Avoriaz via Morzine

The wide road to Avoriaz is very steep, but the views are wonderful the whole way. This climb has featured in the Tour de France on seven occasions.

Although this is the easier side of the pass, the gradient is still very steep. The lake after the Col de Ranfolly provides a beautiful climax to the climb.
