Ski range from 1,600m - 3,275m

The Monterosa ski area is a hidden treasure, made up of three separate valleys and including the resorts of Champoluc, Gressoney and Alagna all on one lift pass. There is an efficient and fast moving lift system so getting from one valley to another is easy on the open, well maintained and well marked pistes.

The area has high altitude skiing, up to 3,275m which rivals most top French resorts and as a result offers good snow conditions throughout the winter.

One phrase to describe this area would be ‘Piste and Quiet’ and you will be pleasantly surprised to find relatively uncrowded pistes, especially on weekdays when the Italian weekend visitors are hard at work in their offices.

Most of the après ski revolves around the bars in the village centre of Champoluc, and is relatively informal with charming and relaxed Italian character. There are a number of bars and pubs to choose from and the village certainly livens up at the weekends when many Italians arrive from Friday to Sunday.

At the end of the skiing day, you can try bars such as Bruno’s which is the last après ski bar on the mountain, just metres from the end of the last run which has occasional live music. Atelier Gourmand is conveniently positioned just at the end of the slopes right under the ski lift and bars such as West Road Pub will have occasional karaoke.

There is a good selection of restaurants for your evening mean on the Chalet Hotel staff night off serving gourmet food as well as hearty Italian fare. Try a Tagliata, a typical local steak. There are also some rustic restaurants on the mountain that organise transport up on the lifts and then a ride on a piste basher back afterwards.

SKIING IN Champoluc

Ski Range 1,212m – 3,275m

The Monterosa area is one of Italy’s best kept skiing secrets, now being discovered by British skiers who appreciate the combination of high altitude skiing, quiet slopes, stunning scenery and the friendliness and local traditions of this wonderful area.

The area has high altitude skiing, up to 3,275m which rivals most top French resorts and as a result offers good snow conditions throughout the winter.

With the perfect backdrop of the Monterosa Mountain and a ski area spreading over three valleys, it is a perfect base for all abilities of skiers and boarders who like to try something new and appreciate the good things in life.

Our accommodation is in Champoluc, a traditional village full of character and we are sure that Chalet Hotel Breithorn will prove a popular choice.

Champoluc is a delightful and charming village, full of character and the perfect base to discover the region. From the village centre the main gondola departs to the Crest area and this is where the beginner’s slopes can be found. There are 2 travellators in this area to help build up confidence and keep you moving whether on skis or a board. The local ski school has an excellent reputation and most novices should be able to ski over in to the Gressoney valley on their first week of skiing.

The Monterosa ski area is really an ‘Intermediates skier’s delight’ with many wide runs and most are of a good length and best of all, there are plenty of well placed restaurants and pit stops on the way. You really have the feeling of travelling here between the different valleys and you can plan your day. The upper slopes tend to be more open with spectacular views and different in each valley whilst lower slopes are tree-lined. There is a great selection of red runs in the Aysa valley towards Champoluc, providing challenging terrain on which to perfect your technique.

Monterosa is a magnet for skiers and boarders looking for off-piste powder. In the area where the lifts between Gressoney and Alagna meet is a further cable-car whisking you up a further 300m to Indren from where you can drop off-piste in a number of directions as well as a marked itinerary run down 1,000m to Gabiet, the midway station of Gressoney lifts. There is also an easily accessible off-piste route beside the long run from Passo Salati towards Alagna. Heli-skiing can also be arranged locally.

Add to this the lovely villages of Gressoney-La-Trinite, Alagna, Stafal, Frachey and of course Champoluc to give the ski area character, something not always available in a ski area of this size.
