Surrounded by the most beautiful alpine landscapes and a breathtaking setting, cyclists and mountain bike enthusiasts can pursue their hobby. Over hill and dale, over challenging trails and rough terrain: Mountain biking at the skiport resorts makes everyone want to hop in the saddle.

The amazing advantage of the skisport resorts? The cable cars take you up into lofty heights – and you can bring your bike right along. Which ticket prices apply for the transport of your bike depends on the resort.
