Awarded as on of "The Top 7 Ski Resorts in Europe Right Now" from National Geographic in December 2016, Alagna includes 6,500 feet of vertical slope and features three lifts, which connect it to two additional valleys and the ski areas of Champoluc and Gressoney. Together, the three areas form the Monterosa Ski Area and access 111 miles of inbounds runs. But you don’t come to Alagna only to ski inbounds. You come to ski lines like the Malfatta and Vitoria couloirs, and the six-mile-long La Balma, which winds down a glacier and past ancient farming hamlets. You come to ski huge off-piste bowls and heli-ski untouched gems like the Col du Lys, Colle Ippolita, and the Valley of the Black Horse. Off the mountain, Alagna is quite basic—a smattering of ancient houses, hotels, and family-run restaurants. So, if it’s a rowdy après scene or five-star amenities you’re after, Alagna isn’t for you. But, if you’re looking for some of the best skiing—and food & drink—of your life, and to soak in the mountains and the culture of a place that hasn’t changed in hundreds of years, Alagna is your spot.
