Pila

Overview

The village and Pila ski area

Located in a basin overlooking Aosta, an hour and a half's drive from Milan, is Pila, part of the municipality of Gressan, a well-known all-round ski resort at 1800 metres altitude with 70 kilometres of slopes and 13 lifts.

Favoured in winter by experts and enthusiasts, it is, however, also a popular holiday destination in summer thanks to its numerous walking, trekking and mountain-biking trails. In the winter, you can enjoy downhill skiing and snowboarding in Pila. During the rest of the year, you can enjoy hiking to such places as the hermitage of San Grato or Lake Chamolé, and mountain biking. For those who love two-wheelers, the Sarre-Fénis cycle-pedestrian path in the lower valley is not to be missed. 

For the more daring adrenaline junkies, there is an adventure park, various downhill and freeride routes and the chance to board a hot-air balloon.

Have you ever been up on a cable car? Leaving Aosta, you can reach Pila in less than twenty minutes along a suspended route. If arriving by car, you can safely leave your car in the large free car park near the cable car departure station: you will save yourself about 18 km of mountain road.
Once at the top, surrounded by the pleasant scent of firs and larches, prepare to be left spellbound by the panorama of the highest mountains in the Aosta Valley, from Mont Blanc to Grand Combin, from Monte Cervino to Monte Rosa.
