Over the Jura Mountains via Col du Sac

Eric and I took mountain bikes and decided to get muddy and search for the secret road over the Jura mountains and the savage Col du Sac down to the tiny Menthières ski station on the other side.

Col du Sac is Open?

At the turn, I told Eric it would be impossible to reach and totally covered in snow.

He gave me a half-smile. I knew we were going up.

Golet du Pey and Vuache

There is a Grande Randonnée (GR) hiking route along the top of La Vuache and someone had recently asked me if it was do-able by bike.

Today – with Eric and Jason – the idea was to find out.

Col du Sac

At about 1,250 meters (4200 feet) the paved road ended and I ran into snow. I wasn’t sure where the actual Col was and I hate to climb a Col and not find the sign at the top

So I decided to continue climbing the gravel path through the snow.

Col de Cuvery

I knew the top was just about at the current snow line, so wearing four layers and with a balaclava for the descent I set off.
