The lift system takes you and your bike to around 50 specialist trials. There are downhill runs from easy to insanely difficult and they are graded accordingly. The enduro or cross country trials make use of the downhill runs with linking trails.
All the ski shops in town turn to bike shops where you can hire or buy any amount of equipment you like. All the bars and restaurants reopen for the summer season from late June when the lifts open to their close in early September.
There are 12 resorts linked by lifts and trails and includes 4 world renowned bike parks. In total there are 20 lifts and 100 of kms of trails. Each bike park offers a different experience.
