Monterosa Ski is a secret waiting to be discovered. The ski complex is located in the heart of the Italian Alps at the foot of Monte Rosa, the second highest massif in Europe. We are speaking about a vast system of ski stations: the main ski complex “3 Valley continuous skiing” is completed by the five resorts, small pearls in the skiable domain.
The ski resort bestraddles Piedmont and the Aosta Valley reaching a height of 3,250 metres between the territories of Alagna Valsesia, Gressoney-La-Trinité and Champoluc.
Instead, the small stations offer an infinite number of activities on snow in the four valleys at a lower price and at lower levels and as such are particularly suitable for families and beginners.
Hence, the opportunities on the slope range from “ski baptisms” to much more demanding descents over kilometres of perfectly groomed routes which vertically develop to almost 2,000 metres. Breathtaking panoramas, efficient ski lifts and stunning descents guarantee fun for everyone and a rush of adrenalin for the daring. Don’t miss the Fun Slope Bettaforca, the new Snowpark Alpe di Mera, the alpine ski routes, the night time descents on the Leonardo David Special international slope and the Monterosa Freeride Paradise, the kingdom of off-piste skiing with untrodden snow and the rush of adrenalin that comes from life on blades. Monterosa Ski is also easy to reach from the main cities in Northern Italy in journey times of one to three hours.
IN THE SUMMER
During the summer season, Monte Rosa beckons mountaineers from all over the world. The high mountain refuges offer refreshments to those wishing to go on the numerous itineraries and also offer the best support in organising ascents to the summits of which a good fifteen are over 4,000 metres. The ski lifts that go to the Bettaforca Pass from Ayas and Gressoney allow you to reach the famous Quintino Sella al Felik Mountain Refuge while the ski lifts from Stafal and Alagna take you to the Indren glacier to facilitate accessing the universally renounced Mantova and Gnifetti and the Capanna Margherita.
On the opening of the summer calendar, Monterosa Ski offers a series of unmissable spring appointments to allow mountaineers to walk along the glacier and take full advantage of all the seasons.
Yet summer also means mountain biking! The ski lifts operating in the summer season, be it on the main circle or the local stations, are equipped to carry bikes. In collaboration with professionals from the sector operating in the territory, Monterosa Ski offers a route map with all the most stunning routes for those who love travelling on two wheels and also enjoy uncontaminated nature. A paper copy is available in all the ticket offices in the ski resort but you can also download the file from the www.visitmonterosa.com website.
Trekking is one of the most appealing activities and the numerous and stunning routes throughout the Monte Rosa Valleys are suitable for trekkers of all levels. The Monterosa Ski trekking tourist packages have been designed to help you discover the most beautiful corners of the territory. The Tour des Six, Monterosa Randò and the Sentieri del Lys are just some of our suggestions.
