The Pas de Morgins, a mountain pass linking Switzerland and France, is one Alpine pass not to be missed. As you leave the town of Monthey, you ride your first hairpins before joining up with the main road for the Val d’Illiez. The first leg of the climb brings you through the village of Troistorrents. Soon thereafter you tackle your next set of hairpins which seem to bring you face-to-face with the Dents du Midi. But before you can shift gears on the high mountain plateau at Morgins, you have about two kilometres of steep grades to tackle. After riding through the mountain resort of Morgins, you ride past the Swiss border post before you reach the summit of the pass next to a small pastoral lake.
