Champéry Still Rocks!
15 January 2014
Champéry is a Swiss resort well known in the MTB scene because it owns one of the steepest tracks which became famous with Danny Hart's winning run during 2011 World championships. What people know less is that you can find a few more trails as fun as that one. I spent a few days up there filming with Julien Fournier, one of the locals, and my mate Vincent Tupin in unexpectedly dry terrain for the season in these mountains. This year, winter is starting pretty badly with little precipitation and warm temperatures under the sun. We had such a contrast between the sunny areas and the shadows. On one side of the mountain you can ride in the dust with your bike while you can ski at the same elevation on the other.
