This regulation refers to all Monterosa Ski passes, that is pedestrian tickets, daily passes, several-day passes (consecutive days or non-consecutive days) and season passes. Purchasing the ski pass implies the full understanding and acceptance of all the sales’ conditions, established by this regulation as displayed to the public by each ticket office. The Monterosa Ski area is owned by two companies: Monterosa S.p.A. for the lifts and slopes in Aosta Valley and Monterosa 2000 S.p.A. for the lifts and slopes in Piedmont.
For the season 22/23, Monterosa Ski applies for the ski area Monterosa Ski 3 Valleys (Champoluc-Gressoney-La-Trinité-Alagna):
– Dynamic pricing: clients who buyes their skipass online are granted a more convenient price than the one applied at the ticket office; the sooner a client buyes, the more he saves;
– Monterosa Ski is the first skiarea testing the BLE technlogy applied to ski thanks to the new bluetooth gates installed at each lift; tests will be done during the season on a restrict number of users and will be then extended to all skiers.
1. Before using the lifts, clients must equip themselves with a valid transport ticket. Type, validity and rates of the transport tickets are established by the company and published on the official website www.visitmonterosa.com and available at the ticket offices. The price of the daily and several-day Monterosa Ski pass is dynamic: the rate is calculated by the system and may change depending on different calculations and variables. Depending on the seasonality, the minimum price is set at € 38/44/50 and the maximum at € 52/56/60: these reference rates are the ones for online purchase that is, at any time, cheaper than the purchase at the ticket office. In the event of purchase at the ticket office, clients has to check that the ticket he receives is the one he asked for. It is not possible to change or extend the issued tickets already used at a later date. All tickets CANNOT be REFUNDED or REPLACED with other tickets (neither for technical problems nor for bad weather or wind).
2. ALL TICKETS, except for several non-consecutive-day tickets, are STRICTLY PERSONAL AND UN-TRANSFERABLE. Any misuse and in particular the transfer or the selling to a third person of the ticket will lead to an immediate revocation and to the application of administrative and penal sanctions provided for by law (see L.R. Valle d’Aosta n°20/2008, L. 363/2003, L.R. 2/2009 Piedmont Region and D.P.R. 11/7/1980 n°753). In case of regional tickets (Aosta Valley season tickets and several day-tickets and teleskipass), the whole procedure is managed directly by them.
3. The beginning and ending of the lifts’ activity for each season is decided by the Company; the decision is made considering different conditions such as, in example, climate conditions, snow conditions, safety conditions. The publication of the opening and closing day is has an approximate value and is not a commitment to open or keep open the ski resort. The operation of each ski season can be suspended at any time, temporary or permanently, by the Company on the basis of the climate and snow conditions, for safety reasons or other justified reasons.
The operation can be also suspended at any time due to force majeure reasons such as, in example, electric black out, strikes, fire, hearth quacke, war, terroristic attack, epidemic and, more in general, for reasons not depening on the will or the control of the Company.
In the event of suspension of the service for one of the above mentioned reasons, no reimbursement is due, unless foreseen by the law.
Particularly, referring to seasonal and annual passes, the client assumes the risk that the season can be shorter than foreseen, being this risk compensated by the advantage of using the lifts at a flat rate.
4. The number and the type of lifts and the slopes available daily is decided by the Direction and the public is informed of this by advertising at the ticket office and through the website https://www.visitmonterosa.com/monterosa-ski/in-tempo-reale/
The number and the type of lifts and the slopes available daily may change even during the day – without any notice – for technical, service, safety or force majeure reasons such as, in example, electrical black out, strikes or, more in general, for reasons not depending on the will or the control of the Company.
The Company may close to public some lifts, slopes or areas for races or events and can also reserve some slopes to allow training for sport clubs.
For the above reasons, as well as for waitings at the lifts occurring for any reason, no reimbursement – even partial – is foreseen.
Only if lifts are partially or totally closed due to the wind, is offered a voucher to be used at Monterosa SpA and Monterosa 2000 SpA companies to owners of daily or several-day pass who ask for a reimbursement.
