Crevacol Ski Resort Italy

Crevacol ski resort, north of Aosta, is a Powderhounds secret stash with a feature unique in the world of skiing - a return 'trail' via the roof of an elevated major roadway.

Crevacol ski resort's base is hemmed in by a bend in the Gran San Bernardo (Grand St Bernard) Pass road to Switzerland & Verbier. Whilst this provides some visually challenging elements, in the end, the road delivers unsurpassed return access from a powder laden backcountry that we are sure could not have been further from the minds of the engineers that build it. Road users - one; skiers - one; visual amenity - nil!!
