Champoluc - in Italy's 'Three Valleys'

The Monterosa ski area is one of the largest ski areas in Italy, covering a large network of pistes and lifts linking Italy's Three Valleys. Here, you'll feel like you're discovering something unspoilt every day as the pistes are so varied and generally uncrowded.

The key attraction of our accommodation, Hotel de Champoluc, is the proximity to the skiing with the Crest Gondola right next door. From here you can head up to the beginners' area at the mid station, rise up 2,7028m to the runs above Frachey and take an additional lift to Col Le Betteforca into the Gressoney Valley to Stafal, the Punta Indren and Alagna.

The area is becoming more popular with British skiers due to the range of skiing, but also the value for money on the slopes. The scenery is simply stunning and the pistes are long with many being tree-lined as well as great off-pistes and even heli-skiing available. As you would expect in Italy the mountain restaurants offer great food and places for lunch with prices much lower than in other ski areas of this size.

Group lessons are currently not available to pre-book for adults as the ski school does not have enough numbers to run the classes.

There is a Ski Guiding Option on the first morning in resort which is an excellent way to get to know the area with a qualified guide. Groups are for up to 12 adults and the cost is just £20 for 3 hours of guiding. You need to be an intermediate skier, confident of skiing on red runs. The guide is from the ski school and he or she will give up to date information on the best runs as well as giving any hints and tips on improving technique.  

Call our reservations team to book this.

We can also offer private lessons for adults with the ski school. Bookings are on request and are usually in the mornings. Prices depend on the number of people in the group and length of lesson. Skiers must be of similar levels to get the most benefit from of the tuition. Call reservations for a quote.

Levels of tuition:

  • Beginner = never skied before
  • Level 1 = advanced beginner; can control speed, snowplough and change direction on gentle slopes 
  • Level 2 = low intermediate, snowplough turns and start to ski parallel
  • Level 3 = Good intermediate, Parallel turns 
  • Advanced = Fully confident on all slopes, looking to improve technique

Please ensure you pre-book any tuition for high season dates early to avoid the ski schools being fully booked.
