Default Re: The Alps west of Austria - looking for small roads

Colle San Carlo is the next one. Really nice not much traffic. When you descend towards La Thuile there are some first class vistas over the valley up to Petit Saint Bernard. Meanwhile the drizzle and rain is gone. Time to change some gear.
And then up to Petit Saint Bernard perfect. I carried on without stopping down the west ramp. The weather in France is even better. I want to go into the direction of Val d'Isere but I missed a turnoff. Well that was fine miss - the tornantis down to Seez are first class.

Before you reach Val d'Isere you pass the ski resort Lac de Tignes.
This is a small barrier lake near the main road it's not Lac de Tignes.

Only some minutes later you are in Val d'Isere. The French have changed the style of the architecture from concrete to concrete covered with wood.

First an old one then comes the new generation.

But I'm not here for Val d'Isere I'm here for the Col de L'Iseran
After the first tornantis.

Finally at the top unfortunately a grey-white sky.

Oh, quite cold so down again.

I reached Lanslebourg and called it a day.
