Downhill and freeride

In summer the télécabine from Luchon to Superbagneres is open to mountain bikers.

There are several descents for all levels from the “familial” on large, gentle forest tracks to the “Kbour”, long technical singletrack on steep terrain.

However with 1200m of steep forest, Superbagneres is above all else a freeriders paradise.
