La Thuile: Cloud inversion

Old mining village turned smart ski resort, with a fair-sized ski area linked to that of La Rosière. Uncrowded.

La Thuile has a lot going for it. And if you are limited to school holidays and have had enough of the peak-season crowds over the hill in France, it could be just the job - provided a quiet village appeals to you as much as quiet slopes.

La Thuile is based on an old mining village that has been expanded and restored. The attractive centre, with shops, bars and restaurants, is at the entrance, with newer developments fairly widely spread. Over the river, the modern Planibel complex, at the base of the lifts, looks a bit like a French purpose-built resort. The pass includes two days in other Val d'Aosta resorts, and buses run to nearby Courmayeur, making this an easy outing which reporters recommend.

Fair-sized area linked to La Rosière in France

The tough runs are low down, and most low, woodland runs are tough


Strikingly crowd-free slopes

The French link is exposed to bad weather, and the return is slow


Excellent beginner and easy intermediate slopes

Not the place for lively après-ski
