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.

Visitor Reviews of Pila

don from United Kingdom writes:

Visited early March 2017; a bit of a hidden gem. We spent 4 days of our 7 in the area at Pila. Had an apartment in Aosta area and used gondola each day. Some great intermediate runs, especially higher up the mountain. The blacks were good, not too steep but steep enough to class them as genuine for sure, some good reds too. Overall, a good variety of runs. Many hotels in Pila appear to be ski in and out.
What I feel lets the area down is the number of slow old lifts, many only 2 or 3 seaters, although there was on the whole little queueing apart from weekends where it was much more busy. This does, however, mean that due to lift capacities the pistes were never busy apart from the main blue through the centre of the area.
Decent, good value places to eat can be found around the area.
