We have 3-4 days in 2nd week of May in Switzerland where we were hoping to hit some cross country tracks and need some advice on which tracks are open at this time of year. We haven't booked any accommodation until we work out the best riding.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Lexi

Hi Lexi,

I'm not familiar with cross-country mountain biking in Switzerland unfortunately.

Typically speaking, the lower the altitude the better chances of the trails being open in mid-May. Say 1500 meters and below.

Here are a few links to help you find trails in Switzerland to get you started:

There is plenty of mountain biking at ski resorts like Zermatt - long trails once you take a gondola up the mountain (doesn't have to be all downhill) but the altitude would probably mean most/all are closed still in mid-May.

Hi Lexi

When we were staying in St. Moritz last summer we did a trip up Brambüesch from Chur and there were a lot of cycling trails up there. I don't know anything about when they are open as we were there in July but it might be worth checking out.
