    September inthe Alps in VERY hit and miss but is otside the peak time so you pays your money and you takes your chance.

    At the moment the Euro is strong so everywhere is expensive !!

    Any particular reason why you want to go to Les Gets and Morzine ?? There are loads of other places in Europe with good biking but a lot less Brits!! Always a good option in my book !! :wink:

    Thanks for the advice. Mainly because i've heard good stuff about Morzine, it would work out quite cheap, and it isn't too far away.

    Anywhere else where you can travel by ferry ideally - but flying aswell...
  • July and August all the lifts are open but it's busier. Within those months the trails tend to be quieter in august, than in july. In June and early september, there are less lifts, but still loads of great trails, cheaper accommodation and a lot quieter.

    All depends what you're after!

    Surely it's got to be February/March? The skiing's awful in the Summer: you end up having to cycle everywhere.
  • Well you could always try this at the end of June

    Only 40 euros to take part, seems good value
    75 km (74 downhill)
