A pioneer territory for electric mountain biking

Electric mountain biking (VAE – Vélo à assistance électrique or e-bike) is a booming practice that requires a suitable playing field so that the climb is as exciting as the descent.

A pioneer in terms of electric mountain biking, the area offers 43 developed trails, or 350 km of marked out paths specifically for this practice. Among these trails, the Uphill Flow specially designed for the pleasure of riding to be permanent, both up and down. These trails will allow you to make the most of your electrically-assisted bicycle’s capabilities. Monotony has no place on the ebike routes offered by the Portes du Soleil!

Since 2012, the 12 resorts of Abondance, Avoriaz 1800, Champéry, Châtel, La Chapelle d’Abondance, Les Gets, Montriond, Morgins, Morzine-Avoriaz, St Jean d’Aulps, Torgon and Val-d’Illiez Les Crosets Champoussin have been working to offer suitable routes without fear of the difference in altitude thanks to electric assistance. And if you don’t have an electric bike, you can try it out in one of the many electric bike rental stores. These passionate renters offer state-of-the-art equipment that will satisfy all your requirements.
