Cam, you could always end up with a not-that-expensive option....I just have to drive a car for like 7 hours. Gas is still cheaper than a flight - even in Europe.

We went on the Costa Rica DH trip this winter.... Totally amazing! Some of the most unreal, technical and challenging riding I've ever done. Amazing views, great guides, and even better weather.
Big Mountain knows how it's done, in my opinion, and we're looking at going on this Alps trip in the next few years.

Do you have to bring your own bike on these trips?

Hey Hard Tack,
You don't have to bring your own bike to Switzerland, but some of our trips you do like Costa Rica and Peru. Not all the countries that we ride have good rentals available.
Cheers!

The best vacations of my life have been based around the Big Mtn trips. CR plus a beach extension is pretty awesome.Swiss trip is pretty stellar too. I think we logged a 120k of vert while we were there.

Next year, the wife and I are hoping to do Italy... come on Big mtn
