Some helpful info before taking to the trails
All our trails are specifically designed for downhill mountain biking with various technical features.
Green trail / Beginner level
Wide machine made trails on a gentle gradient with low banked corners and small technical features.
Designed for new downhill mountain bikers already comfortable with riding flat trails.
These trails are the “easiest” we can offer, but remember, there is no “easy” in downhill mountain biking and the trails may still be considered “hard” to beginners.
S’cool zone / Beginner level
Flat zone to test yourself and gain confidence on small obstacles and features. Accessible directly from the chairlifts, this is the ideal place to find your feet before starting your first descent.
Blue trail / intermediate level
Wide machine made trails on a slightly steeper gradient with tighter corners and medium sized technical features.
Suited for riders who are already comfortable on green trails.
Red trail / advanced level
Narrower trails on a steeper gradient with tighter corners and larger technical features. The terrain is more changeable so expect rocks, roots and off cambers sections.
Suited to riders who are already comfortable on blue trails and have good tech,ical riding skills.
Black trail / expert level
Narrow trails on the steepest gradients and with the largest technical features. Expect to encounter the biggest jumps and drops, as well as the terrain that requires skilful riding.
Warming up on intermediate and advanced trails is encouraged.
We provide ride-arounds from some non-rollable obstacles but remember the ride around is still graded to the trail.
A new tool to help riders progress created in partnership with Santa Cruz Bicycles.
Which trail to begin with and which one to ride next?
The answers are obvious with the progression scale of the Avoriaz Bikepark. The scale classifies the tracks according to their difficulty, from the easiest to the most difficult, making it easy to plan your ride and progress with confidence to more technical trails.
