The Monte Rosa Massif divides the Aosta Valley and Piemonte. It is the most extensive mountain in the Alps and second highest to Mont Blanc. Seven valleys spread from this massif including the Ayas and Gressoney (Lys) valleys providing its visitors with a huge range of possible descents and wildly differing conditions to choose from.
Access to Monte Rosa’s valleys has been made easier since the opening of the Alagna-Punta Indren cable car a few years ago. Skiers are now carried right up onto the glacier so they can reach the unique and amazing freeride runs. This connection also means that the resort is now linked to the resorts in Piemonte increasing the extent of the pistes to 180kms.
The numerous restaurants and refuges on the mountain are another reason to visit the valley.
