Monterosa ski area gives you three valleys´ ski resorts at your disposal. First there is Ayas Valley. The ski resorts Champoluc-Frachey, Brusson and Antagnod form part of Ayas Valley. Each ski resort has its special feature. Champoluc-Frachey is particularly interesting for advanced skiers as there are about 50 kilometers of red slopes. Brusson is well-known for its international biathlon and cross-country skiing competitions, whereas Antagnod distinguishes itself from the other ski resorts with its highly specialized friendliness towards families and kids. At the eastern edge of the Monterosa region lies Valsesia Valley. Its ski region Alagna is a true jewel of freeriding and ski routes. As soon as you´ve reached Passo Salati at an altitude of 2971 meters you´ll have plenty of descents off the pistes. For experts it truly is the El Dorado of freeriding. The third valley is situated between Valsesia and Ayas Valley: the Gressoney Valley. There are two ski resorts in Gressoney Valley, Gressoney-St-Jean and Gressoney-La-Trinité. The most remarkable feature about Gressoney-La-Trinité is its interconnection to the other valleys. From here you can take various descents to the ski resorts of Champoluc-Frachey and Alagna. Gressoney-St-Jean is a little away from the region´s ski resorts. Nevertheless, this is not a disadvantage. This ski resort is more tranquil than the others, a perfect condition for beginners and cross-country skiers. But even experts will find their way to Gressoney-St-Jean. Everybody wants to try out the famous ski world cup slope Leonardo David.
