Gressoney, Italy

Gressoney is included in the Monterosa Ski area and located in north-western Italy. Gressoney is located at the foot of Monte Rosa at 1,644 meters. Winding roads take you from the highway far down in the valley up to the mountains. Signs en route remind you that you are on mountain roads and that you should equip your car with snow chains.

Gressoney is closely connected to Alagna and Champoluc, over the mountains only and not by road. Together, they form Monterosa Ski, which spreads across the valleys of Ayas, Lys and Sesia.

You primarily come here for off-pist skiing but there are some slopes for children and beginners too. The area has 35 lifts and 200 kilometers of pistes. The ski area is varied and challenging and once you have arrived here you donít really want to go back home. When you do, though, prepare to be tanned as the areas mostly faces the south and the weather is often good and sunny.
