Fatbike in the Alpes Vaudoises

This winter, exchange your skis for a bike to go down to the resort. Feel new sensations on the handlebars of these bikes with wide tyres: the fatbikes.

It's winter, snow sports season! And yet, if you are eager for new experiences, you can get on a fatbike and set off on a snowy track towards the resort of Villars!

Very wide tyres give the fatbike exceptional balance and incomparable grip on all terrains, including snow. As on a standard bike, everyone chooses the pace at which they descend the track. The stability of this type of bike is suitable for all; all you need is a fair share of balance.

The fatbike descent combines adrenaline and the pleasure of winter sports on a wide track dedicated to this activity. The route is marked all along. Choose the best trajectory, negotiate the turns, let go to feel the acceleration and master your skills.

Departing from Bretaye, at your own pace, the track takes you to the Col de la Croix road; the view of the peaks to the south is magnificent. A few pedal strokes are necessary on the snowy road to reach Villars.
