About Us

What makes trailAddiction special is, quite simply, a deep-rooted passion for mountain biking. By sharing this passion with all our guests, many find a whole new dimension to the sport they already love so much. A large majority of our guests return to stay with us in following years, and of course, we are always delighted to see them again.

Unlike some other alpine operators, we are not a winter ski chalet looking to expand into the summer market. Neither are we a general alpine summer tour operator. In fact, we don’t operate in the winter at all, and we have no affiliation to any winter activities. Nor do we organise other sporting activities in the summer. In this way, our focus is 100% mountain biking. In the off-season, we are busy trail-finding and preparing for the following summer.  (Currently trailAddiction founder Ali spends his time offering guided backcountry adventures in New Zealand, at least until the snow melts again in the Alps, Dorian runs a guiding operation on the Volcanic French Colony Island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean, and Daniel Organises guided trips in Czech Republic and Spain.

trailAddiction is the team behind the revolutionary Trans-Savoie Big Alpine Enduro (still the only multi-day Enduro event in the world to combine Ski-lift uplifts and a multi-day touring itinerary).   Enduro2 – the original pairs-format social enduro was also a trailAddiction spin-off and is rapidly gaining popularity in the Enduro world with events in 3 countries and across 2 hemispheres.

In summary, you won’t find a group more dedicated to the cause than we are. We are confident the riding we offer really is top-class and truly unique in the world of mountain biking holidays.

From humble beginnings in 2002, trailAddiciton grew to its peak in 2016 with a team of over 25 dedicated, very experienced, enthusiastic staff who love mountain biking and the alpine environment as much as you do!   However a change in outlook by the owners has led to a rapid downsizing of operations…basically Ali wanted more time out guiding with his customers, and less time behind a laptop and managing the operation.  We are now small enough (again) to know each customer by name, yet are well-established enough to provide exceptional quality and reliability of service with a large range of ability-streamed groups for you to choose to ride in, all at outstanding value-for money.

In case you are worried, each of our guides is French-Qualified and Certified – and we are a French registered company (in other words, fully Brexit-proofed!).

We look forward to sharing with you a magnificent mountain biking adventure, very soon.
