Ski Lifts in Pila

Pila’s modern lift system of 14 ski lifts includes a cable car, gondola and eight chairlifts, serving a 70km network of 29 groomed runs with an up-hill capacity of 19,700 people per hour.

Pila Ski Lifts

The gondola from Aosta arrives in Pila’s lower ski area, at an altitude of 1,800m.  There are moving carpet lifts in this central zone and a short stretch of blue piste leads skiers from the gondola station to the base of the long Chamole chairlift. From the top of the Chamole chairlift (2,309m), a choice of lovely, quiet red and blue runs lead either back to the starting point or to the pivotal area close to the base of the  La Nouva and Leisse chairlifts, and the Gorraz – G. Grimod cable car, just above Pila 2000.

The Leisse chairlift and Gorraz G. Grimod cable car transport skiers into the heart of the ski domain with its dense network of scenic red pistes.  The 4-man Grimod chair lift serves the extensive snowpark and this sheltered snowy bowl is also ideal terrain for beginners to practice on. Higher up the resort, the two Couis chairlifts lead to Pila’s steepest, highest altitude slopes, the freeride zone and some stunning viewpoints.

The lifts in the main ski area are operational from early December to mid-April. Most of the lift infrastructure and access to all of the main runs is by chairlift or cable car. The ski area and lifts are often quiet during the week and lift queues are rarely a problem even at busiest times including weekends when the Italian skiers arrive.

Pila Ski Lift Passes

Pila’s lift pass is valid for the Aosta gondola and all ski lifts in the Pila ski area.  A 6-day Pila lift pass can also be used for one or two days of skiing in neighbouring Aosta Valley resorts such as Courmayeur, Monterosa, la Thuile and Cervinia, which can be accessed by public transport from the town of Aosta. Skiers who want to spend more than two days in the neighbouring resorts can buy a Valle d’Aosta pass that lets you ski in all of them without any restrictions.

Reduced rates are available for low season, for the over 65’s and under 14’s. Children up to 8 years of age qualify for a free lift pass when an accompanying adult buys an adult lift pass for the same duration.  Proof of age is required for reduced rates and free passes.

Lift passes can be purchased at the top and bottom of the Aosta gondola that connects Pila to the historic city of Aosta. Non-skiers are also able to buy tickets for the Gorraz – G. Grimod cable car and for the Chamole and Liason chairlifts.
