Marta's Monterosa Blog

I am passionate about the Alps. They are my heart's home and the place where I would like to spend the last day of my life. I have been a tourist in the village of Champoluc in the Italian Monterosa for all my life and worked as a tourist operator in this area since more than 15 years.

I believe in respect for the special environment of this place that you can find only here. We all gain by enjoying its beauty, while trying to make a minimum impact at the same time. Leave it for our children in the future!

I believe in respect for people who live here with their traditions and culture, language, and work, their genuine products and delicious wines. They open their homes for us, tourists and meet us as their guests, if we are able to open our hearts for them. I have a friend who is a hotel owner and he says that when stressed people from the city come to his place, he tells them to sit down and take a drink before they even begin to worry if they have a room. Perhaps, we can bring a little of their kindness and calmness with us on our way back to the city.

My philosophy is to give back a little of what the mountains and the people from this place have given to me and to my family through my work, to communicate my philosophy and my passion to those who follow me on the blog, and in my trips as a tour operator.

If you would like to visit Champoluc, Gressoney, Alagna or other villages in the Aosta Valley, trek or ski in the Monterosa, discover Sardinia or other places we offer, contact us.

The Little S.t Bernard pass opens 31st May

It is always an emotional event, the re-opening of the Little St. Bernard Pass, between Italy and France, after a long and harsh winter. This year the opening is scheduled to 31st of May, weather permitting. It is in fact, not unusual, that the opening is postponed due to too much snow, and the snow clearance, on both sides, is at the moment working hard to secure the viability.

Home is best

The first days of this season came very late for me, much because I have become a GRANDMOTHER! How can you leave your daughter and her newborn baby girl alone in Sweden, and just go to ski? Not possible for my Italian heart!

Umbria – Italiens hjärta

Mitt i landet, utan kontakt med havet, ligger en av Italiens 20 regioner: Umbrien. Den har alltid varit italienarna kär, förknippad med medeltida kloster, vacker vild natur, men också vinodlingar, god mat och gudomlig olivolja. Jag åkte ofta hit med min familj när jag var barn.

Solo Ragazze - Vandring i Champoluc For Ladies Only

Jag kommer fram till Champoluc vid middagstid och möts av ett skådespel av färger. Bergen solar fortfarande sina toppar. Det kommer att bli de finaste dagarna under hela sommaren, 25 grader och glasklar luft.

Into the woods

The Monterosa-ski area connects three different valleys: Ayas, where you find Champoluc, Lys, which is the name of the river crossing Gressoney, and Valsesia, with its famous freeride paradise Alagna.
