La Thuile is a lesser know ski area near the head of the Aosta valley in Italy. There are extensive north facing slopes which lead to the Petit Saint Benard pass. The north side of the Chaz Dura is an exciting trip which begins amongst craggy, high mountain terrain and then makes its way through steep pine forests and glades where good powder can usually be found.
