  Monterosa Ski, Aosta, Italy


  July 5, 2016

North of Turin and northeast of Aosta, the Champoluc ski domaine is well known with local freeriders for its massive, legal off-piste snowboarding. The Champoluc ski domaine is known as the highest ski area in the Alps. When heading off-piste, you'll want to start by hiring a guide -- ask them about Col d'Olen. In addition to the lift-accessed off-piste, there are heli-ski opportunties.

The Champoluc ski domain is part of the greater Monterosa Ski Consortium that interconnects four valleys with 7 resort villages. The valleys include Ayas Valley, Champorcher Valley, Gressoney Valley and Valsesia Valley. The resort villages include Alagna, Antagnod, Brusson, Champoluc, Champorcher, Gressoney-La-Trinite and Gressoney-Saint-Jean. There is one ski pass that provides access to a total of 88 pistes totalling 180km served by 32 lifts.

After a long morning of shredding, grab lunch on-mountain at Rifugio Guglielmina.

For apres ski action, check out Atelher Gourmand. For nightlife, you can check out Pachamama.

Overall, Champoluc is the 22nd most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 43 snowboarding resorts in Italy. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Champoluc including Gressoney-La-Trinite, Alagna-Valsesia and Alpe di Mera.
