    Excellent well-groomed pistes in Pila

    The drive up to Pila from the Aosta Valley has to be one of the most spectacular in the Alps. As the road climbs and the valley drops away below, the imposing mountains of both the Monte Rosa and Mont Blanc come into sight. As Pila appears above it is clear that this resort has the perfect location: a bowl sheltered from the wind with an enviable snow record yet a fine sunny position.

    • €50 hotel credit

      There'll be a credit of €50 waiting for you at the hotel with this offer. Use it in the bar or restaurant and save some cash while you're away.

      Terms apply.

    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.

    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.

    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.
