Newest Review: ... for lunch, what an adventure! I love the bars and restaurants on the slopes, it's a great resort to ski to a couple of different places and stop for a beer or hot chocolate, and different choices for lunch. The Roxy bar is a good choice, on the way back from La Rosiere when you hit La Thuile, but you can ski down to it from La Thuile, but unsure of the run number, but you can do either a red ... more

La Thuile is great for skiing (no snowboarding). I'd suggest to ski on French slopes during the morning hours, and move to Italian slopes in the afternoon, when it is warmer.I'd suggest to avoid Roxi Bar for lunch. It is way too expensive; 5 euros for a slice of pie or 6 (six!) for a watery beer is definitely not acceptable, not only in La Thuile. You can get the same items for at least 1 euro less. Nonetheless it's very crowded and you have to wait on average 15 minutes to get your order.

I've been to La Thuile three times, and it is a lovely resort. The skiing is mostly very gentle and wide quiet slopes, great for beginners and intermediates, advanced skiers may get a little bored. I know the advanced skiers in our party do, but you can ski over to La Rosiere for an extended ski area. The ski over to La Rosiere is good, but not particularly great for snowboarders as a lot of flatter bits to get through. On the way back there is a very long poma, about 2km long I think. So if any of your party are not that great on pomas it is good to know beforehand. The way over to La Rosiere is ok for advanced beginners, on the way back there is ... Read the complete review

La Thuile is a popular skiing area located in the Aosta Valley (Valle d'Aosta). It is not very far from Aosta (the capital of Valle d'Aosta), Aosta is now recheable in less than an hour. It has one main hotel (Planibel Hotel & Residences) that has all the modern facilities one could expect: gym, swimming pool, ski hire, many shops (including a supermarket), game room etc. It is owned by ATA Hotels (www.atahotels.it) but the hotel is now operated by Tivigest (www.tivigest.com) but the residence is still operated by ATA Hotels. The nice thing is the fact that this hotel is right in front of the pistes, so you can wake up in the morning and take a short ... Read the complete review

I wondered if I should let you in on the secret of La Thuile. Even many adventurous skiers have never heard of it, and that's its beauty. It still hasn't yet been over-run by the hordes so you get the distinct feeling you have it all to yourself. La Thuile is right at the top of the Aosta Valley and just across the Italian/French border from it's neighbour, La Rosiere. It's easy to ski across and most visitors do. It makes a very good day out and adds even greater variety to the pistes of La Thuile. The small town of La Thuile sits at the bottom of a steep climb up to the main pistes. The slopes next to the upper town are for ... Read the complete review
