    Planning of spending the summer in the alps, suggestions welcome

    Hey guys,
    After spending 2 weeks last year in Morzine I got hooked. I want to make it 2 months this year (July and August).

    I plan to continue working full time most of the period. So basically it will be like hit the trails for a few hours in the morning and then work remotely for the rest of the day.

    Do you think the PDS area has enough trails to keep one busy for 2 months? Are there better places in the French alps. I am an All Mountain rider myself and I love flowly long singletrack. Sure downhill is fun but not all the time.

    I heard the Les Arcs area is better in that regard. However what is good about PDS is that there are LOADS of trails and if I get bored of singletrack I can hit a downhill course or do some flowly XC.

    Do you have any other suggestions?
    Thanks!

    PDS should keep you busy for two months, loads of XC/AM trails beyond the DH trails, plus all the "secret trails" and if you've hit all the trails and want to explore more than grab a hiking map and have a look at all the trails that are only 5km from PDS, 10km, 20km etc, etc. The Alps are full of trails no matter where you go.
    Switzerland doesn't need a bike park, Switzerland is a bike park.

    Stick to Morzine

    Stick to Morzine, really good ride.

    Can't make it this summer but next year will be my 3rd summer in Morzine.

    Stayed several places ranging in quality and price - head to L'Aiglon de Morzine

    They have private uplift service from Aiglon to Les Gets, workbench and tools to use, washing station, workshop stands etc

    Would recommend Morzine to anyone
