First time in La Thuile and will certainly return. I haven't stayed anywhere else in this charming, traditional and not overly busy ski resort but I can't imagine anywhere else offering greater comfort and value for money than Chalet Alpina. Only a five minute walk to the main lifts, gondola, ski pass office and equipment rental shops; the chalet is perfectly positioned to enjoy the restaurants and bars in the village without having to endure any associated noise that may occur, is very clean and comfortable with Crocs provided for guests to wear indoors. Felt a bit like Goldilocks; where we had stayed previously the bed was too hard and then the pillows were too soft, here it was like Baby Bear's bed, just perfect. The room was warm, comfortable and sufficiently spacious, breakfast is served in a charming area that doubles as a lounge where bar facilities are offered in the early evening. Chalet Alpina does not serve dinner which is ideal as one is encouraged to visit the village restaurants some of which are very good indeed, with Eddie and Debbie more than happy to recommend and book restaurants, some providing discounts to their guests They can arrange ski lockers in a ski-room beside the main lifts and their extensive local knowledge really does serve to make the experience here very enjoyable. They are skiers/walkers/climbers who successfully strive to provide the sort of experience they would wish to enjoy themselves.
Each morning Eddie makes himself available to advise where the best snow and conditions are. During our stay we had a few "very bad weather days" but skied a full day every day thanks to Eddie's research on the webcams and his advice based on local knowledge. The ski pass for La Thuile gives access to a vast area including La Rosiere, Courmayeur and the Monterosa ski area so there is always somewhere to ski.
I recommend Chalet Alpina to anyone who wants a great place to stay, well positioned in a wonderful resort run by people who really care about their guests and offer excellent value for money.
