Platta de Grevon
Platta de Grevon is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.715m (8,907ft) above the sea level, located in the Valle d’Aosta region, in northwestern Italy. It’s one of the highest roads of Europe.
The road to the summit is rocky and gravel. It’s a chairlift access trail of the Pila ski resort. The slope is very steep, consists of loose stones and becomes even steeper and rocky in the upper part. This trail can be done only a very narrow time-frame in the summer (end of August). The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. It’s one of the highest roads of the country. The road to the summit is a ski-station service road pretty steep, with some sections up to 30%.
