Mont Tendre is the highest point in the Swiss Jura mountains at 1,679 metres.

It’s another of those great, steep, deserted Jura roads climbing through the woods – with Alps views at the top.

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.

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.

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.

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.
