Downhill/ Bikepark

On the downhill from the top of Berneuse back to Leysin village, riders negotiate a dramatic 700m drop on this steep descent. From tracks with differing scalabilities to a terrain designed to accentuate the adrenalin rush, it all adds up to make for a breathtaking ride.

Leysin has already made a name for itself in the world of mountain biking and offers the real deal for all enthusiastic riders. The natural makeup of Leysin’s mountain terrain means mountain biking can be tackled in all its forms : cross-country, descent, enduro and « dirt ».

The downhill trails start right at the top of Berneuse, high above the village of Leysin. Depending on their level, riders can choose several options allowing them to test out their current skills and to improve on new ones. There are steep bends and ramp jumps along the way to keep the adrenalin flowing and to enhance the fun side of this popular sport.

To get to the starting gate, nothing could be simpler ; from the cablecar station at the centre of the village it’s but a few minutes to the pistes. Time is precious so the cablecar trip allows riders to concentrate all their efforts on stringing together a series of downhill runs at breakneck speed.
