Champoluc - in Italy's 'Three Valleys'

The Monterosa ski area has a wide range of runs and is one of the largest ski area in Italy but isn't the most well-known. The ski area is known as Italy's Three Valleys which are all linked by a large network of pistes and lifts.

The key attraction of de Champoluc is the proximity to the skiing. The Crest gondola departs from just next to the Chalet Hotel, leading up to the beginners' area at the mid station and up to rising up to 2,7028m and leading to runs above Frachey and then by lift up to the Col Le Betteforca into the Gressoney Valley to Stafal, the Punta Indren and Alagna.

More British skiers are discovering the region 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.
