Thanks to its geographical position and natural setting, which characterises it as the Wild Side of Mont Blanc, La Thuile also has the advantage of being just a few minutes from the motorway and therefore easily accessible. All this while maintaining and preserving the characteristics of a mountain place isolated and disconnected from the frenzy of everyday life. Certainly a corner of the Alps that, like few others, is able to transmit the strength and power of the mountains, encouraging a rapid psycho-physical rebalancing.
La Thuile is getting ready to open the winter season, the period dedicated to sports ‘in white’, with an offer able to guarantee not only an active stay, but also a regenerating and energising one.
From 27 November, La Thuile’s peaks will be accessible to snow sports enthusiasts who want to forge a closer alliance with nature, combining physical activity with many opportunities for contemplation and outdoor living to regenerate and restore perfect mental and physical balance. A true beneficial therapy for body and mind. And from 11 December it will also be possible to cross the border and discover the French side of the La Thuile ski area.
If you’re an avid ski lover, you’ll have plenty to do in La Thuile: you’ll be able to ski without borders, without queues and non-stop in the vast Espace San Bernardo international ski area that links La Thuile with La Rosière in Savoie (FR): a real border ski area that is one of the most articulated and adrenaline-filled of the Alpine areas, boasting a longer ski season and an entourage of unspoilt peaks. 152 kilometers of pistes to suit all tastes and levels, reaching the 2,800 metre altitude of Mont Valaisan (the highest in the ski area), which can be reached from both the French and Italian sides via the Belvedere (2,650 metres), where the thrilling 360° view of the peaks will allow you to recharge your batteries.
And here you won’t be able to miss the slope that makes La Thuile unique, the famous 3 Franco Berthod, one of the most difficult in Italy and certainly the steepest (76% gradient where a World Cup race is held).
But La Thuile does not stop here. Don’t forget that this Valle d’Aosta resort offers a range of alternatives to skiing that allow you to experience the mountains with their silence and rhythms, observe extraordinary views, walk in the woods and conquer the peaks step by step. Whether you prefer a more ‘relaxing’ activity or an extreme sport, holidays in La Thuile offer pure energy and strong emotions.
