Haute Tension is a black trail located in the top part of Châtel bike park, which can be divided into two parts: before the 4x4 track and after.

The first part of the trail starts with a series of berms before you enter into some steep, loose rock lines, littered with big boulders. It's important to manage your speed well here and find a good line to keep the flow. The second part of the trail is mostly berms, offering good flow and rhythm. Only at the very end of the trail do things start turning steep and loose again.

"A video is worth 1.8 million words", so watch our trail video!


High Tension starts at the top of the Châtel bike park. You have to take the two chairlifts to get there, Pierre-Longue and Rochassons. Once at the top, the beginning of the trail is on your right as you get off the lift. You just have to go a few meters down Panoramic, a green trail, to find the departure which dives off to the right.

There is no details available on how to access Haute Tension.
