White Room Mountai Biking guides on a big day out


The White Room was created in 2008 by Steven & Iona McDonald. We started out as a year-round chalet business running Mountain Bike holidays in the summer and ski/snowboard holidays in the winter. Since then, our mountain bike business has grown and grown to the point where we have now taken a step away from running winter holidays and we only run mountain bike holidays. Both of us are passionate mountain bikers and fully French-recognised bike guides. We live in the Tarentaise valley all year round and ride bikes from when the snow first melts in Spring right up until it starts falling again at the start of the winter. We've made it our obsession over the years to ride every hint of a trail in and around the valley, meaning we now have a breadth and depth of trail knowledge which is second to none. We've taken the customer service and top-class catering experience from 10 years of running high-end ski holidays and blended it with our passion for mountain biking and over 15 years experience of riding and guiding on the local trails to create what we think are some of the best mountain bike holidays in the world.

Guiding team


Our guiding team is one of the most experienced you'll find anywhere. All of us hold a French Carte Professionelle and we all have at least 10 years experience of riding and guiding the local trails. We all hold either a combination of the British Mountain Bike Leader and International Mountain Leader qualifications or the French BPJEPS Mountain Bike Instructor qualification. We all work as outdoor leaders all year round, with Stevo, Pat & Rab being local snowboard/ski instructors in the winter and Iona working as a snowshoe leader. Check out White Room Snowboarding for Stevo's winter snowboard guiding, coaching and backcountry camps.
