After reading 'anonymous' and the 40+ visitors to Champoluc it is a pity that he has decided that you can't ski after mid-day because of the slushy conditions. I have skied Champoluc/Gressoney/Alagna many times and the conditions of the snow, as in any other resort in the world, depends on the prevailing temputure. In other words, yes, it can be slushy in Champolus, or Val d'Isere, Vail, etc. but during the winter months that is fairly rare. The other point to remember is that there isn't much night life in Champoluc, just a few quiet bars and restaurants and for regular users of this area I hope that it remains this way. People ski the Monterosa area for the wonderful scenery, lack of queues and the reasonable prices.
