La Thuile in Italy Resort Guide

La Thuile lies high in western alps on the French-Italian border and is linked with the French area of La Rosiere. The ski area offers great views to Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and to the Matterhorn. It has an enviable snow record and has predominantly east facing slopes.

The most recent apartment buildings, such as the giant Planibel, imbue the appearance of a modern purpose built French resort, but thankfully the whole village retains an Italian ambience and friendliness. The old village, on the other side of the river, is where there is still evidence of the village's roots as a traditional mining town for coal and silver. Some of the older buildings are now being renovated and re-built, and new building in this area is sympathetic in style. The Planibel is a massive integrated facility which includes shops, apartments, bars, a hotel and a sports complex with a good, big, swimming pool. It is very much the purpose built, practical complex which it sets out to be.

La Thuile's slopes and lifts are nearly always quiet and although much of the terrain is very much intermediate stuff, this means that even peak season you can be guaranteed good snow and the opportunity to rack up the miles.   As you can also ski into France on the lift pass, this offers a good variety of skiing and a change of scene.

 


Accomodation & Après Ski

We at Born 2 Ski, have enjoyed La Thuile both for the skiing and the excellent local restaurants and ambience - for example, the made-to-order pizzas in the various family-run trattorias, are fantastic value and delicious, but there are also very good, more formal restaurants offering wonderful food and service, at much lower prices than you may be used to in France.   Night life is low-key and informal, as in many Italian resorts, with a few good and lively bars for apres beers and snacks, music, and with some showing major sports events.
