We did the guided outing to the bout du monde on electric fat bike. The equipment was great, the team are great - simple explanations and confidence inspiring with flexibility to go easier or harder on different pets of the ride. We had a great time and will definitely go back to these guys again. Electric bikes make even the steepest hill possible - Even for an unfit man in his 50s!

I have just returned from an excellent 3 day mountain bike trip organised by Mountain Spirit. It can’t be easy to plan a route for a group of people that you have not met, but it was exactly the right level of difficulty and adventure. The 2 refuges that we stayed in overnight were amazing, both in terms of stunning location and great food. The interesting local drinks were a bonus!!

The mountain bikes we used were provided through Mountain Spirit and were of a very high standard.

Thanks to Bertrand for guiding us so professionally, his enthusiasm and passion for the region made all the difference. Thomas, all your help during the booking and planning process was very much appreciated.

Great fun to be had on the Fat E-Bike night ride. The staff (especially Joe) were helpful, and great fun.

The fat bikes were in great condition and instruction was superb. 1.5-2 hours in the forests between Samoëns and Morillon. Fantastic fun for any ability.

Would definitely recommend 👍

We booked with this company having seen their board in the square in Samoens, so really just took a punt on whether it would be any good.
When booking ,we were greeted in the shop by Ben who took our details to find our level, and exactly what we wanted to do. We booked on to a half day beginners course in Les Gets which included bikes, safety gear, transfer to Les Gets, lift passes and instruction for 89 Euro.
The whole experience was excellent. My son and I were the only English in a group of eight, so the instructions were given by Ben in French first then English, but also first in English, then French which felt really inclusive for us. The tuition was just right to get us started and we were soon making our first descent, stopping occasionally for new tips on technique etc. It was all pitched at just the right level for our group, so we all made good progress over the three descents of the mountain we made.
I would definitely recommend Mountain Spirit Samoens

We hired a bike and had lessons from Mountain Spirit.
Couldn't fault them in any way, helpful, friendly and informative. The perfect combination! Would highly recommend them if you're in the area, excellent local mountain knowledge.
We'll be back for skis in the winter!

We decided to take a break from skiing and rode the e fat bikes with Bertrand, the co-owner of Mountain Spirit. We had such a super time riding to Morillon and towards Sixt that we booked an other trip, this time to Sixt Fer a Cheval. The bikes are brilliant (easy to manage and the motors make riding the hills a breeze) and so are the guys at Mountain Spirit. It's a wonderful way to explore the beauty of Samoens and surrounding villages, thank you Tomas and Bertrand!
