The Pleney bubble car takes you and your mountain bike to the top of the mountain where you have the option to ride down into Les Gets or you can drop back into Morzine. The trail heading into Morzine is pretty challenging to say the least. It features a nice collection of tight tree runs that can provide a refreshing break from the scorching summer sun that can send temperatures up into the 30′s. A lot of water and food fuel is needed if you are to get through a whole day on the Pleney!
