Courtavey Bike

This 12 km excursion between the resort and upper pastures, of medium difficulty, is a last test before attacking the more difficult routes on offer in Crans-Montana. The route offers a good compromise between all terrains: tarmac, beaten earth and paths.
The itinerary is a loop. It starts at Lake Moubra and takes you up to the resort of Crans-Montana. After passing by Lake Grenon, you attack the uphill to the pastures, towards Signal via Arnouvaz, where you can ski in winter. From this point, it is possible to detour to the Corbyre alpine pasture where you can taste different local cheeses.

After pedalling to Courtavey and crossing the mayen area, you go back down via Plumachit and Barzettes back to the departure point, and why not refresh yourself and relax at the Lake Moubra beach which lends itself to swimming. Here you’ll find two restaurants with very welcoming terraces.

A large part of the route is on surfaced roads and beaten earth tracks. They cross the resort, forest areas and pastures. Stops can be made in several places en route, for example at the Arnouvaz pizzeria.

Hints

Tours with an e-mountain bike
The tourism organisations had these routes registered specifically as e-mountain bike routes. Technically, they are not too difficult, no passages where the bike has to be carried, short sections where it needs to be pushed, and doable with one battery charge (max. 1000 -1200 m altitude difference).
