Ski Holidays in Aosta Valley

Bordered by France and Switzerland, the Aosta Valley is surrounded by some of the highest peaks in Europe: Cervino (Matterhorn), Monte Rosa, Gran Paradiso and Mont Blanc. At the foothill of these iconic mountains are 20 resorts, over 800 kilometres of slopes, and 10 snow parks.

Professionals or beginners, there is something to discover for everyone in Aosta Valley, from the international resort of Cervinia, nestled between Italy and Switzerland, to the challenging resorts of Monterosa (Champoluc and Gressoney).

Extensive cross-country skiing is available throughout the Aosta Valley, offering a great way to connect with nature while taking in the fresh mountain air and beautiful alpine landscapes.

Beginners and intermediates will love the wide, cruising runs of Cervinia. The resort holds the best snow record in Italy and has access to the highest lifts in Europe. The ski area is linked with Valtournenche and Zermatt in Switzerland so you can enjoy inter-country skiing.

Intermediate and advanced skiers are well catered for in Gressoney with a diverse range of runs through the valley of Ayas. The area is ideal for working on your ski techniques whilst soaking up the amazing scenery.

Off-piste skiers can't beat the untouched powder of Champoluc. There are a variety of off-piste trails, both marked and unmarked. The resort is snow-sure and is relatively empty during the week. In bad weather, head to the Mandria forest area about Frachey for powder.
