Stories, information and comments from Avoriaz climbers
Story by Gidge from Oxford, United Kingdom, submitted on 06/12/2015
I rode this in July this year at 7am and was a pleasant day, sunny and quiet. However when I rode it in June 2014 it was raining and 15 degrees in morzine, advised by a local shop not to ride due to the weather. But hell in here so I''m doing it, the temp was minus 2 at the top in Avoriaz and the descent was frightening, definitely a must do climb if you are in the area.

I rode up the day before the tour then watched the tour on the Sunday and rode up again on the Monday, This time with some friends also a lot of the pros were riding up the same time however a lot quicker and not puffing like me !! A very pretty ride especially later on near the top not as hard as some but testing enough to make you enjoy the challenge.

I gave it a four mostly because i did it on a mountain bike. There are lots of great downhill tracks in the portes du soleil and my dad and I thought we would have earned the downhill sections more if we had cycled up rather than taking the lift!

Hello, Ive climbed this col with an old bike. The beginning of the climb is nice, a lot of turns into a forest, but the end is breathtaking beautiful but very tiresome, you can see the finish now and it looks like it never comes any closer!! Very tricky indeed. Ive also climbed some others but this was definetely the hardest.
