Are you ready for the 2024 edition of the iXS European Downhill Cup?

DID YOU KNOW?

Les 2 Alpes has already hosted the European Cup between 2014 and 2016.
The course was already fast and challenging back then, demanding everything from the big names present, such as Gee Atherton and Myriam Nicole.

IT'S ALL GOING TO COME DOWN TO THIS LEGENDARY TRACK

THE FURY

Characteristics of the Elite piste

The Fury trail is the essential DH trail in Les 2 Alpes! It’s very complete, with an aerial section at the top of the course, featuring doubles, drops and hips, as well as slopes to pick up speed. Further down in the forest, there’s a series of technical turns. There’s everything you need to push your limits. And that’s why the Fury has hosted top international competitions like Crankworx. Some sections have been improved for the iXS European DH Cup.
