La Thuile Boarding & Freestyle

La Thuile is fine for boarders and freestylers with some excellent high altitude powder in both La Thuile and La Rosiere (over the border in France) and a snow park and boarder cross on the south facing slopes above La Rosiere.

The blue pistes at the top of the Les Suches gondola provide ideal terrain for learning to snowboard and in most parts of the ski area the pistes are wide, un-crowded and boarder friendly except for a few flat sections where you may need a skier buddy to give you a ski pole tow.

Great powder can be found on the wooded lower slopes bordered by piste number 4 and in the San Bernardo area of La Thuile.  La Rosiere has a dedicated off piste zone in the Zittieux area as well as a snow park served by the Poletta drag lift, and a boarder cross close to the Le Fort chairlift, on the south facing slopes above La Rosiere.

The majority of the routes are serviced by high speed chairlifts but there are a couple of long drag lifts to negotiate, of which the worst for boarders is the Bellacombe  drag lift, on the route back from La Rosiere, which has some long flat sections.
