Hello there.

I'd like to visit some of the european bike parks and need some recomendations, please.
First of all - lifts. I don't want to uphill by pedalling.
Second and most important - rocky and rooty trails. Better be in the forrest area but not so necessary. I don't like flat flowy "a-line"-kinda trails.
After watching lot of videos on youtube, one was very interesting cause as I see there are at least few trails that I like - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnpB8KVfvYA

Maybe there are more bike parks with trails like that?
Well, yeah, each park has that-kinda trail but - where is the biggest amount of such trails in one park?

Thank you

My guess is Switzerland.

Having ridden Portes Solei region last year I found the Swiss trails much more "natural" than the French trails.

Thanx

dude, forget about sölden, really!

when are you going?

parks I can recommend:
Leogang (45€ a day ticket)
schladming (closed for 2019 season but re-opening in 2020 with new lift and lots of new trails)
neustift (close to innsbruck), only two trails (einseinser and zweizweier) but one of the bests)
innsbruck nordkette single trail (one of the hardest trails in europe - rocky as shit)
livigno (italy) awesome bike park

+1 for La Thuile and although it's vehicle uplifts and not a bike park, Finale has the best riding I've come across in Europe.

by the way, what about Saalbach (+ Leogang cause it's near)?

On of the biggest pros is Joker Card for any appartment..

forget saalbach - hasn't changed anything since 2012, unless you want some boring "flow" trails.
might be nice for a day though. x-line is quite nice, pro-line too, but the rest is rather flow-line for tourists.
