What's it like at Pila resort?

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.

Skied Pila for the first time last year and we're going back in a couple of weeks. If you enjoy your apres-ski evenings, best advice might be to stay in Aosta, which is a lovely old Roman town with good nightlife and plenty of restaurants and plenty of accommodation.

Great scenery, views to the north of both Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn, good range of pistes and very few queues, especially away from the beginners slopes. Ideal for a few days skiing and if you're going for longer lots of major and minor resorts are nearby, within an hour or so, so you can get plenty of variety.
