La Thuile Intermediate Skiing

La Thuile has plenty of varied ski terrain for intermediates with seemingly endless blue and red runs radiating out from the peaks of Chaz Dura and Belvedere, plus sunny South-facing slopes at La Rosière in France. The new Mont Valaisan sector created 5 new high red runs.

The area around the Arnouvaz chairlift offers a quiet, scenic and sheltered skiing with a variety of red runs. A red run of almost 6.5km and a vertical drop of 870m, leads from this area back to the resort of La Thuile.

Intermediate skiers have a choice of red runs back to the village including the resort's longest run.  Piste number 7, an 11km descent from Chaz Dura (2,579m) at the top of the resort, is a road during the summer months and passes through the wide San Bernardo bowl before winding through the forests on the lower slopes, to reach La Thuile.  Piste number 4 is a delightful 6km resort run, which is accessed by turning skiers left towards the bottom of blue piste number 14, and crossing under the Chalet Express chair lift.

La Thuile has a great snow record and conditions are normally excellent with well marked, well groomed pistes throughout the season. Pisted runs are long and varied and the magnificent mountain scenery with views towards Mont Blanc, Monterosa and the Matterhorn make for some exceptional skiing.

The slopes above La Rosiere are also good for intermediates, with a wide choice of red and blue runs on the high altitude slopes above the village. The highest slopes in the whole San Bernardo ski area are now in the Mont Valaisan sector where 5 new red runs were created for the 2018/19 season, with a top height of 2800m.

Intermediate skiers also have the opportunity to ski in neighbouring Courmayeur, easily accessible by local bus.
