La Thuile may get less snow than its French neighbour La Rosière (with which it is linked), but it does have the shadier north-facing slopes and so snow quality is sometimes better – especially later in the season.


With a respectable average skiing height and extensive snow-making, snow cover is generally very reliable.

Where to ski in bad weather:

La Thuile has lots of trees on its lower slopes, which include some challenging pistes. Above the mid-station, however, the area is exposed and some lifts are prone to closure in bad weather, including the links to La Rosière.

Where to head in poor snow conditions:

Locally, the best snow can usually be found in the high bowls above Les Suches.


In the unlikely event of a lack of snow, it is possible that the linked resort of La Rosière over in France will be in better shape, as it is subject to different weather patterns.
