Day 06 On our way to Zermatt we’ll ride two shuttles that are off the charts fun and really, really big.

Day 07 Each lap in Zermatt provides 4500 ft (1500 m) of descent. We’ll choose a lift and hit it.

Day 08 Another day of DH bliss in Zermatt. With 29 peaks above 4000 m, the views are unreal.

Day 09 Transfer to Geneva for your flight home.
