Ski La Thuile for stunning scenery of Mont Blanc (Europe's highest peak) from the Italian side. Along with a nice relaxed Italian winter sport atmosphere, skiing & snowboarding here is excellent.
Ski La Thuile and you're located between Mont Blanc and the Mount Rutor Glacier. This ski resort shares the slopes of La Rosiere for a total of 150kms of piste for skiing and snowboarding. The scenery is spectacular, with views of the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Mont Blanc, and the atmosphere relaxed. Transport is via Turin Airport or Geneva.
On the slopes
Ski La Thuile and you get something for everyone. With 80 slopes and 150 kms of runs, you'll be spoiled for choice. Because La Thuile is relatively unknown outside of Italy, you'll find it delightfully uncrowded. With 27 beginner/easy intermediate runs this is a good place to learn, and there's also plenty of options for intermediates. In addition to 13 expert runs, there are also some fantastic off-piste challenges, and heli-skiing is available for the adventurous.
If you ski La Thuile you are also in the ski region of Aosta Valley .
Off the slopes
Don't let the size of the ski resort fool you - there are some great places to eat, ranging from cheap pizza and pasta through to full on 3-course meals. Try La Lune, Lo Creton and La Grotta for pasta and pizzas, La Fordze for something more upmarket. Lively après-ski choices include La Bricole pub or the Cage pub. This is also a good resort for families - there's a cinema, swimming pool, fitness centre, table tennis and cross-country skiing.
