Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Overview

This quiet village has crowd-free slopes which are largely above 2000m and are northfacing so hold the snow well. The ski slopes are linked with La Rosiere in France, creating the Espace San Bernardo ski area (150km).

What's the skiing like? The skiing is varied with wooded slopes and open bowls. There are excellent beginner and easy intermediate slopes. The village has a nursery slope with moving carpet and there's another nursery area at Les Suches with blues to progress to. Gentle reds can be found above Les Suches and some long reds through the trees. Expert skiers will find the toughest runs through the trees from Les Suches. Helisking is also big here, particularly the 20km run from the glacier. The Wazimu terrain park is well-suited to families.

Best suited to? Beginners and intermediates

What’s the resort like? La Thuile has developed from an old mining village. It has a pretty centre with chilled-out bars, restaurants and shops. There are regular, free ski buses which link the village to the ski lifts. At the bottom of the lifts is the more modern Planibel complex. Families will find a mini club and village kingergarten.

Downside? The link to France is exposed to bad weather.

Nearest airport(s): Geneva (1.5hrs), Annecy (2hrs), Chambery (2.5hrs).
