Attractive mix of snow-sure height and stunning views

Located above the Roman town of Aosta, Pila is a hidden gem. This modern, purpose built resort is one of the most snow sure destinations in the Alps offering beautiful treeline skiing and some great terrain. The well-groomed pistes are rarely overcrowded outside of the weekends meaning less time queueing and more time skiing. This compact resort is easy to navigate with a fun, friendly atmosphere. Pila has numerous eateries including a number of mountain restaurants all of which are reasonably priced. A 20 minute cable car links this welcoming ski resort with historic Aosta should you wish to venture further afield. The number of red runs makes the resort ideal for intermediates, but Pila also caters well for beginners with long blue runs and no draglifts. Some good off-piste can be found between the trees, combined with a few black runs to offer something to advanced skiers.
