Ski Italy and France on the same day

Resort Information

On a school ski trip to La Thuile you can ski in Italy and France on the same day! La Thuile is an attractive mountain village with plenty of shops and restaurants to keep you entertained in the evenings. This is a quiet but safe resort, which still has a huge amount to offer in terms of skiing opportunities – the San Bernardino pass will allow you to ski from La Thuile over the border into the French resort of La Rosière. La Thuile also boasts one of the longest winter seasons in the Alps. Opening at the end of November, you can usually ski in La Thuile well into April. Another major benefit of choosing a high-altitude resort like La Thuile is the fantastic snow conditions.

Skiing Information

La Thuile is among one of the largest ski areas in the Alps, with 160km of skiing terrain. The variety of skiing is outstanding and the slopes are strikingly crowd-free, even at half-term. La Thuile is an excellent choice of destination if you have any beginners in your group, as the resort offers them the rare opportunity to learn to ski at 2200m, so they can really enjoy the full mountain experience from day one! Intermediates will love the 11km San Bernardo run, which drops you down into the heart of the French resort of La Rosière. And for the advanced skiers, there are several black runs that will test both your skis and your quads!

For me, the most exciting part of my job is meeting the students and hearing all about their fun experiences on the slopes! I believe that school travel is wonderful for the development of young people. – Tracy West Ski Specialist

Don't take our word for it …

Les Deux Alpes is a fantastic resort for school groups. One of the best towns for après-ski activities. The slopes have enough variation for all levels of skiing and having returned here for the 2nd time, I can safely say it's one of our favourites. The hotel was easy walking distance. The resort was very quiet when we were there, never once queuing for a lift/cable car. The instruction from the ski school was fantastic and our students progressed beyond expectation. — Holden Lane High School
