All-Mountain in Switzerland
This trip has become a serious classic and a must-do for passionate riders longing for the ultimate Alps trip. If you dream of getting off a lift high in the Alps, climbing for an hour to a high pass with spectacular views, having a quick cappuccino, then rolling downhill for, oh, an hour or more on fantastic singletrack, then this is for you. We'll gaze out at Mont Blanc from a little stone hut above Verbier, devour pasta in Italy and ride in the shadow of the Matterhorn in Zermatt. Cloudraker is a serious all-mountain buffet.
