 The EWS is like rally racing, going to all these kickazz destinations and UCI DH is like trophy truck circuit racing

 I'm going to La Thuile in a couple of weeks. Anyone know if these trails will be open and way-marked?

 Some sections will be others wont. But if you use trailforks app im sure you could find them because they are not far from the lift

 When we went last year we had a guide that took us to the Superenduro tracks that had been there a few weeks before, you may need to do something similar.

 These EWS trails are slightly different to the actual tracks there. There's plenty there and they're long.

 Last time I went just after the EWS they were still taped although the starts weren’t easy to spot. They mix in with the regular trails which are very well marked.
