La Thuile has to compete against much easier to access resorts in the Alps. They do seem to make the effort though and it's relatively cheap. There's a wide spread of good restaurants and bars. The campsite is decent and the free motor home car park with free electric is next to the river. It has a proper summer season... More

It is a very nice little place with a unique level of access to the mountain that you can ski on. Whilst being here I found that renting my skis and storing them for the four days I was there was extremely easy to do (easier than any other pace I have been to in-fact) However its a very calm...

A great place to ski with wonderful views. amazing sunshine both times we've been. Not too busy on the slopes when we went (Easter). Plenty of lifts and lots of places to eat, on and off the mountain.

My husband and I were looking to take my non skiing parents and toddler away so that we could enjoy the "on tap babysitting" and get out and enjoy the slopes. Pre child we visited many French resorts such as Val Thoren, Tignes etc where you are really very spoilt for choice of runs etc in comparison to La Thuile.... More

Wide open runs, gobs of sunshine, calm pistes and barely and lift lines. Really enjoyable. Perfect for kids as the runs on La Combe are ideal for little learners. Blacks to the bottom are great. Black 2 was a real treat. Only ding was the quality of the mountain facilities but one quickly forgets them back on the slopes.

Great place to ski for a W/E. We flew to Milan Malpensa, hired a car and drove to the resort late Thursday night (2 1/2 hrs). Great 3 days skiing, skied over to France, lunched on the slopes in La Rosiere and dined out at Pepita Cafe for dinner. Stayed Hotel Miramonta. Picturesque, great w/e skiing, not for party animals...
