.......albeit on skis. After years driving around the Alps from resort to resort I now understand why I have never driven across it!!! Great skiing though, and wonderful views.

“Magnificent Alpine Vista”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is an amazing spot to stand particularly if on top of one of the La Thuile ski trails. On a clear day Monte Bianco and the alpine ridge can be seen for ever with the clearly distinct peak of the Matterhorn in the distance. I have to admit though that I've only ever been there when it's covered in snow but some of the old frontier fort ruins can evoke glimpses of another time. The only spoiler for that perfect picture post card scene is the fairly significant hydro electric line and towers that bring nuclear generated electricity into Italy. They cut right across the pass.
