Ski holidays in Gressoney

Warm, traditional Italian hospitality and great skiing, on & off-piste

The Monterosa ski area is renowned as one of the largest skiing areas in Italy, spread across the three valleys of Gressoney, Champoluc and Alagna. There’s plenty to challenge boarders and skiers alike, with a great selection of high-altitude skiing, some testing off-piste descents and the glacier area with spectacular scenery. With everything from skiing in the trees to wide-open glades, the variety of skiing is ideal for intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders. Along with the stunning backdrop of the Monterosa mountains, all this makes Gressoney one of the best ski resorts in Italy.Gressoney is split into two areas - Stafal and La Trinité - each with its own centre and village life. There’s excellent cross-country skiing in both villages, with more than 20 miles of tracks. Ski holidays in Gressoney offer informal, easy going après-ski based around local bars and cafes. La-Trinité has some delightful cobbled streets lined with attractive chalets.  

Inghams operate a telephone rep service in Gressoney. For a smoother in resort experience, we recommend pre-booking the following before you travel; Lift passes, ski equipment hire and/or tuition.

Gressoney for beginner skiers

There is limited skiing for beginners in and around Gressoney as you need to head to Staffal in order to find some appropriate slopes to practice on. You will find a number of blue runs spread out around the ski area but predominately the Monterosa ski area is a haven for intermediate skiers. 

Gressoney for intermediate skiers

Monterosa is perfect for the intermediate skier and the valley of Ayas with its diverse runs is ideal for testing and working on skiing techniques whilst soaking up the amazing scenery of the Monterosa mountains. Another area ideal for intermediate skiers is at the the top of the Punta Jolanda lift where skiers will find red runs to their hearts content. 

Gressoney for advanced skiers

If you are a confident intermediate or an advanced skier, there a number of black runs to try across the area but given the right conditions, off-piste is abundant throughout the Monterosa ski area, with massive potential for those wanting to go off the beaten track and play in the powder.

For those seeking an adventure, there is heli-skiing available in the resort which can be booked directly with the appropriate company. For more information, please speak to the local tourist information centre who will be able to assist. 

Gressoney for snowboarders

Snowboarders have a dedicated park and access to all the slopes as well as the vast range of off-piste for the more adventurous free riders.
