La Thuile ski holidays take you to an attractive Italian resort close to the border with France. It retains the traditional charm of a mountain village and is largely unspoiled. The views of Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and the Matterhorn are magnificent. La Thuile lies in the Aosta Valley at an altitude of over fourteen hundred metres and with lifts to almost two thousand six hundred metres. At high altitude and with many of the slopes facing east or north, the resort has a good snow record. Should it be necessary, snow cannons cover fifty percent of the runs. La Thuile is linked with the French resort of La Rosiere by a chair lift at the Col de la Traversette. The two resorts form the Espace San Bernado which has one hundred and sixty kilometres of piste with sufficient variety to satisfy all ability levels in both skiing and boarding. The modern system of lifts gives rapid access to the slopes and queues are minimal. La Thuile ski resort offers great conditions and great value.
La Thuile ski holidays.
La Thuile ski holidays are very popular as they cater for all. Newcomers to the sport generally begin on the nursery slopes in the village but quickly move on up the mountain, via the gondola, to Les Suches where they'll find gentle blues. Intermediates have the greatest choice of runs. Many choose the south facing slopes of La Rosiere. There are some testing black runs for the experienced skier, particularly the steep tree-lined runs back down to the village. As always, off-piste skiing provides further challenges but should only be attempted when accompanied by a mountain guide. The wide open pistes are perfect for snowboarders and there is a terrain park in both La Thuile and La Rosiere.
La Thuile's hotels and apartments offer high standards of comfort as well as a warm and friendly service. Restaurants both on and off the mountains serve a good variety of menu. The ever favourite pasta and pizza are a dominant feature on menus. If your budget is tight they make a pleasant and inexpensive meal. Nightlife is fairly low key with a few bars and cafes. Recreational facilities include ice skating, snow-shoeing, tobogganing, snow tubing and dog sledding.
The Thuile ski season lasts from the beginning of December until the first week of April. Many regional airports have direct flights to Turin and Geneva from where the transfer times are two and three hours repectively. You can check on the Cheeky Trip website to see if your own local airport offers a direct service. The summer months are very popular too as visitors come to enjoy the lakes, the pure mountain air and the spectacular landscapes. There are marked trails for hill walkers and mountain bikers.
