The Monte Rosa massif, which extends between Italy and Switzerland, for about 25 km of height that it even exceeds the 4000 meters at some places, is home to one of the most beautiful and equipped ski resorts for skiing in Europe: the Monterosa Ski.
Monterosa, one of the largest massifs of the Alps, second to Mont Blanc in height, takes its name from the “rouése” that, in the local dialect, patois, means glacier. With its towering peaks (the largest, called Dufour, reaches 4637 meters) and its deep valleys, it is a really impressive natural spectacle. It offers breathtaking views, in summer, when it attracts thousands of hikers, and in winter, when it becomes an ideal skiing destination for all winter sports lovers.
The Monterosa Ski area
The Monterosa Ski area is the perfect setting for ski lovers. A structure that has been alive for 30 years old and has advanced instruments, that is able to give you a first level experience.
In particular, it includes seven alpine resorts, located between Val D'Aosta and Piedmont: Champoluc, Antagnod, Brusson, Gressoney-La-Trinité, Champorcher, Gressoney-Saint-Jean and Alagna. These are located on four valleys suited to skiing, which can be accessed via a location ticket or through the area ski pass.
Skiing on Monte Rosa means living a fun and rewarding experience: this is the reason why there are 91 available tracks in total, which are distinguished by color according to the degree of difficulty: 27 simple (blue), 52 more challenging (red) and 12 for expert skiers (black).
Discovering the Monte Rosa area
All of the Monte Rosa areas are full of natural attractions and sports. Among the main ones, there’s the international track of Leonardo David Special, a black track near Gressoney-Saint-Jean, which also allows you to ski in the evening, from 20 to 22.30. Or, for the freestylers, the "The Hig Five Park", a snow park suitable for beginners and experts, where you can learn how to do stunts safely.
For the younger ones, on the other hand, there is a Baby Snow Park in almost every location: these facilities are ideal to allow children to approach the snow and winter sports by having fun and at affordable costs.
