Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will shut down on July 13, 2020. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Overview

Ice is the most interesting attraction of this valley situated at the foot of Monviso, where the Occitane culture is still alive today. The climate, exposure and high altitude maintain the falls and couloirs of the ice of the lateral gorges in safe conditions, making it possible to climb them until spring. For cross-country skiing, the valley offers tracks in the basin of Casteldelfino, in the locality of Becetto in Sampeyre and near the Nordic Ski Centre of the Sanctuary of Valmala, on the watershed between the Maira and Varaita valleys. Other high altitude ski runs are the “Daniele Roux” track in Chianale (1797 m) and that of Melezé in the Bellino Gorge (1800 m). The downhill skiing areas are located in Sampeyre and Pontechianale and both have artificial snow systems. Sampeyre offers more technical slopes, while Pontechianale is particularly suitable for beginners.
