Super Morzine Switchback

I'ts been 3 years since I was last on it but I still think about it daily. Very, very fast. Not very steep and no major big hits unless you look for then off the sides. It is massive in length and is a real challenge to keep going 'cause your pumped up after a few mins and the ride goes on for, what feels like, half an hour. As the name says you are switching direction, following a large 'zig - zag' down with true drifting slalom turns. Magic. the straight bits are a good mix of ruts, rolling bumps (for air), loose gravel, rocky drops and a little bit of technical (you can jump the tech bits if you are mad) The locals even cheer and clap as you thunder passed them. Get a bike and a ticket to France. You will not regret it.

FLOW, FLOW, FLOW! Think of a nice flowing river and you have the idea. Really nice berms turn arter turn. Fast and fluid. There is no need to Jam on the brakes, it has a few nice little jumps. What a blast! Make sure you ride this trail.

Recommended Route:
Up the lift and straight back down!
