Espace San Bernardo is an international ski area shared by Italy and France and offers over 150 km of wonderful ski runs, which you can access with the same ski-pass.
37 ski lifts, 80 ski runs: red for medium difficulty, black for experts, and blue for beginners. There are also snowboarding and Telemark runs and 16 km of cross-country ski trails.
At the heart of the ski area are the peaks of Chaz Dura at 2579 m and Belvedere at 2641 m, from where you have panoramic views of the Mont Blanc chain and Europe’s highest mountains.

Guests can make use of the long-established La Thuile ski school, one of the most famous in Italy.
