/ "Nice" mountain biking venue - Alps
It could mean a slight detour for you but Les Gets , Morzine & Montriond region has a lot of nice cross country trails , I had to stay off the downhill courses one season as broke collarbone early on( again ) so I rode a lot of the mellower routes , there are some nice rides along the river through Morzine , stunning scenery . Avoriaz is good too & not so far away.
Also along side a lot of the downhill tracks ( black runs ) there are much less technical and smoother red & green runs . Ashamed to say that I haven't done many of these yet but I hope to soon .
Coincidentally I have a similar need for info on where best to go riding in the Rhone Valley area to supplement a short clmbing trip. I want something that is challenging for me but not too outfacing as a reasonably fit intermediate grade rider (reds and easy blacks in the UK, wheels mostly on the ground, rollable dropoffs accepted but no high and/or narrow wood). The link lists so many maps I don't know where to start. I would need to narrow down a shortlist of venues and before getting the relevant trail maps. For other approachhes I find I cannot interpret the guide companies info on how good/fit I should be for different rides (or how easy are the copout options from downhill jumpy blacks: I don't want to be stuck on flat valley rides).
As a starting point can anyone suggest the best intermediate venues in the Swiss Rhone valley area based on the above background as upper
