A long while since I last came this way but I remembered a relatively easy downhill with a fairly easy climb. The downhill is excellent, a few steps and mild technical sections but good downhillers could take this really fast. The only downside, it is a bit too short. We had a few errors at the start of the climb in the housing estate.


Dusty,  a tree blocking the path at the entrance to the ski piste. Temperatures were mild and no wind, compared to the valley. Very pleasant for cycling.
