Carry on southwards and there is a possible diversion to the ski resort of Isola 2000. The road from Isola to the ski resort of Isola 2000 is wide smooth and steep with a lot of wide hairpins, many in pairs, suitable for the busses that go there in the winter. We did it in Summer with no traffic and in the pouring rain - we didn't enjoy it a bit, but in the dry it is sure to be a great blast up the mountain.
Between Isola 2000 and the top of the pass there is a very narrow - single track most of the way - bumpy couple of miles. The Col de Lombarde has recently been fully paved and is narrow at the top which makes it difficult to overtake if there's traffic. Lower down it's twisty and steep in places through trees with vaery many hairpins - given an empty road it is a nice ride. Nice scenery from open moor to thick woodland in a narrow gorge.
