Alpi bike resort
Sauze d’Oulx bike park is one of 8 locations that make up the Alpi Bike Resort. An international team of experts from the mountain bike world came together to create an area that’s both exciting and challenging with an emphasis on gravity. All the trails use the natural terrain well, combine that with many man made features and the result is great flowing runs that weave their way through the area’s larch forests.
There are 12 runs in total, mainly graded red which should satisfy even the most discerning riders. 2 black runs will provide a little extra challenge for those wanting to push themselves. Sportinia Express is one of those black runs. It’s 2.73km long and a total descent of 525m. At the end of this you have the option to join Tippy’s Witch, the Bike Park’s longest run with a total length of 3.4km and a descent of 525m.
The park is serviced by the Jouvenceaux chairlift which opens from 10am – 5pm. (closed for lunch between 1pm & 2pm). For the summer of 2019 it will open for the weekend of the 13th July and then full time from the 20th July until the 25th August. Ticket prices: 1 day €20; 2 days €38; 3 days €50 and 6 days €70. A season pass costs €150.There is also a bus service that links all the resorts giving you the opportunity to ride the other areas in Alpi Bike resort.
