All the ingredients required for a great MTB ride. From the top of the Pic Blanc, set off along the glacier. Go through the tunnel and ride along the flat section of the glacier to the Herpie ski lift. Just above, take a wide stony path. The Sentier de la Cristallière path then takes you on a long, quite technical, traverse. Once at the cairn, you switch to the resort side of the valley and ride through the grassland above the resort to the Col de Poutran. Go up to the Chemin de Sardonne track and carry on to the valley, following the many signposts. Cross the iron footbridge over the Eau d’Olle River. Take the right-hand track to the swimming pool, where your shuttle will be waiting for you. Take care, don’t overestimate your level and check the weather forecast. Your bike must be in tiptop condition.
