If you have visited this resort not too long ago, why not add your own short review to this page?
Monterosa Ski’s three resorts – Champoluc, Gressoney la Trinité and Alagna – are popular with weekenders from Milan and Turin. Internationally, the extensive off-piste terrain has long attracted experts; but the resorts are not household names, and they retain a friendly, small-scale, unspoiled Italian ambience that we (and a growing band of readers) like a lot.
The three-valley network of slopes is anything but small-scale: Alagna and Champoluc are an impressive 17km apart – slightly further apart than Courchevel and Val Thorens, to make the obvious comparison. But a glance at the piste map reveals that the Italian network is skeletal compared with the full-bodied Trois Vallées, and the lift company has now accepted our view that its piste figures were exaggerated.
News – last season 2011/12
At Gressoney, a new gondola replaced the existing one from Stafal to Gabiet. The historic Rifugio Guglielmina above Alagna burnt down. It is not clear if it will be rebuilt.
