About the Resort

La Thuile may have a French-sounding name, but it’s actually an Italian ski resort quietly located in a side valley just off the main Aosta Valley in north-west Italy.  The La Thuile piste map is linked with La Rosière in France where you’ll find cross-border slopes and heli-skiing that will get you

With over 150km of snow-sure slopes, La Thuile has a great variety of pistes that will suit most levels of skiers.  It’s probably not the best location for beginners, as there isn’t an abundance of gentle blues or much for new intermediates.  However more confident intermediates and higher levels will really enjoy the steeper Italian La Thuile pistes.  Advanced skiers will particularly enjoy the challenges of the steep drops through the trees to be found on piste 3 – F Berthod and piste 5 – Muret.

When you’re looking at La Thuile ski accommodation, you’ll find that there are a lot of apartment buildings to choose from.  You’ll find most of the La Thuile hotels will suit the lower budget end

When it comes to the La Thuile weather, the best month for a visit will be January, when you can expect around 42mm of snow per week

La Thuile is certainly a popular choice if you’re looking for more of a laid back, quieter resort.  You can look forward to much more affordable prices than other more famous resorts.  It’s a pretty place with an excellent ski area – particularly benefiting from the French-linked slopes

The La Thuile resort has retained its roots as an ex-mining community which certainly adds to its rustic character.  So if you’re looking for a resort that offers something different – La Thuile is the one for you.  With its membership of the Aosta Valley Resorts Association, you’ll also be able to use your La Thuile lift pass for the Courmayeur slopes too.

La Thuile is a decent-sized ski resort with excellent beginner and easy intermediate slopes.  A great benefit of La Thuile is its strikingly crowd-free pistes
