Welcome to the land of the Walser.
The Gressoney valley, unique in its kind, preserves intact the spirit, uses, customs and traditions of these ancient inhabitants of the Alps who between the XI and XIII century settled here from nearby Valais and who still live in perfect symbiosis with the mountain. The Walser villages – different and easily reachable with their unmistakable architecture of the houses built in wood and stone, are a living testimony of the indissoluble relationship of love and respect between this population and Monte Rosa. The largest mountain range in the Alps and the second largest in height (4,634), it is the ideal destination for all lovers of active holidays.
The Gressoney valley offers several opportunities:
In summer: a great panorama of outdoor activities, from walks in the woods to discover the Walser, to naturalistic hiking, to guided excursions on the glacier to coveted destinations such as the highest refuge in Europe, the Capanna Regina Margherita at 4,554 meters . But also golf tournaments, climbing, mountain biking and E biking, horseback riding, tennis schools and international
trail running events.
In winter: as the central hub of the Monterosa Ski area that connects the Champoluc and Alagna valleys, Gressoney offers over 100 km of ski slopes, modern and fast lifts that go back up to 3,300m in Punta Indren, slopes for all levels and panoramic, countless possible tracks for off-piste and heliskiing, highly professional Alpine Guides and ski mountaineering tracks. Anyone can enjoy the uniqueness of its views even with snowshoes or on the cross-country trails, on which it is not difficult to come across the numerous local Nordic ski champions.
The pride of the resort is the Weissmatten lift with the Leonardo David slope, approved for world cup competitions and with a lighting system for skiing even in the evening. Slopes for both beginners and very experienced skiers.
The area also offers a baby snow park for the enjoyment of young and old with two treadmills, an inflatable castle, foam games, inflatable boats, snowbikes and a carousel for the little ones.
Finally, in every season, for lovers of slow holidays, Gressoney can be appreciated for its 0 km food and wine, for the rich production of local crafts, for well-being, for social events, for dinners at high altitude and again for the calendar of music, culture, sports and entertainment events suitable for all ages.
