La Thuile is an unspoilt, friendly resort with a large ski area linked with La Rosiere in France.
Known as Little Siberia among the Italians, the ski area has excellent conditions as well as having amazing views of the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Mont Blanc. With most slopes being east facing, La Thuile has an excellent snow record covering its long, wide runs. The lifts are very efficient and have high capacity meaning that there are pretty much no queues during the week. The resort is generally more suited to intermediate skiers with some of the more challenging runs being the home runs back into the village, although it’s possible to get the cable car back down if you wish.
The mountain has plenty of places to eat and drink, improving greatly over the past few seasons with the opening of some very good, reasonable, Italian restaurants. The village has a relaxing après ski atmosphere with a range of bars that will have free snacks with your drinks. The town isn’t too lively after midnight with just King’s Bar staying open into the early hours
Linked with La Rosière in France and sharing with it the Espace San Bernardo, La Thuile is best for beginners and intermediates. With 30 reds and 32 blues, there are challenges aplenty and you'll find it hard to get bored here. There are two areas, one in Italy, one in France, and a lovely wide bowl with challenging runs and and snowy hillocks in between.
