/ Good MTB areas in the Alps
theres a whole load of brill x country and downhill in the Portes du Soleil area. I'm a bit biased but Chatel makes a great place to base yourself - I got hooked on x country there last summer. You can use the lifts if you like or pedal like mad too. Also lots of single and multi pitch sports climbing around too with hardly anyone there climbing it. PM me if you want more specific info.
