Pila with Monte Emilius


Panoramic view from the summit area of Punta del Drinc in E direction over the skiing area of Pila. Pila has developed in the second half of the 20th Century in an area formerly characterized by alpine pastures with some small settlements. It is connected to Aosta not only by a road, but also by a cable car. Even though it is mainly used as a ski resort in winter, Pila has also established itself as a prominent mountain biking area in summer. The highest of the summits in the central background is Monte Emilius (3559 m). Aosta and the Grand Combin (4314 m) can be seen in the left background of the image, whereas the Cogne Valley appears in the right background.
