The Verbier E-Bike Festival on the 11th of August teams up with the Summit Foundation hosting a mountain clean up in Verbier as part of their Clean-Up tour. During this day we will aim to pick up any waste which has been left on the local mountain. This ensures the protection of the local flora and fauna reducing the potential impact of the festival on the local environment.

During your ride at the Verbier E-Bike Festival whether you are in a bike park or on open trails you might encounter oder riders. Be mindful and if they are faster let them through when you can, no one wants to disrupt their flow.
On open trails other riders are not the only ones you might come across. People walking, running, families with children and dogs could also be sharing your same path, be careful and slow down to avoid any accidents.
Lastly, once you come into the tree line don't be surprised to have some wild encounters with some animals, this is their home, be mindful and stick to the trails.
