Pila is an affordable ski resort with an enviable snow record and stunning views across the Italian Alps towards France and Switzerland. The wide, sunny slopes and the compact network of mainly long blue and red runs make Pila an ideal base for families and mixed ability groups.
Pila has over 70km of perfectly prepared piste and offers great facilities for children. It is a quiet and relaxed, family friendly resort, but does offer some good bars and restaurants. Much of Pila’s holiday accommodation is just a stone’s throw from the piste.
The direct cable car from Aosta, means that staying in the ancient Roman town is also a possibility for your Pila holiday.
