A chain of mountains runs for twenty-five kilometers and includes the Rosa Massif. At its foot stands the area of Monterosa Ski, a carousel of sports at high altitude, 180 km of ski links, located in the three valleys of d 'Ayas,Gressoney and Valsesia.
You can choose to spend a day going through the entire area with skis from Frachey and Champoluc in Valle d 'Ayas, cross Gressoney-La Trinité and reach Alagna Valsesia. You can also choose to live a more intimate collection of: Antagnod, Brusson and Gressoney-Saint-Jean where lift stations are conveniently accessible by local bus services.
The Monterosa Ski area is the ideal destination for those who want to spend a week doing freeride routes through unique and always different runs outside the box. From several possible points you can heliski from the Indren glacier on the slopes of Gressoney.
Fabulous landscapes, organization of the highest level, altitude range ranging from the 3000 meters of the Indren glacier to 1191 m. of the inhabited area of Alagna and that allow in all seasons to find the snow in excellent conditions. We add the charm of the real mountain at the foot of the legendary Monterosa 4000, with the town center where the Walser houses create a unique atmosphere of extraordinary beauty. If we combine all this with more than two meters of fresh snow that fell during the last week, NeveItalia could not but choose Alagna as the base location for the Freeride 2019/2020 test.
The most colorful tour of the winter season next weekend will move to Gressoney, Valle d'Aosta. The appointment is scheduled for the next weekend, March 16th and 17th.

Review of the beautiful black track named after a great promise of the Italian alpine skiing, skier Leonardo David Valle d'Aosta. The track Weissmatten Leonardo David is Gressonay Saint Jean, therefore not connected with the rest of the Monterosa Ski carousel, but it is a beautiful track, with two beautiful walls, illuminated in the final part and approved for international competitions.
The Monterosa ski area anticipates the start of the 2018/2019 winter season by two weeks. The plants will start on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 November, then on 24 and 25 November and from 30 November every day.
These days work is underway on the new 8-seater Leitner single-cabin cableway, with external ski-carrier connecting the village of Champoluc with the village of Crest from which the ski lifts depart to reach the Monterosa Ski area.
Last June, 50 sensors were installed on the Swiss side, at an altitude of 3692 meters, to monitor the stability of the Cervino rock that could change its conformation over time due to the global warming that is leading to the crumbling of the mountain.
On July 16th a meeting was held in Saint Vincent in which the future of the Col de Joux chairlift and the ski area was discussed, which next season is likely to remain closed due to the negative relationship between costs and benefits that it would bring the revision of the plant.
