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 snow just keeps coming and coming here in Champoluc today! I have never seen so much snow falling at once. The whole valley is a snow caos. Everyone is outside digging out their cars stuck under a huge pile of snow. And it is great!


While most people stay inside today, all of us from TheAlps went on a litel adventur out in the snow. Most of the slopes were closed today, but we manege to find a lift to take us up into the snow clouds! It was one of the most fun rides I ever had! There was so much snow it felt like I was sufing down the mountain. The snow was so deep in some places that some of us got stuck and we had to digg ourselves out!

Now it really feels like we are in a winter wonderland. The snow is still faling and we hope it never ends! Okej… maybee after the season’s end.
