Meet the group at our starting point in Verbier. Later in the afternoon, we will check all the gear, discuss the weekly plan and do some last minute food shopping.
We will start our week by using the local cable cars to avoid some meters in altitude. On beautiful trails, we will head east towards a high altitude mountain hut where we will be stayin overnight. To get there we will be crossing a peak as high as 2500 meters.

This morning you are in for a special treat: over 1000 meters of descent into the valley. Having reached the lowest point, we will be taking a shuttle up to 1900 meters. From here it is pedalling alongside a beautiful lake before the long hike starts. You will be rewarded with breathtaking views on glacers as well as some of the highest peaks in the alps. Tonight we will be staying at hotel with all amenities. Highest point will be a mountain pass at almost 3000 meters.

On Wednesday we will start the day with a cable car and some casual pedalling. Then we have a 600 meter climb in front of us that will most likely be done by pushing & carrying. The pass at 2800 meters is the start of a long downhill that starts of rocky and heads into needle forests. Luckily there is one lonely hotel at the end of a secluded valley where we will be staying overnight.
Uphill: 700 Meters, Length: 25 km
After a great breakfast at the hotel, we will leave the beautiful valley and head for the next pass. The first couple of 100 meters in altitude we can use our pedals whereas some remaining ones will have to be done by pushing and/or carrying. Then you are up for the longest descent of the week. From 2800 down to 600 meters all in one go. Our overnight location, a mountain hotel on 1900 meters, we will be reaching with a small cable car.
