Col des Posettes

Col des Posettes: a wild unpaved road to the summit

Col des Posettes is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.997m (6,551ft) above the sea level, located in the Haute-Savoie département in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.

The road to the pass is a gravel service road behind the ski lift. Pretty steep and narrow. It’s totally impassable in winters. From Posettes, there is a rideable path up to Col de Balme (2204 metres) that straddles the Swiss / French border. The Col de Balme marks the Franco-Swiss border. It is easily recognisable by the stone alpine restaurant in the centre of the col.
