WINTER NEWS 2023!
From the winter season 2022/23 there is a novelty in the panorama of ski touring trails available in the Espace San Bernardo.
In fact, as part of the project "Nouvelles Liaisons tranfrontalières", a track has been prepared that will connect the Italian side from La Thuile, to the French side from La Rosière.
In particular, the Italian track goes from Les Suches to Belvedere Pass, in a prepared track that can be travelled safely.
For those who want to go further and if they have a ski pass, from Belvedere Pass it will be possible to go towards France taking the track "Carabiniers", going down to the start of the chairlift Chardonnay, which will take you to Fort de la Traversette. From here you can descend to the village of La Rosière.
Starting from La Rosière you can choose between three trails, all of which converge at Fort de la Traversette, from which you can then descend to the departure of the Bellecombe 1 ski lift, followed by Bellecombe 2, that will lead to the Belvedere Pass from which you can descend to La Thuile.
Both tracks can be used as a return for those who started from the opposite mountainside.

Just you and the mountain
Scale the mountain, reach the top and take in the awe-inspiring natural scenery and views across the peaks. In the magical silence and across the pristine white snow, the alpine skiing at La Thuile is incomparable and offers a wide range of excursions guaranteed to provide pure, heart-warming and unforgettable experiences. For example, there is a route from Pont Serrand (1,609 m) to Combe Varin (2,620 m)—a fun 4-hour trip that is fairly easy to make, or why not try the 13-km trip from Colle del Piccolo San Bernardo to La Thuile? There are several slight slopes and a unique landscape that allows you glimpses of Mont Blanc and Aiguille de Trélatête. The more intrepid among you will be sure to enjoy the itinerary from La Joux (1,494 m) to Mont Valaisan (2,891 m)—a destination that offers a 360° panorama of the French mountains and the highest peaks in the Alps. The descent is just as picturesque, with the trail leading through banks of snow and the quiet forest.
To make the most of the experience, make sure you check the weather forecast and set off fully equipped—remember that safety must always come first, and there are experienced alpine guides available to accompany you on your trip.
