Downhill & MTB-trails
Do you want to ride MTB in hilly, exciting terrain? Then the tip is to head to the old ski slope Vinterberget. Here is a marked path for mountain biking that goes through narrow roads, woods and passes the ski slope both we start and finish. The downhill trail begins at the top of Winterberg and takes you past high-speed forest, built-up jumps, bridges and technical lots. Bring your helmet and the right bike, then just go for a ride!
