Pila is a small to medium sized resort that sits high above the Aosta valley. The area is little known outside of Italy. Pila is quite a hidden gem. It has relatively few queues and some great terrain which makes for good skiing. The bulk of the runs at Pila appear to be intermediate but there are adequate beginner slopes and they tend to be quiet. This allows you to improve without being constantly worried about collisions. For the intermediates and experts the upper slopes at Pila are wide with nice open bowls. A small hike usually opens up untracked powder after a dump. Lower down there are some nice tree runs and the forest is not too thick as to prevent you exploring. Off the slopes there are purpose built apartments and a handful of restaurants. Pila resort itself is linked to a town down in the valley but there is also a road connecting the two. This is not for the faint hearted as it is very tight and steep. Your ski pass at Pila will also give you one day at the nearby resort of Courmayeur.

Resorts close to Pila include: Cogne (9 km), Saint Rhemy-Crevacol (19 km), Valgrisenche (21 km), Rhemes-Notre-Dame (22 km), Torgnon (22 km),

Visitor Reviews of Pila


John Walsh from United Kingdom writes:

We (a group of 6 or sometimes 8) have been going to Pila since 2009. Every year we talk about going somewhere different, but we continue to ski in Pila. Lots of people return year after year.

Runs are good, never crowded, lifts are good, never crowded (apart from 1st run in the morning and weekends when the Italians descend). Night life is a bit quite, but I think that keeps Pila being the Gem that it is.
