Did this on 5 June 2013. Started from the old campsite a couple of kms northeast of Flumet. Campsite is now closed for good but there is good parking (I stayed overnight in my van). Also camper van parking at the col. Nice ride. A few restaurants open along the way. The southern side had none until Beaufort. Some taps / sources along the way for water. Road had lots of holes.
The col des Saisies from Flumet starts easily with around 10 tied turns just above the village, often used in Tour de France. Then you go through forests with percentage between 5 and 8% 1 km along. Still in Forest but almost flat til Notre dame de Bellecombe, bottom of the resort. ITs getting harder after with 4 km at 7-8% to reach other part of the resort. Relax on the road down 1 km and starts again with 9%, and its going down again. The last part until less saisies is harder,4km at 8%. Very irregular path, which makes it easy. Enjoy the view on Mt blanc from les saisies.
