I have been here a few times, on a good week there are enough runs to keep the best occupied from first light to lift closed. We were over for new year’s this year’s and as a previous poster noted there were a few lifts closed. The week we were there you could cross to France everyday and 4 of... More

Don't believe the brochure when it says "80 pistes". We were there immediately after an 18" dump of snow and you would expect all pistes to be open. They weren't. For example the Argillien Express and Arnouvaz lifts never opened all week so that whole area of red runs was not available. Our guide said it had not been open... More

This was our second ski trip as a family. The ski area was not completely open due to the lack of snow, but what was open was very good. You can also ski into La Rossiere (France), which is probably a slightly better ski area, but the two drag lifts back to la Thuile are long and tedious... The skiing... More

This was our first skiing trip - and we loved it! The resort itself is quite small, but the village is pretty and there is a choice of places to eat. The ski school is fantastic and our instructor was brilliant with us, a small group of novices. He took us on a great selection of runs on our last... More

This was our second visit to La Thuile. This time there was a lot more snow which made the skiing a bit more challenging but still lots of variety to suit a range of abilities. Went with another family and abilities ranged from scaredy cat to daredevil, and we were all happy. By far though the best thing about La... More

A great range of runs and a very efficient series of lifts - much less queuing than in other places I have been to. This resort is good for families - but probably would suit those that have done some skiing before, rather than complete novices. Lots of good Red Runs - and a few challenging Black runs (so my...

Visited second week in January 2104. Great little resort, very underestimated and totally family friendly. You won't get bored with the runs, lift system was good, loads of snow; locals quite friendly; coffee and cake excellent.....pizza to die for! You can ski over to France if you wish. Would not hesitate to go again. Resort was not busy, so plenty... More

We had a week skiing and boarding over the new year period. I am a skier and my partner a boarder. Quiet slopes with few queues, mainly red runs, which we enjoyed. If you're a beginner/lower int, this resort is a bit limited. If you enjoy a range a red runs this is a good, inexpensive and friendly ski area.... More

The variation in slopes is not great, connections to La Rosiere and especially back from La Rosiere are bad, two old towbarlifts. because of the huge amount of snow the towbars were very tiring . Snow in La Rosiere was slush because of the sun so we decided to go back to La thuile quickly. Quality of snow in la... More

We selected the resort after reading the 'amazing' reviews however our experience was a little different. The village is small as expected but generally ok, we stayed at the Le Miramonti hotel which was very very good. Our main issue was with the variety and grading of the slopes, in a mixed ability group we found that the 'easy' slopes,... More
