The Col du Pillon 1,546 m. is located between the ski towns of Les Diablerets and Gstaad. Not only do you change resorts and cantons at the top of this Col, you also change languages from French to German. Also on the Col there is a cable car to Glacier 3000 on top of the Diablerets massif and allows views of the plateau of Tsanfleurongletschers as skiing from October to May. This in one of the main thoroughfares through the central alps in Switzerland so it can get busy at times. But, this is really too much of an issue as it is a fairly wide road, and there are plenty casino online of opportunities to overtake. This route can be ridden casino spiele in either direction, but for this review, we are starting in Les Diablerets. Leaving town, run up the valley with the Diablerets massif on your right, over 1000 meters of vertical rock face. Once you are out of the village, the road opens up a bit with a nice flow of corners up to the summit. On the summit, you will find the lower cable car station and a restaurant, which is usually filed with bikers on good days. The north side provides a wide variety of riding. Starting out with some long straits and weeping bends, giving way a tightening road as you proceed down the valley, then opening up again running down pristine alpine meadows al the way to Gstaad. This little town is a playground of the high rollers and a favourite retirement place for those with too much money. We would rate this a easy route.
