Brilliant week of Tri training at Brown Bear with Tri4thealps with the fantastic Amelia, Joe, Jimmy and Jo. A great week, brilliant coaching setup, a great chalet full of guests, some excellent rides, lake swims and runs. Couldn't ask for a better week, better hosts, better food or better company. Chapeau all around! Nice one guys and thanks. We'll be... More

A short but brilliant trip away giving me an outstanding cycling expeirence. Joe and Amelia were excellent and eager to share their knowledge of the area, the climbs and training. The food was exceptional and just what was in order after a hard day battling the toughest climbs in the area. I would certainly recommend and look to go back... More

Following our first visit last September we couldn't wait to get back for our second triathlon / cycling holiday. Along with about 12 others, we had a brilliant week of cycle and Tri training, accompanied by delicious food and a fab atmosphere. A big thank you to Jo and Jimmy, Joe and Amelia for a great holiday.

Second trip with Tri4thealps and couldn't fault anything. Excellent guidance from Joe and Amelia and great food too. The location of the chalet close to the lake in Montriond is excellent, and only a short walk to Morzine. Great way to meet some like minded athletes too.

Everything went smoothly from prompt pick up at Geneva airport to drop off for flight home. Nothing was too much trouble for hosts Amelia, Joe,... More

Hard to beat this chalet and the set up- and we"ve been chalet holidaying for the last 18 years.. Very spacious, lovely bedrooms and sitting area.
