Les Saisies, France
Design and Construction
In 2008, we were asked to carry out a programming study to develop an innovative MTB product for the resort of Saisies. This family resort in Beaufortain didn’t have any structured mountain biking offering.
Enduro routes were then created towards the bottom of valleys, as far as Albertville, with the establishment of a seasonal shuttle system. There was a small revolution in the resort when the lifts opened in July and August, and then at the weekends in June and September. Downhill trails from green to black were developed by our teams until 2012: better quality and more accessible than in other resorts in France. They enjoyed immediate success. The range of trails was completed in 2015, with the establishment of a fun cross-country loop near the new activities centre in Signal. A free-access trail measuring 2km which delighted families.
Today, mountain biking is the central sporting activity of the summer in Saisies, which is one of France’s major mountain biking destinations
