Champoluc with Ski 2
The picturesque Italian resort of Champoluc sits close to the Swiss border, within the Valle d’Aosta – lovingly called The Heart of the Alps. With spectacular glacier views, the charming atmosphere and uncrowded slopes of Champoluc gives you an unforgettable skiing experience with over 100km of groomed piste on your doorstep.
Despite its acclaimed skiing and traditional character, the area of Monterosa along with the smaller Gressony and the demanding terrain of Alagna, is relatively undiscovered by British skiers. Stopping for lunch on the terrace or a quick hot chocolate at one of the superb mountain restaurants is accompanied by stunning panoramas, quiet runs and a relaxed atmosphere that truly sets Champoluc apart from other resorts.
Traditional and laid back, Champoluc continues to attract rave reviews from novice skiers to those that know skiing best. Dave Watts, Editor of Where to Ski and Snowboard has given it his stamp of approval time and time again and Gabriella Le Breton, journalist and accomplished skier, wrote for The Telegraph;
“Champoluc is a wonderful spot to make the most of the relaxed atmosphere in the Alps, with its naturally laid-back attitude, quiet slopes, fantastic restaurants (on and off the mountain) and countless sunny terraces.”
Even the most seasoned skiers can’t fail to be impressed with the unique terrain that the Monterosa area brings. Perfectly groomed pistes are a paradise for families and those looking to enjoy the leisurely pace of the area, while those looking for adventure will find challenging off-piste and heliskiing to satisfy even the toughest adrenaline junkie.
The British ski school is managed by Simon Brown, co-owner of Ski 2 who lives in Champoluc.
Ski 2 operates a voucher system for the mountain restaurants around Champoluc.
