Road bike - Villars - Col de la Croix

The starting point is at the Villars sports centre.

It all begins with a kicker: A steep climb followed by a gentler gradient as you leave the village behind and reach green pastures. Then comes a flat section, allowing you to catch your breath.

After that, you enter the second half of the segment, a steady 4-kilometre ascent at between 7 and 9%. From the top of the hill, you can enjoy the views of the pristine Col de la Croix Alpine meadows and their herd, where tasty L’Etivaz cheese is produced every summer. Finally, you reach the summit at an elevation of 1,778 metres.
