La Thuile Ski Resort & Transfer Guide

If you’re looking for a quiet spot away from the crowded slopes of France, La Thuile could be for you. The ski resort is laid back, affordable and utterly pleasant. An excellent starting place for beginners and popular with Brits on a budget, La Thuile oozes the charm and sentiment you’d expect from a small Italian mountain village. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about La Thuile ski resort and a handy guide to local airport transfers.

 

Ski Resort Location

Sitting among the Valle d’Aosta, La Thuile was once a respected mining village that has now been expanded and restored. Today, sections of the area resemble that of a French purpose built resort. Don’t let that fool you though, the historic village is both quaint and picturesque. The combination of old and new combine perfectly together to offer a genuine but comfortable winter getaway.

La Thuile is known locally as ‘Little Siberia’ and claims to have the best snow conditions in the Alps. You can easily ski over into France to La Rosiere on one ski pass. The village, along with its French neighbour, is part of the international ski resort Espace San Bernado. This offers access to the breath-taking Rutor and Miravidi glaciers.

How Much Will My Transfer Cost?

When pricing our transfers, we take a dynamic approach. We don’t just offer a flat rate for the transfer to and from La Thuile. Instead, we take into consideration the individual circumstances of your journey. We’re already cheaper than our competitors but this dynamic approach lets us offer the very best deal.

When you come to Alps 2 Alps for a quote, we start with our standard rate and then alter this to complement your circumstances. Here are the factors that will affect your La Thuile transfer quote:

  • Transfer journey – what airport you’re coming from
  • Number of people travelling
  • Day of travel
  • Time of travel
  • Special discounts available

All of the above will only ever result in our base-rate for ski transfers going down – we never over-inflate our prices at any time or for any reason. We also offer substantial discounts for off-peak, off-season and midweek transfers to La Thuile. If looking for the best possible deals, travelling outside peak season or midweek typically results in the biggest savings. We offer midweek (Monday to Friday) prices with up to 60% discount than weekend prices.

Your transfer quote will also depend on vehicle availability, transfer schedule, vehicle utilisation and other costs like road tolls and airport parking charges.

If you have any specific requirements or will be travelling as part of a larger group, please get in touch directly so we can discuss this.
