Enduro MTB Trails

All and cross country mountain bike trails

There are a real mixture of enduro rides to be had in the area, from picturesque valley and wooded rides to more exposed ridge lines and descents to the valley floor. 

Trails are graded from the easier 'Improver' to 'Advanced' and 'Expert' depending on the technical nature of the trails or how much climbing uphill is involved. 

Improver Trails:

On the Val d'Isere side Flower Power is a short link coming off the Borsat Attak DH trail covering just 1.5km and -160m with no uphill. 

Two trails can be found on the Palafour side of Tignes bike park - Cow Lanta & Trailspotting. 

Cow Lantra starts not far from the bottom of the Palafour lift and turns into a loop with views of the lake and back again. 6km +350m -350m

Trailspotting is an 8km loop around the top of the Palafour lift and passes the Lacs du Chardonnet. +350m -350m

Wonderboisses starts in the centre of Tignes and takes you all the way down to Les Brevieres (great at the end of the day if you're camping down there). It has amazing views over the dam and the lake. 4km long. +75m -530m

Advanced Trails: 

On the Val d'Isere side: Into the Wild starts from part way doe Val Bleue DH trail and then traverses right into the head of the Manchet Valley. The descent into the valley is pretty spectacular and the trail ends at the bottom of the Olympique lift. 8km long, there is no climbing, just -840m of sweet descent!

Palaf is a 2.5km long trail starting from part way down Smoothie green DH track. It traverses the mountain and joins up with Rocky Trail at the end (below). +75 m -300m

Rocky Trail is a 7km long trail starting from teh top of the Palafour lift, heading over in the direction of Brevieres. It joins with Wonderboisses trail at the bottom overlooking the dam. +150m -880m

Ice Tignes is a ridge line trail running from the top of the Toviere lift across towards Borsat. It's 10km long +150m -730m and joins up with Sweet Sweet blue DH track at the end or Val Bleue if you want to head back into Val d'Isere.
