Five varied freeride trails in three levels of difficulty (blue / red / black) are available on Chur's local mountain. There is an altitude difference of 1,000 metres between the starting point at 1,595 metres and the valley station at 595 metres. The trails are peppered with numerous elements such as steep wall curves, jumps, northshores, drops, root and stone passages. The breathtaking view into the Rhine valley makes your pulse beat faster. The arrival at the finish in the Alpine City of Chur is unique: where else can you enjoy a coffee or a ice cream in the cosy ambience of a car-free old town before climbing back onto the cableways and looking forward to the next descent.
The Freeride Trails known since the Mountain bike Swiss Championships 2009 have been steadily expanded since then. Many returning visitors describe the Alpenbikepark as one of the best bike parks in Switzerland due to its varied set-up and well-maintained tracks. The constant expansions have made the park a real insider tip over the last few years.
Due to the relatively low altitude of the bike park (lower distances: 1170 - 595 m, upper distances: 1595 - 1170 m) the Alpenbikepark is also an established attraction in the low season. The pre-season in spring is planned from March onwards and the autumn season often lasts well into November or even December.
The Brambi Flow is a freeride flowtrail in the upper section of the Alpenbikepark Chur. The Brambi Flow Trail is designed that it can be operated even by beginners as a twisty singletrail. Many riparian curves provide a powerful flow and lots of fun, whether biking freeride or cross country.
The Alpenride is a freeride trail in the upper section of the Alpenbikepark Chur. It is a freeride classic with several jumps, drops and a good mix between easier and more difficult sections.
The Rock'n'Roll is a freeride trail in the upper section of the Alpenbikepark Chur. As the name implies: The thing rocks and rolls! Technically demanding and with many jumps advanced freeriders get their money's worth.
The Chur Flow is a freeride trail in the lower section of the Alpenbikepark Chur. The route is moderately steep and very varied. The main line works well for beginners. But also freeride cracks appreciate the route thanks to some crunchy side lines with jumps, drops, step-up & step-down and more elements.
The Vertigo is a freeride trail in the lower section of the Alpenbikepark Chur. With the steep S-curve at the beginning, a jump series in the upper part and a technically challenging trail in the lower part, advanced freeriders will have lots of fun on this track.
