Last month, Ed and I were lucky enough to fit in a skiing trip to La Thuile, Italy. Skiing for us is a huge luxury and one of our most relaxing trips of the year. Though of course, it’s active, your mind is thinking about nothing but sliding down slopes all day long, and come lunch or dinner time, options are usually limited so you don’t have to think too hard about that either – especially here in Italy: it’s pizza or it’s pasta. What’s more, spas and ski resorts tend to go hand in hand, so you can start and finish your day in the sauna. Heaven.
Our king-size bed allowed for maximum post-piste R&R! Every day after finishing on the slopes, we went to the supermarket to buy an €8 bottle of Prosecco and a bag of crisps, and had the most luxurious of early evenings sharing them in our room before dinner. The life!
Thinking about future trips already, I would definitely love to come back here, not least because the hotel was perfect but the resort was too. La Thuile is great for intermediate to advanced skiers – plenty of long, sometimes challenging blues, great reds, and pretty hairy backs runs too! Loved being able to ski over the border into France – very awesome.
