Yep, Chamonix. Nice mix of DH tracks and natural stuff. Pic 3 is one of my all time top rides (even though I've only done it twice) - gondola then chairlft up, then 5.2 miles of natural singletrack, serving down through big avalance barriers, with about 2400ft of descent. Seriously epic stuff.

Sadly, Chamonix is so popular with hikers that they're a bit scared of pissing them off - as such, most of the natural stuff is closed to bikes for all of July & August. But last week it was all open :D

Most definitely recommended, with the caveat above - last week of June and not all the lifts are open yet, but next week when they are you can't ride all the trails. I've always been to Morzine/Les Gets for my Alps trips but this is so different - much less "rad" and "gnarly" but the riding's probably even more technical. Also, probably saw less than a dozen other serious mountain bikers in the week there.
