World Class Mountain Biking
A friend of ours works for a mountain bike company. He came to Chalet Feiler, with bikes and a chariot for the kids one Summer and we started to test out some of the hundreds of bike tracks around us. They are amazing. There are a range of tracks and roads from easy to technical world-class routes. It is possible to rent bikes and the local shop will deliver them to our chalet. They have chariots and child seats too. You can also try electric bikes which are perfect for people who want to go uphill with ease (makes the whole experience a lot more enjoyable unless you are a serious biker). For enthusiasts, this is paradise (apparently!). Our friend comes every year and calls it his secret spot.
From the chalet you can whizz down to Veysonnaz, get the gondola up to the top of the mountain and then cycle to either Alpage Thyon or Les Chottes for lunch (both have incredible views and large sun decks). There are hundreds of routes back down to the chalet or you can go down the entire mountain to Sion and get a bus (or a willing friend) to take you back up if you are not game to cycle it! Contact our friend Nico or Max at Neige Adventure to arrange hire of everything you need. They also do guiding for enthusiasts (highly recommended).
