A most excellent Ski Area Home Of some the Fastest Straight Line skiers in the world 254 kph aprox so not time for relaxing here ! if you can pass them they may shout you a beer !
But Seriously what do you want from your skiing ... Yes no waiting at lifts long runs Challenging terrain then some just cruising well Monterosa and Champoluc and Frachey with their new lifts an awesome Finicular Just over two mins to the bottom of the chair ..... hardly time to catch your breath . From Champoluc the Gondalas and chair take to to the top before you have hardly had time to take in the Awesome Vista that surrounds you ! With fresh snow , you have a choice of some interesting off trail runs and or trail run back to base . 2700m down to 1500m or drop over the back for a breath taking run to the next mid station where you can then refuel and take a break .... or continue on to one of the other two valleys that make up this just absolutely wonderful ski area ! Just a warning do not forget that pre season prep as your legs may turn to jelly .
Then there's the food which is out of this world local specialties which are very tasty and filling ... The Mountain folk are all very Welcoming , there is also a range very good comfortable modern hotels or old world converted barns into quaint but very very comfortable . Additionally the oppertunity for Heli Skiing also temps those who want that extra adrenlin rush .... ...
