At La Thuile you can find trails of different levels that from 2400m of elevation wind down into the valley with over 1000m of elevation drop. From the open corners with berms of the easy H – FLOW, to the technical single-tracks and natural sections of the very long and now super-famous K Trail. The bottom area of the chairlift Seggiovia Bosco Express in town hosts instead the area thought for those who are still learning the MTB fundamentals, with the Moustache Kids Park and the fun track of Dual Slalom. This is where also the Scuola di Mountain Bike of La Thuile is located, a MTB school that offers packages of guided rides and lessons for all levels, including for e-MTBs, right in front of mighty mountains such as Mont Blanc or Rutor glacier.
