Starting in Moutiers - The Cycloclimbing Challenges

DESCRIPTION

Thirteen cols and climbs can be reached from Moûtiers. The roads to the Col de la Madeleine and its variants (Lachat, Logis des Fées) go through magnificent scenery.

Moutiers is also at the foot of the climbs to ski areas such as Val Thorens, Méribel and Courchevel. Cycling is a great way of exploring these resorts nestled in the mountains. The Aiguille de la Vanoise, above Pralognan, is just one of the spectacular sights to see. This climb continues to Les Prioux, a popular trailhead for hikes into the heart of the National Park.
