Pila consists of 2 parts, the one part is the old town of Aosta and the modern resort of Pila. Aosta is where you'll find most of the non-ski activities with many shops; cafes; and historic sites. Pila is where all the skiing happens, with limited Apres Ski and nightlife. Most of the runs are best suited fro bgeinners and intermediates, with a few excellent off-pistes for experts. Snow boarders have a lot to keep them busy, with an excellent half-pipe and many jumps. This is a great place to take the family on a skiing holiday.
