Independent arrival and check in in the hotel.

DAY 2: The Big Ridge

From Aosta we take advantage of the shuttle before pedaling upwards to arrive at the top, high above the resort, where we’ll enjoy a 360deg view of the valley before descending. Starting on the ridge, then flowing through the forest, and coasting along a mellow trail beside an old river all the way back to town.

Altitude Gain: 1100m.
Descent: 2000m.

DAY 3: The Surfin Trail

The last big ride is a valley classic! We’ll take the shuttle to the Cogne Valley and a long ride up above the famous Lillaz waterfalls will take us to the Pas d’Invergneux. Surfing the contours as we descend down a wide valley, past an ancient mountain village and more waterfalls, before arriving for a beer on one of the most scenic terraces anywhere! From there a last descent before following the river back into Aosta.

Altitude Gain: 1500m.
Descent: 1600m.

DAY 4: Becca Trail

We’ll start in the shuttle again, taking us up 1000m to the end of the road. From there we’ll pedal up above the forest to ride the Becca France ridge. A historically important mountain and a never ending flow trail, back through the forest and down into the valley. Independent departure.

Altitude Gain: 900m.
Descent: 1600m.

Technical & Fitness levels

We ask all riders to review the “Technical and Fitness Rating System” to ensure you are confident riding on the level required for the particular rides you are interested in joining!

Please read the following guidelines carefully to ensure the ride of interest matches your technical level and fitness prior to booking your ride.


You can ride a bike and are happy riding on dirt roads with gentle climbs and descents.

You enjoy riding easy single track that isn’t narrow or technical and you know the basics of body position and how to brake and corner safely.  You enjoy riding in the mountains as long as it’s not too exposed or steep.  You’d maybe like to learn more to enable you to tackle more technical or narrower trails with roots and rocks.

Intermediate +
You are comfortable riding on narrow single track with some rocks and roots and are able to proactively ride most trails.  If the corners are too tight or the trail is too technical you are happy to walk a few meters, but you’d like to work on your skills to help you ride them.

You are comfortable riding almost any trail including steep rock sections, tight switch backs, off camber sections, roots, and narrow exposed single track in high mountain terrain.  You’ve ridden in the mountains and are not intimidated by sustained, steep descents that include all of these features.  You know when it’s better to get off the bike, but don’t have to often.

Pro Bro
You are a professional or sponsored mountain biker, and/or you compete regularly in national or international competitions.  You can ride all terrain pro-actively and safely, in any mountain environment or weather conditions.


You are happy riding for a few hours and are capable of climbing up to 500 vertical meters over the course of a day. 

You are happy riding for a several hours and are capable of climbing between 500-800 vertical meters over the course of a day.  You could ride like this for 2-3 consecutive days.

You are capable of riding for multiple days in a row at a moderate pace for several hours each day. You can handle moderately steep climbs of up to around 1000 vertical meters in a day including some pushing or carrying your bike if required.  You have ridden at altitude (2000 slm+) previously, and understand the effect it has on you.

You are capable of riding for multiple days for an average of 4-6 hours of pedal time each day. You can climb 1000-1500 vertical meters each day including pushing or carrying your bike over long sections (30-60mins) if required.  You have ridden at altitudes of over 2000 slm+ previously and are happy doing so, although you may have to go slower and take more breaks.

You are capable of riding for multiple days in a row for an average of 6-8 hours each day.  You can handle steep, sustained climbs of over 1,500m each day including pushing or carrying your bike over long sections (60mins+) if required.  Altitude is no problem to you and you are used to riding at over 2500 slm+.
