A real "coup de coeur" stay with a focus on single tracks...
10 years of connections with the Val d'Allos and the Refuge du Lac have led us to set up this unique programme to help you discover the nuggets of the Haut Verdon and the Terres noires de Dignes during a single stay. The scenery will be varied because from the top of the Col d'Allos, the starting point of the famous Transverdon, it is a real tumble into the hinterland that awaits you. From larches to Scots pines, from alpine pastures to grey marl, from the torrents of Allos to the streams of Archail, ... this formula straddling the line between All Mountain and Enduro promises some great moments on your bike.
Thanks to our logistician and a guide with a good knowledge of the terrain, it's a nice mix of mountain biking and enduro specials on the highlights of Haute Provence... A real treat!

Lunch at the restaurant
FURTHER TRAINING = Services focused on learning and riding techniques. In a course format with half-day teaching modules or in a stay format with often a half-day of improvement (depending on level) in the morning and hiking in the afternoon to enjoy the mountain. Mainly in the Guillestrois Queyras
DISCOVERY = Easy to moderate level tours that encourage contemplation and explanations of the natural and cultural heritage, where the difference in altitude is moderate, the risk of falling and the technical requirements are low. In star or itinerant form, in France or in the Italian Piedmont
ALL MOUNTAIN = Mountain oriented trips where the pleasure of pedalling and climbing takes on its full dimension. For those who already have a minimum of technical knowledge in both climbing and descending, who obviously like the adrenalin and technicality of single descents but who are more interested in contemplating the high altitude landscapes rather than accumulating descents at all costs
ENDURO = Still in the high mountains on shared or dedicated routes, with a clear focus on descent rather than contemplation. We still pedal but this time we increase the ratio with a morning shuttle to reach between 1200 to 1500m of D+ and 2500m of D-. Protective gear is highly recommended and respect for other mountain users is mandatory.
SHUTTLE ENDURO = Clearly for downhillers who are looking for adrenaline and the technicality of the descent on trails dedicated to this practice as much as possible. The ratio is increased here with logistical support throughout the day to reach 1000m of D+ on the way up and 3000m of D-. Protection is strongly recommended and respect for other mountain users is mandatory.
