Pila Trail Info
For dedicated DH riders, a day trip to Pila is definitely worth the effort. Around 1h30mins drive away, well across the Italian border, Pila hosts a purpose built bike stadium, with a dedicated chairlift. The area includes a World Cup DH track and several other "freeride" trails, all tight singletrack with a distinct DH flavour. The jewel in the crown though is the mammoth descent from Pila (1850m) all the way down to the town of Aosta (400m). A long gondola ride links the town and resort, meaning you can lap the trail. This huge descent combines steep, dusty singletrack with drops and jumps to form an awesome trail well worthy of its inclusion in MBR's "10 trails to ride before you die" feature.
