Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Dufour is a great little family-run hotel. There’s only 32 rooms so you really do feel like you’re at home when you stay here. It’s a got a charming location that’s close to the village and, more importantly, gives you easy access to the slopes. The Punta Jolanda lift is only 50 metres away and the ski rental shop is right next door.

When you’ve had your fill of skiing for the day, you can look forward to heading back to the hotel. There’s a cosy lounge with a fireplace where you can warm up with a drink. Personally, we love heading for the top floor wellness area and giving our legs a break in the sauna and whirlpool. Dinner is always something to look forward to with lovely local specialties served each night. After, grab another drink at the bar or head to the games room for quick game of pool.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins from Turin airport.

Gressoney

Nestled in the centre of the Monterosa ski area, one of the largest and unspoilt ski areas in Italy, you will find the beautiful resort of Gressoney. If you are looking for a traditional village with cobbled streets, full of history dating to World War 2 and a ski area known for good challenging pistes, massive off-piste potential and 28 peaks over 4000 metres, this is where you want to be.

Dubbed by many as Europe’s best kept secret, the Monterosa ski area is simply stunning. The pistes are immaculate, probably something to do with the fact they are not overcrowded and majority of the people who do head here are at a good level of skiing. Around Gressoney you can enjoy some woodland skiing before heading further afield either towards Colle Bettaforca and over the peak towards Champoluc, the largest of the 7 towns in the area. More experienced skiers and boarders will love the slopes over towards Alagna, specifically those looking for powder can head up the Punta Indren lift which takes enthusiasts to an area dedicated to off-piste. We recommend a guide and ensuring you have the right equipment for the job.

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. Après in Gressoney is low key but you will find some lovely bars and cafes to njoy a drink after a great day out on the mountain. 

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.
