Adventure skiing in Champoluc and the Monterosa ski area

The Monterosa valley is a thrill-seekers paradise when it comes to adventure skiing.

A hidden gem among the heart of the alps, Monterosa has long been a favourite for skiers from all over the world who come for the challenging off-piste terrain and the chance to ski the descents of 2,500 metres. The recently improved lift system has made access to the off-piste even easier and the trickier parts can be accessed by helicopter for a real taste of adventure. The stunning scenery and vast range of routes really does make Champoluc and Monterosa an ideal place for adventure and free-ride skiing.

Good quality mountain Refuge accommodation is abundant in the Monterosa, making it a perfect location for Ski Touring.  They make the most of the high-altitude skiing conditions with touring weeks in April, suitable for less and more experienced ski tourers.

Monterosa offers some of the most challenging off-piste and back country skiing in Europe, and in this vast arena there are slopes perfect for introducing you to off piste and whole mountain skiing.
