Riding in a postcard

Zermatt in Switzerland is surrounded by the high mountains of the main ridge of the alps. One of the most famous ones, the Matterhorn, always in sight, the trails wind down from high alpine areas like the over 3.000m high Gornergrat.

Over rocky and technical terrain there are long descents with 1.400vm down to the idyllic mountain village. The access is easy and the many lifts and trains take you and your bike up.

Rarely we have experienced such a density of fantastic, long, natural single tracks like here in Zermatt. Especially the trails lower down, below the tree line are awesome and offer with their natural rhythm more flow than any built trail could.

In 2019 the trails will proof also their racing qualities with one stop of the Enduro World Series and already this year you can compete in the European Enduro Series in Zermatt
