Espace San Bernardo Ski area
If you haven't been, you're missing out. Yes, I'm talking about the very popular ski area made up between the resorts of La Rosiere, France and La Thuille, Italy which together offer some of the finest snow conditions worldwide. Nestled in the middle of the Alpes in the Aosta Valley with spectacular views of Mont Blanc, this is truely an international destination to visit at least once in your life time. In fact, one ski pass is all you will need to ski both resorts without borders.
On your doorstep are over a 150 kms of piste and 73 runs to ski. There are plenty of greens, blues, reds and blacks to suit all levels. La Rosiere is normally preffered by the beginners with La Thuille offering slightly more challenging terrain. There is also a ski jump and a snow park, the Espace San Bernardo ski area, will satisfy all your winter sports requirements. /p>
Both resorts are packed full of authentic alpine charm. The pistes rise to an altitude of 2,600m and the whole area is usually bathed in sunshine, intensifying the enjoyment of your winter wonderland experience. High quality accommodation is available both sides of the border in the form of chalets, apartments and hotels. Travelling between the two countries is made simple via the cable cars onto and over the fantastic mountain range.
