Minimum 5 riders, 10% discount for 8 or more
So, you thought it was all over for the winter... Think again!!
How about a unique winter holiday mixing up some of the most fun you ever thought you could have. Skiing/Snowboarding, mountainbiking, night riding and Fatbiking all in one action packed week.
You can bring your own bike/fatbike or rent one of ours. We can Ride or Slide in a mix to suit your group and we offer 2 nightrides per week using Fatbikes for the ultimate in "Enduro" fun.
Here in the Pyrenees Orientales we can even ski in the morning and spend the afternoon riding on dry, dusty (yes!! Dusty!!) trails only minutes from the "Mouli"
We tailor each week's riding to the group’s desires and abilities. How many days do we spend on trails and on the snow? How many days on Ski or bike? We'll help you decide!
For these trips we recommend all riders have a high level of natural mountainous singletrack riding ability Trail riding protection is strongly advised for night rides and natural trail days. You will also need clothing adapted for riding in cold environments (if you are unsure contact us for more information).
We have an immense variety of skiing available to us spread over 3 countries, France (Neiges Catalanes ski area 300km of pistes), Spain (La Molina and Massella) and Andorra (Grand Valira ski area 400km of pistes) with the nearest lift only 300m from our base at the Mouli. We know these ski stations well having skied and borded here for over 10years and can advise you on where to go for the best conditions each day.
From completely snowed up singletrack packed down by snowshoers to give the perfect rolling surface to dry trails we have it all...
How about the all time favourite 'Descent to Olette' in winter! (1300m of singletrack downhill) starting in the snow and finishing in T'shirts. Check out the video below.
The Ridge of Doom, the Descent de Yann and the Scorpion Tail uplift linked (1800m of super technical singletrack descent).
The Garrotxes trilogy of the Noissetiers, the Apache Indian and Auiguatibia (translates as "hot water" and is pretty apt!) then finishing with one of the Oreilla trails giving 2200m of singletrack descent in the day.

Jonny Richards reports on Font Romeu and the Neiges Catalanes area... "If you're bored of queues, bend-over prices and hellish transfer demands of the French Alps, this historic area might just be the answer". "The friendly helpful locals are the antithesis of their alpine compatriots". "This resort encapsulates all that is good about the Pyrenees, with deserted pistes, more sunshine than any other French ski Destination (over 3000 hrs last season) and a town centre packed with more old school charm than Nigel Havers.
