In the morning we make use of the Cervinia lift system to find ski legs and get warmed up. We take advantage of the excellent off-piste opportunities within the upper cirque of the Cervinia area. Later in the day we will make a 2200 m descent from the highest point of the Cervinia lift system and ski the whole length of the Val di Verra down to Saint-Jacques in Champoluc where we are warmly welcomed by our friends at the Ferraro Hut. The Polenta here is widely acknowledged!

Day Three 

Today we’re going to cross the three valleys Champoluc, Gressoney and Alagna, on piste if you prefer or off the marked slopes. There is a wide variety of untracked skiing to be done on vast terrain at all altitudes, depending on the weather and the snow conditions, either up on the glaciers and high snow fields or down below tree-line. The Monterosa ski area or 'Freeride Paradise' is world famous for its off-piste with classical trees, steep couloirs and mellow meadows, it has terrain for everyone! Descents may include the Olen Valley, Salza Valley. The thrilling lineage from Punta Indren 3275 m, the highest point that can be reached using the Monterosa cable cars, is usually one of the highlights of the ski-safari. 

We spend the night in the particular Oreste Hütte (2530 m) nestled at the bottom of the Indren Valley. This mountain hut is famous for its artisan beers, culinary hospitality and yoga classes!

Alagna

Day Four

Home-made breakfast with a view before you ski down to Alagna, the small UNESCO-listed Walser village at the foot of the huge south side of the Monterosa. What about a coffee or a spritz at classic Caffé delle Guide in the centre of Alagna before heading back to the airport?
