OK, not a road, but really amazing.

Last winter Google street view took an employee with skies and a camera... and went over several ski resorts.

Candanch˙, located at Aragon is the oldest ski resort in Aragon, besides Lane to St. James, Somport mountain pass and one kilometer away from border.

There was a cross-country ski resort very near in the French side and owing of no border controls, ski runs joined being one international ski resort. Almost all the ski runs (all the downhill ski runs are in Spain and the crosscountry ski runs are... international tours!!).

This image shows an international border. As far as I've noticed, photo is taken from France and the stone in the right means the border
https://maps.google.es/?ll=42.786606...,83.89,,0,5.08

I will try to post more "ski runs borders" but you can have a look to this one.

Looks more like a snow groomer than a skier.

Must be fun working at Google's.

Dogana means Customs in Albanian ( Probably Italian loaned word)
Carina is Serbian for Customs... There are also Serbs serving as customs officers too, equal oppurtunities for everyone.
