Ski without borders against a breathtaking natural backdrop. Fun for all is guaranteed at Espace San Bernardo—international ski park and must-visit destination for those who love skiing under a wide open sky! 

ski season dates  2018/2019 

01/12/2018 - 22/04/2019 

Every winter, skiers from all corners of the globe flock to experience our more than 150 kilometres of slopes of varying levels of difficulty—from beginners to experts. The local trails on the Italian side of the mountains and the French ( La Rosière) are a great draw for famous international athletes, in particular the legendary Franco Berthod Slope 3 at La Thuile, which in 2016 played host to three speed trials for the Women’s Skiing World Cup (two for downhill and one SuperG), and in 2017 the Telemark World Cup.  

The Telemark World Cup will come back to La Thuile on 20th  - 21th January 2019.

A sizeable ski park which, thanks to its geographical location, enjoys a favourable microclimate that prolongs the winter sports season. Optimal snow quality is guaranteed by the unceasing work of our slope custodians and snowcats, not to mention our 400 snow cannons that ensure excellent coverage.

Espace San Bernardo is also home to 2 slalom stadiums, 1 snowpark, 1 boardercross slope, 2 fun cross areas, 1 secure free-rider zone and 1 snowkite zone—which are easily reached by our transport systems—as well as 2 games parks for kids to meet every type of demand. And if you want to take home a souvenir or immortalise your performance, all you need to do is download our SKI PIC App and pass by one of the 4 photo-stations on the Italian side of the park. 

The highest altitudes in the ski park (2,650 metres) are now in the Belvedere area. They are easy to reach by ski-lift from La Rosière on the French side, and descend towards Colle della Traversette. From this standpoint the 360° view of the mountains—French on the one side and Italian on the other—is utterly breathtaking. Starting from the 2018-2019 winter season the highest point of the ski area will be Mont Valaisan, with its 2.800 meters.

The realization of two new chairlifts (capacity of six people) will give you the chance of reaching it from the French side while enjoying a stunning and unmissable view!

It only takes a few minutes from town to reach the lower slopes (1,441 m) thanks to the Piccolo San Bernardo DMC cable car, which can transport over 3,000 people/hour to the Les Suches (2,200 m). In 2017, this facility opened the first Ski Sauna—a timber-clad cabin with fragrant and welcoming sauna inside to enfold its passengers in a warm embrace. This project was developed in collaboration with Pré-Saint Didier Spa, QC Terme Group. 

85 slopes, a single international ski-pass, and a total of 39 fast, modern ski- and chairlifts which can carry up to 63,200 people/per hour, enable you to enjoy fantastic full days of non-stop skiing, with no waiting and no queue.

Another way of getting to the top is the comfortable four-person Bosco Express chairlift, situated in town near the Ski School.

Marvellous views of the blinding Rutor glacier and the Mont Blanc chain will provide a backdrop for an experience that is not just sport, but also a feast for the eyes and soul.
