It's singletrack all the way down, starting with a load of rocky drainage runs to hop over and then a couple of full-on rock gardens. Nice and technical but all rideable. Then into some tight switch backs. At this point, you're riding between avalanche catchers and the steepness and exposure become very much apparent. Then some more flowing singletrack and switchbacks before finally arriving back near to the cable car where we started. Truly amazing but the best is yet to come.
With the adrenaline still pumping, it's straight back onto the cable car and chairlift. This time we head off in front of us, crossing a couple of sections of snow which is still hanging around from the winter - not too much of a surprise as we are pretty high. This climb is steep but only about 15 minutes. I can assure you though the trail we were about to ride is worth any amount of climbing.
Whilst staying at the Aiglon, if you fancy a day trip away like this one, we would always recommend having a guide. We can arrange this for you with our MTB guide partner 'Rideability'. On a final note, sorry that there are not more pictures of the descents but basically I was having too much fun to stop and interrupt the flow of the trails. I'll apologise now as this maybe a recurring theme on my blogs.
