La Thuile Overview

Overview

La Thuile, together with La Rosière in France, is part of the international ski resort known as Espace San Bernardo: a single skipass gains access to 160 km of slopes, 38 ski lifts, cross-country trails, and helisking on the Rutor and Miravidi glaciers. Thanks to the resort's altitude (which varies from 1441 to 2700 m) and a particularly favorable climate, ski lovers can enjoy the slopes from November to April. Over 400 snow canons guarantee favorable conditions all season long. But it doesn't stop here. Summer is a perfect time to discover La Thuile's enchanting lakes, admire stupendous panoramas of Europe's highest peaks, mountain bike, hike on numerous marked trails or drive the Colle del Piccolo San Bernardo, a road with over a thousand years of history. The road is part of both the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France, and leads to the Chanousia Botanical Gardens and the prehistoric "Cromlech". Along with La Salle, Morgex, Pré Saint Didier and Courmayeur, La Thuile is part of the Vallis Digna, the last part of Valle d'Aosta before crossing Colle del Piccolo San Bernardo pass into France. Today La Thuile is a famous and well-equipped tourist center, but it's maintained the charm and features of an ancient mountain village.
