Why choose Champoluc for your next ski holiday:

  • High level resort with most skiing above 2,000 metres
  • Stunning scenery
  • Just 90 minutes transfer from Turin Airport
  • Over 200 kms of pistes across the Monterosa ski area
  • Family-friendly resort, with our own British ski school



Lunches included…

At a time when currency exchange rates are so volatile, it is reassuring that a Ski 2 holiday includes so many of the items that you would normally purchase in resort. This alleviates the currency gamble and allows you to relax in Champoluc knowing that you have already paid for your lift pass and your lunches!

Our lunch voucher system means that all of our guests receive a voucher for each day that they are skiing. These vouchers are redeemable at a good selection of piste-side restaurants across the Monterosa ski area.

Choose which restaurants you would like to eat at and then choose from a selection of dishes from the menu which might include a pizza, bowl of pasta, or panini with choice of fillings. Vouchers includes a drink – glass of wine, soft drink or a beer.

Whilst some of our first-time clients have reservations about a system which might limit where they can eat, in reality most of our guests love the restaurants that we have chosen to work with, are welcomed as Ski 2 guests and enjoy the selection of dishes available in return for their voucher.

  • Use your vouchers at a good selection of mountain restaurants
  • Choose from a selection of dishes and drinks
  • Add a few Euros to ‘upgrade’ your meal to something a little more extravagant!
  • If you choose not to eat in one of our recommended restaurants on one day, then use your voucher in the village for an après-ski drink instead
  • Relax in resort in the knowledge that lunches are included in your holiday cost

One of our favourite lunch stops …

La Mandria, run by Max and his friendly team, is tucked beside La Mandria piste with far-reaching vies across the valley. Easily accessible by those of most ski abilities, it provides a warm and cosy stop for those snowy January days, as well as offering a perfect sun-trap on the roof terrace for later in the season.

Our voucher covers a selection of home-made pastas and a variety of sandwiches and paninis, plus a choice from an extensive range of drinks. For a couple of extra Euros you can add a delicious salad to accompany your pasta. La Mandria is well worth a visit during your next Champoluc holiday.

Gift Shopping in Champoluc – for Children

Are you coming to Champoluc on a special family ski holiday? Want to give your children something to remember the trip by or take home to their friends? Lucky for you there is plenty to interest the little ones around the town centre. Take a short walk (or ask Ski 2 for a minibus ride) about 5-10 minutes down the road from the Ski 2 office and you will find an array of toys and souvenirs.

Does your child like to snuggle up warm in slippers or a cosy blanket? Or perhaps they fancy a trinket for their bedroom or some fancy chocolate? They might like to check out L’Emporio, on the left on the way down the hill.

If you love to write postcards together, you’ll find a stationery shop a little further down on the same side, but watch out because it also sells lots of toys, children’s helmet covers, irresistible fluffy onesies and games galore.

Near the sometimes frozen tree (it thaws out towards the end of season) you might have fun perusing the selection at Livres et Musique, a book and music shop with the biggest selection of postcards in town, loads of kids’ picture books and other fun souvenirs.

Maybe, like I was, your child is a rock and gem aficionado? Ask in the office and we can direct you to a hidden gem (excuse the pun) of a shop. If you’re staying in La Rouja, rock delights are just a stone’s throw away!

Enjoy shopping with your little ones, but if you don’t find the right souvenirs this time, you could always go for an ice-cream at Dolce e Salato!

Thank you to all the staff at CartoleriaGiornaliGiocattoli di Fassin Roberto, L’Emporio and Livres et Musique for being so welcoming and allowing us to take pictures of your beautiful shops.
