The Real Mountain Experience

About The Experience

Get ready to enjoy a sky full of stars from one of the best Rifugio. One night up in the mountains to soak in the best rides as soon as the sun rises.

Program

This is a suggested itinerary. We'll adapt it to your group, the season and the weather as required.

2 Day tour in the high mountains. There are multiple options available and we’ll choose the best tour for you, based on our knowledge of the trails and rifugi, your abilities, and the season.

All tours start in Aosta on the first morning for a briefing over coffee, before transferring to the starting point in our shuttle. From there you’ll have two days of riding, staying mostly at high altitude.

At the end of the first day, you’ll arrive at the rifugio for a drink as the sun sets before a hot shower and dinner refuels you for the next day. Waking up in the mountains as the sun rises again on a new day’s riding is an incredible experience! You’ll need to carry everything with you and can expect a good amount of pedaling uphill as well as awesome descents on the way back down!

Technical & Fitness levels

We ask all riders to review the “Technical and Fitness Rating System” to ensure you are confident riding on the level required for the particular rides you are interested in joining!

Please read the following guidelines carefully to ensure the ride of interest matches your technical level and fitness prior to booking your ride.

TECHNICAL RATINGS

Novice
You can ride a bike and are happy riding on dirt roads with gentle climbs and descents.

Intermediate
You enjoy riding easy single track that isn’t narrow or technical and you know the basics of body position and how to brake and corner safely. You enjoy riding in the mountains as long as it’s not too exposed or steep. You’d maybe like to learn more to enable you to tackle more technical or narrower trails with roots and rocks.

Intermediate +
You are comfortable riding on narrow single track with some rocks and roots and are able to proactively ride most trails. If the corners are too tight or the trail is too technical you are happy to walk a few meters, but you’d like to work on your skills to help you ride them.

Advanced
You are comfortable riding almost any trail including steep rock sections, tight switch backs, off camber sections, roots, and narrow exposed single track in high mountain terrain. You’ve ridden in the mountains and are not intimidated by sustained, steep descents that include all of these features. You know when it’s better to get off the bike, but don’t have to often.

Pro Bro
You are a professional or sponsored mountain biker, and/or you compete regularly in national or international competitions. You can ride all terrain pro-actively and safely, in any mountain environment or weather conditions.

FITNESS RATINGS

1
You are happy riding for a few hours and are capable of climbing up to 500 vertical meters over the course of a day.

2
You are happy riding for a several hours and are capable of climbing between 500-800 vertical meters over the course of a day. You could ride like this for 2-3 consecutive days.

3
You are capable of riding for multiple days in a row at a moderate pace for several hours each day. You can handle moderately steep climbs of up to around 1000 vertical meters in a day including some pushing or carrying your bike if required. You have ridden at altitude (2000 slm+) previously, and understand the effect it has on you.

4
You are capable of riding for multiple days for an average of 4-6 hours of pedal time each day. You can climb 1000-1500 vertical meters each day including pushing or carrying your bike over long sections (30-60mins) if required. You have ridden at altitudes of over 2000 slm+ previously and are happy doing so, although you may have to go slower and take more breaks.

5
You are capable of riding for multiple days in a row for an average of 6-8 hours each day. You can handle steep, sustained climbs of over 1,500m each day including pushing or carrying your bike over long sections (60mins+) if required. Altitude is no problem to you and you are used to riding at over 2500 slm+.
