Alagna

Ski resorts in Italy
Alagna belong to Monterosa Ski.

Alagna is part of the Monterosa Ski system, which many know as Freeriders' Paradise. The name obviously has marketing purposes, but there is a reason why it has also been taken on by the freeriding visitors. Alagna is located at an altitude of almost 4000 feet, and the highest point of the system is close to 10,800 feet. In between, there are many high altitude areas to choose from which provide all types of terrain that one can expect to find in the Alps, and some types of terrain that do not usually appear in the Alps. As if this was not enough, there are several 10,000 foot peaks to go to in the area for those who like to go off on their own. It is simply a ski paradise for all freeriders.

The best thing about it is that this is also in Italy, a country known for its well-maintained, wide and relatively empty slopes. Of course, this also applies to Alagna, which makes this place an obvious choice even for people who may not be attracted to the bold claim that is their slogan.

Great city if you like small scale. A place for after skiing, a few restaurants that deliver. The ride is great when there is snow, especially the Alagnaside where there is unlimited space. Last seasons have been snowy when other places in the vicinity had good conditions.
Sergio's B & B Montagna Di Luce provided both for accommodation and food!

Alagna is one of the Alps's best freeriding areas, many nice high peaks and unspoilt yachts that are reached for a while on skins. The village is also a gem, with soft lovely après ski, shady wine bars and authentic Italian restaurants. A place for those who are in the Alps for skiing.

As the slogan sounds: Freeride Paradise

Alagna is probably one of the world's best off-pistons, and at very snow, it's really unlimited, unfamiliar with everything from the off-piste interested ski enthusiast to the extreme skier. Fantastic simply!

The resort belongs to the Monterosa masy system, and Gressoney and Chamopluc are easy to get to.

Have been there when there's not been much snow too, wide, well-prepared and never boring slopes that you can burn crazy on and one day move thousands of altitudes up and down.

For a week's stay at the resort, you can almost guarantee a good google burn, but you can recomend that on sunny days the beautiful burns the road from the top all the way down to the village as they often get a bit sour in the afternoon.

Too bad to share this amazing and relatively unknown gem but DO IT!

Thought it was a fun place to go. Had not found pillows for a long time when I was there but still it was possible to find a pillow if you went a little. The slopes were beautiful and it was very sunny. Because I do not know what it's like when there is a lot of snow and because it's terribly hard to go to the big cabin, no more than 4 will be alienated.

Alagna is like an Altar's diamond. However, it has become increasingly ground to fit rich Milanese in recent years. The "livestock lifts" and the glorious dieseling tree trunk to Punta Indren are unfortunately a mere memory. Some of the Alps' best rivers now lie a few hours on hides and require good locomotion. Congratulations to those who like to go for a walk. Earn your turns. Alagna has also become better for beginners and average riders because it is combined with Gressoney through the new super cabin that goes to Passo Salati. A new pist leads back to Alagna. If you are wild, you choose to drop under Stolemberg to go to Balma, but be prepared for up to 4 hours of hiking back to Alagna. Only when there is plenty of snow. Go somewhere in the middle of January. Other tips are to try trekking in Val de Otro and Val Vogna. Eat in San Antonio. Book a Saturday evening dinner in Dosso on Fum Diss and buy some cheeses on the market in Varallo. And drink at least three rovinati at Cafe del Centro. Viva Italia, Viva Alagna

Alagna - Freeride Paradise

Meet a dump so you can go untouched for a week without stopping yourself too much. endless possibilities exist. But if you want to go out there is not much to cry for: P But who wants it?

Large system with little lifts = good

Charming is the word that I think best describes Alagna.
In the Alagnadelle of Monterosa Ski, the slopes are not so many but the more surfaces for offpiste, especially from the top of Punta Indren.

There are several cozy Rifugios and restaurants around the system, a simple espresso is about 1 euro.

Week 9 2007 offered both sun, wind and snow.
At the beginning of the week when it was sunny and did not snow for a while, you could find nice wind-driven snow that lay in the sinks. At the end of the week a lot of pillows came to pass and left for everyone.

The wind made the gondola from the Gressoneys side up to Passo Salati, where Gresonneys and Alagnas lift systems meet, were mostly closed. This meant that some had to go to a pistol scoop to avoid getting caught in Gressoney and having to get a taxi from Gressoney to get back to Alagna. Taxiresan learn about 200 euros.

Finally, I recommend anyone who goes to Alagna to hire a guide to find good scratches.

Have been to the Alps for the first time and then I lived in Champoluc, but also went skiing in Gressoney and Alagna.

The backs of the Alps are absolutely wonderful compared to here in Sweden. There are long slopes, narrow slopes and naturally dingy. It is a challenge to get down these slopes.
Here the legs ache after several miles of skiing day after day. It's wonderful simply.

These three valleys are not so badly exploited yet, but they still have their charm and it is not crowded in the slopes. The longest lift queue I was in the meantime was about 3 minutes long.

Absolutely Cannon Place!

But new lift in place that is far more reliable than the old top lifts, Alagna has the chance to live a little while waiting for the "big" change; new lift up to 3700 m.

After that, it's only a matter of time before the charm disappears too good :)

Edit offpist and even better for those who can knat a bit. A restaurant that is not to be missed is Fum Diss, which is under the cab lane up the system. More "home-at" feel, look for!

A gem that will disappear ... I'm so grateful that you gotta be there before civilization takes over.

But when I shared a lift with an employee, he said; Despite the upgrades of the lift system, we will keep the Alanga spirit, Freeride Paradise!

So maybe there is hope ....
