If you are going to ski in France this year, our RideYourTime day trip to Italy will add a special taste to your week. The day trip to Italy is perfect for every kind of skier. It can suit from an intermediate level, with its mellow blue runs, to an advanced level with its stunning off piste in the Espace San Bernardo.
After a short drive from your local Tarentaise resort. The day will start in the French Resort of La Rosiere and with a couple of chairlifts we will head to the boarder and ski into Italy. The Italian ski resort of La Thuile offers different scenery, beautiful empty slopes and many characteristic Italian bars, where you can stop to sip an espresso or perhaps, a typical “bombardino” if you feel so!
If you are an expert skier and you are seeking for some excitement we will guide you to try your skills on the “3 Franco Berthod”, a steep black run that descends into La Thuile and will be the WorldCup piste this year.
Afterwards, you will have lunch in one of the traditional Italian Restaurants, where you can experience the real taste of Italy with the amazing pizzas, pastas and tiramisus they offer at great value.
If you are an off piste lover, the 2 new chairlifts built last year, now give access to the North face of Montvalenzan opening up a huge area of backcountry skiing. If you are looking for the ultimate experience you can add a Heli trip to access the Italian backcountry in style. Heliskiing is forbidden in France, but easily accessed from skiing from La Rosiere into Italy.
Different options and prices are available depending on how many drops you’d like to do. One of our favourites is to be dropped in the Italian domain and then ski all the way back to France, passing through the picturesque village of Le Crot, and arriving in the beautiful La Mazure.
This winter we will also be offering Italian Saturdays. Experience something different on the last day of your ski holiday with your Italian guides who can help you find some of the best skiing and the best food Italy has to offer. Buy a 5 day ski pass in your local resort and end your holiday in with something special. This trip is perfect for families and groups that want to discover a new resort.
