    Mont Avril
    Description

    The tour starts in Mauvoisin because you can take a post bus up to here. Then you’re on your own for a bit as you climb the lane up to the dam, then heading south through the tunnel system. The gravel lane runs along the reservoir until the valley finally narrows. Then it’s a serpentine climb up to until it’s time to hoof it at Alp Grand Charmotane. It’s just another 800 metres up to the summit of Mont Avril. You can push the bike as far as Fenêtre de Durand, but then you’re going to have to carry it up the steep flank of the mountain to the summit, 3347 metres above sea level! Mont Avril is one of the highest points in the Alps that can be reached by mountain bike. And the effort is worth it. You’ll descend the same way you just climbed, but now you have all the fun of surfing on gravel as you make the steep descent. The section back to Alp Grand Charmotane and finally to the bridge at Lac Mauvoisin is more flowy. Then it’s a gentle roll back to Mauvoisin over the gravel road. Instead of taking the post bus back to Le Châble, you will start the journey out of the valley on your own. The descent starts with a single trail, until the power plant at Fionnay, where you will follow the road, where just below the dam another singletrail starts. Follow the signs to Lourtier and cycle on the highways back to Le Châble. You’ll have ascended and descended 2500 metres by the end of this tour.
