Col du Lisey

The road to the pass is unpaved. It starts at the Luz Ardiden ski resort. This is a maintained road where a high clearance 2WD vehicle is able to travel safely at low speeds on long dry straight-of-ways, without losing control due to wash boarding, ruts, or dips.
The drive to the top can be impossible in bad weather. The road is tightly hairpinned and bumped, with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks leading the traveler over the mountains.
