In reply to the power: les 2 Alps is now charging for MTB lift passes so not really a + compared to elsewhere now.

I would really recomend the porte du soleil, plenty of fun to be had :-)

In reply to the power: the vids I have seen of Austrian riding make it look great and probably less full of English than the French alternatives.

A couple of summers ago I made a trip to Saalbach-Hinterglem in Austria. There were some nice looking trails, mainly down hill, but for all levels. They're on my to do list. Google the Milka run.

I'm very interested in answers to this... also looking.

BUT am particularly interested in places where my wife, who doesn't bike, will have things to do, and where I won't feel too old (at 37 - confess I'm not 21 any more!).

Im off to les arcs on the 10th, first trip out there, and will report back in a few weeks, but looking at research on the internet it seems to be a really good place for single track reds, particularly "back country" unmarked routes. Going with trail addiction, 5days guided riding accomodation, food and drinks (but not lift passes) for 550.

Ecrin / Qeuyras area is very good. Lift assisted bike parks in Vars, Les Orres,Serre Chevalier,Montgenevre/Claviere. Miles of paths across the Queyras going right up to the Italian Border. Lots to do for the non bikers. Mountain walks and climbing. Lakes and rivers for swimming and water activities, via feratta, icecreams, cakes and wine.

Portes du Soleil for sure - lots of red routes, masses of other options too outside of the bike park and an affordable lift pass compared to other places. Morzine makes for a good base aswell as Chatel - let me know if you want more info! Ali

Moline and Les Gets have good established MTBing for a wide range of abilities. There's also good, though less established, biking at Samoens and at Sixt Fer a Cheval.
