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.

Drop Everything and Watch Semenuk’s Latest Edit

Hold your breath, in usual Semenuk fashion, the mountain biking deity has yet released another perfectly clean edit. He and his pal Rupert Walker of Revel Co. continue to craft cinematic masterpieces that will leave you in awe. I’d suggest exhaling at 1:30, when he throws a decade to double barspin. Sure, Semenuk might have stepped away from the slopestyle competition scene, but let that be no indication that he’ll stop pushing the sport.  RELATED: Top three runs from Red Bull Rampage

Fact: it’s possible to find singletrack to ride all year long in the Northeast, it just requires a little bit of traveling and a keen eye for conditions.
