What people are saying about Backcountry Skiing | La Thuile


We had a fantastic day with Alesandro in La Thuile. It had not snowed much for over 3 weeks, so he recommended that we go Ski Touring, and we managed to find fresh tracks. Could not have gone better!



Nicolas was very friendly, punctual, and very professional. We had a great day skiing off piste and felt in safe hands. Would highly recommend Nicolas as a an amazing guide. Thank you for what was a great day! All 7 of us loved it.



Paolo made the ski trip a total success in difficult conditions. His knowledge and enthusiasm are worth the investment to get the max from this ski area. Thanks again
