I am heading to the Alps this July for a few weeks of downhill biking. Only really interested in descending using the uplift systems.

Our plan was the following:

Les Deux Alpes - 2 days Went Skiing there this year and looks excellent
Alpe D' Huez - 1 day Is it any good? haven't tried this resort..
Serre Chevaleir - 1 day Is it any good? haven't tried this resort..
Montgenevre - 1 day Is it any good? haven't tried this resort..
Bardonecchia - 1 day Is it any good? haven't tried this resort..
Prali - 1 day Is it any good? haven't tried this resort..
Sestriere - 1 day Is it any good? haven't tried this resort..
Sauze d'Oulx - 1 day Is it any good? haven't tried this resort..
Pila - 1-2 days Went last year was excellent
La Thuile - 1-2 days Went last year was excellent
Tignes / Val D'Isere 2-3 days Went last year was excellent
Les Arc - 1 day Been a few times not fussed either way
Meribel - 1 day Went last year was excellent

Anyone have experience with the resorts I haven't been to?

Anyone know anything about the Modane area??

Anyone have any other ideas, suggestions or experience i would be keen to know?

Thanks.

    I speant a week in Morzine last year. Loads of well made trails of various gradings. Close to Les Gets/Chatel. Lots of lifts with easy access.

    Well worth a look!

    If you are at Morzine/Les Gets and have your own vehicle go to Samoens,over the Col du Joux Plane from Morzine,more enduro style trails but not that many riding there in the week,spent 3 days there 2 years ago and really liked the place
