We are heading back to Champoluc for our 5th anual visit. It must be OK if we keep on going back!
The skiing is great(but not very chalanging)
The snow is much the same as Zermat or Cervinia at a third of the price of Zermat and a bit more than half the price of Cervinia !
If you want apres ski, go somewhere else, but if you want well prepared pistes, fantastic scienery, great value mountain restaurants, and friendly locals, Champoluc has it all .
If you get up early you can drive to Cervinia and take a day pass for the Zermat ski domain, ski down into Switzerland for lunch (Try Max & Greti at Zum Zee, the best mountain restaurant in the world) ski one or two decents from Klein materhorn then Ski the 14 KM Ventina pist from the top of Klein Materhorn(Nearly 4,000M.) over plateau rosa ,in to Cervinia, you wont need any apres ski after that, just a good dinner and bed !! !
We stay each year at le Rocher Hotel, newly built(5 or 6 years ago), family run, just great and good value for money too.Ask for Lotta, or Giulio, the owners.
PS. The guy that complained about soft snow MUST know that it can happen anywhere once the weather warms up, it is NOT specific to champoluc.
