Savoy Castle in Gressoney-Saint-Jean was built by King Umberto I for Queen Margherita of Savoy, who was a keen mountain climber - something that may have been considered unusual for a female royal consort in the 19th century!


Skiing in Monterosa Ski


Scenic Monterosa Ski encompasses all the villages between the Monte Rosa and Mont Avic, and offers access to skiing across several resorts in three valleys in the Aosta Valley region. There are 89 runs served by 44 lifts, made up of 25 blue, 52 red and 12 black slopes, as well as significant off-piste skiing, ensuring plenty of options for all abilities.

There are slopes of all kinds across the three valleys and the best place to base yourself if you want to easily access everything is Gressoney, which is located in the middle and has a lift going up to the Monte Rosa ski area’s highest point at 3,275 m.

Gressoney is made up of two traditional villages, Gressoney-La-Trinité and Gressoney-Saint-Jean, which each have their own charm and are ideal for a relaxing ski stay. It’s easy to access all of Monterosa Ski from Gressoney-La-Trinité, while Gressoney-Saint-Jean have their own pistes, including slopes in the woodlands.

The largest resort in the Monterosa region, Champoluc is the place to go if you’re a beginner looking to learn on the gentlest terrain while taking in amazing glacier views. The town itself is set along a mountain road and the runs are mainly reds suitable for intermediate and expert skiers.

Much of Monterosa Ski’s off-piste skiing is situated in Alagna on the far side of the region. This is the most challenging part of the ski region and is also relatively uncrowded as a result, making it ideal if you prefer to have the slopes to yourself.

Other notable ski areas include Antagnod, which is particularly suited to families and has 14 km of pistes. Its slopes are located at altitudes of between 1,730 m and 2,310 m, while the resort is above 1,500 m. Skiers take the cable car from Antagnod to Pianalunga and then head to either Col d’Olen, from where Champoluc and Gressoney can be accessed, or to Bocchetta elle Pisse for competition-standard skiing.

Brusson at 1,338 m is where competitions are held and is especially good for cross-country skiing with its 38 km of trails. The skiing is decent with some fantastic tree-lined runs, and it’s easy to get to Estoul at the foot of Mount Bieteron from here.

Champorcher has 21 km of slopes and offers great views of Monte Cervino, Monte Rosa and Glacier Rosa dei Banchi via the Cimetta Rossa Express lift. It’s conveniently located for skiers arriving in the region from Milan and Turin. The Del Bosco slope is ideal for expert skiers and is the training ground for competitive French, Swedish and Spanish skiers.
