    Excellent well-groomed pistes in Pila

    Pila’s ski area is set in a sunny bowl, sheltered from the wind, and has an enviable snow record.

    The drive up to Pila from the Aosta Valley has to be one of the most spectacular in the Alps – as the road climbs, the valley drops away below and the imposing mountains of the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Mont Blanc come into sight. Popular with intermediate skiers, the ski area is mainly made up of red runs, with a few black runs and some good off-piste. Pila is a snowsure destination with superb snow-making equipment and if you like skiing in the trees you’ll really like the wooded runs. Higher up there are cruisey open areas where the powder lies.

    The resort is modern, purpose-built and car-free, set above the Roman town of Aosta. Similar to other resorts in the Aosta Valley the town gets busy at the weekend with locals from Milan and Turin creating a small, but lively après scene. If you’re after something a bit more lively then you can easily head into Aosta town for more bars and great restaurants.

    Ski information

    Ski Information Beginners

    Very well suited to beginners, several wide, gentle blue runs make up the heart of the ski area. A definite plus point is that there are no drag lifts anywhere in Pila, with carpet lifts instead in the nursery areas.

    Ski Information Intermediates

    A wonderland of red and blue runs opens up from the centre of the resort. From the top of the Chamole chairlift there are no fewer than four different routes to choose from on picturesque runs down tree lined pistes. The runs are wide and generally uncrowded, which maximises skiing enjoyment.

    Ski Information Advanced

    Pila gives the advanced skier the opportunity to try the long testing Resselin run or bash the bumps on the demanding Tsa Creuisa. The area lift pass includes two days skiing in the other Val d'Aosta resorts, join your Crystal ski rep for a ski away day to these nearby ski areas.
