Together with La Salle, Morgex, Pré St Didier,and Courmayeur, La Thuile belongs to the ancient Vallis Digna, the final tract of the Aosta Valleybefore it enters into French territory by way of the Piccolo San Bernardo Pass.Today La Thuile is a renowned outdoor center,but it hasn’t lost its old mountain town character,
nor its historic and geographic identity.All aspects of the town and the surrounding landscape refer back to the mountains and the Aosta Valley.Along the snow-packed ski trails, through Nature’s silence, there echoes the footsteps of peasants, the voices of miners, the prayers of monks.
Since the inauguration of the 3,000 person/hour cable car in 1988, La Thuile has become one of the great European ski resorts. The ski area also boasts 5 quad chairlifts, 3 triple chairlifts, 2 double chairlifts, and 5 button lifts. All combined allows for the transport of 26,000 persons/hour. The feather in our cap is the international ski passage to the French ski area La Rosière. One lift ticket
accesses 150 k of runs, served by 35 lifts with a combined capacity to transport 45,000 persons/hour.
