MTB / Downhill in the Alpes

The region of the l’Oisans is also very good for people who want to mountain bike or downhill. The region has a lot of very steep cross country routes and challenging single tracks to descent from. Also a lot of mountain bike events take place in the village of Oz Station.

From the Auberge you can take your MTB/Downhill in the free bus to Oz Station and from there the gondolas can take you up to the Pic Blanc in Alpe d’Huez. The gondolas are open in July and August.

At the Auberge we have information on several mountain bike routes for you to explore.

MTB and Downhill events

In the summer there are a few downhill events in the region like the famous MegAvalanche. The endurance marathon starts on the glacier of Pic Blanc (3330 meter) and finishes 30 kilometres further in Allemont (730 meter). This year it takes place from the 3rd until the 9th of July 2017.
