Without a doubt, Champoluc is the most popular resort in the hidden gem that is the Monterosa ski area in Italy. This is a haven for those who are looking to take their skiing and snowboarding off the beaten path in an authentic Italian setting. There’s a good range of shops, bars and patisseries to enjoy as well as the Monterosa spa located at the top end of town next to the woodland park, perfect if you need a day’s rest and fancy a bit of pampering.
Skiing and snowboarding in Champoluc
The ski area continues to surprise even the most competent skiers and boarders every year for many reasons. Firstly, not only are the pistes extremely well maintained but majority of the season they feel empty compared to the busy slopes in neighbouring countries.
You have three extensive ski areas which are covered with one lift pass; Champoluc, Gressoney and Alagna which are linked by a modern lift system throughout the valleys.
The majority of the slopes are aimed towards intermediate and advanced skiers but the real star of the show is the mass of off-piste areas. True powder hunters will want to head towards the Punta Indren lift and hit up the un-pisted terrain, just make sure you have the correct equipment as it’s not for the faint hearted.
Prebookable ski guiding
Enjoy a stress-free tour of the local ski area and get your bearings on the first morning day of your holiday with a local qualified guide. Get insight into the best runs and places to ski on the mountain as well as some useful pointers along the way to improve technique.
