Trails That Drop Jaws Under Switzerland’s Most Iconic Peak - Singletrack Switzerland Zermatt

In the first episode of Singletrack Switzerland, a new Teton Gravity Research mountain bike project produced in partnership with Swiss International Air Lines, Switzerland Tourism, and BMC Switzerland, two American mountain bikers – pro rider Brice Shirbach, and pro skier Carston Oliver – venture to Zermatt, Switzerland, where they experience alpine singletrack on a level and in a landscape ummatched in North America with the help of Epic Europe tours

With gorgeous singletrack winding down thousands of vertical feet of Swiss Alps mountainsides from gondolas, trams, and trains that climb near every peak in the valley, the pair join German BMC Pro Rider Kerstin Kögler to experience all Zermatt has to offer, including Gornergrat train-assisted descents and the giant Zmutt Glacier, which is steadily being whittled away by climate change but yet still holds an unparalleled beauty.

For many of us, the start of the COVID-19 pandemic left us scratching our heads with what to do with our time. Some of us turned to adventure to fill the hours, exploring close to home and getting to know ourselves and our loved ones better than ever before. Others took to re-inventing their lives, and that’s exactly what these three friends from Los Angeles did. Losing jobs meant unlimited free time, and the crowds and concrete jungle of LA no longer felt like the right choice. With the

​Danny Macaskill and Kriss Kyle Join Forces To Defy Physics

Welp. They’ve done it again. Physics and gravity decided to take the day off when Danny MacAskill and Kriss Kyle came by. We’re not sure what they do in their spare time, but we sure know what Danny and Kriss got up to, and it blew our minds.

This New “Bike Cab” Gondola is Genius

Anyone who's been crammed into a gondola with a mountain bike will appreciate Doppelmayr's new Bike Cab design. Let's be frank, loading up your bike at a bike park can be an absolute pain. Every resort is approaching the problem differently, with some ideas better than others. The worst we’ve heard of yet is a bike park replacing one of the gondola windows with a tailgate pad. Sounds sketchy. However, ski lift aficionado Doppelmayr just debuted what could become the standard for bike parks.
