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.

Monterosa Ski kicks-off the ski season 2018/2019 two weeks ahead of schedule with an extraordinary opening during the two remaining weekends of November.

Thanks to the abundant snowfall during autumn, some serious snow-making and a skiable glacier, Monterosa ski will keep open Saturday and Sunday 17th and 18th November and also the following 24-25 November. During these four days of early-sason-skiing the lifts will be running from Staffal in Gressoney to the Indren glacier (3.275 m) allowing access to the Freeride area. Further it will be possible to ski on the Salati, Salati 1 and Salati Variante slopes on the Gressoney side and on the Cimalegna and Bodwitch slopes in Valsesia. Daily skipasses are offerd at € 28,00 then including access to Monterosa Freeride Paradise.

The skimo track dedicated to ski touring that leads from Gabiet to Passo dei Salati will complement the weekend offer.

From 30th November the entire carousel Champoluc-Gressoney-Alagna will keep open non-stop.
