Gressoney ski & snowboard holidays take you to the Monterosa ski area in Italy. Located in the Aosta Valley at over sixteen hundred metres, it offers the most stunning landscape with views of the magnificent Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa. The resort has two centres, Stafel and La Trinite, each with their own facilities. The Monterosa ski area is spread across three linked valleys that give one hundred and eighty kilometres of pistes. The variety of runs suit all levels of ability in both skiing and boarding. With lifts to over three and a half thousand metres and the presence of a glacier means that the resort has a good snow record. In addition, there are four hundred snow cannons covering lower level runs. Gressoney is considered to be one of the best ski & board resorts in Italy and is popular with all age groups.
Gressoney ski & board holidays have wide appeal. Those who are new to the sport can learn the basics on the nursery slopes in both Stafal and La Trinite. Once they have mastered these techniques they can put them into practice on the gentle blue Castore run. Intermediates have a wide choice of reds some of which are quite testing. Try the pistes in the Ayas Valley for long cruising runs. Advanced skiers & boarders can find challenging black runs as well as great off piste sking. Remember, it is essential to take a mountain guide if you should choose this option. The resort has a good reputation for boarding with wide pistes and a snow park.
As you'd expect in an Italian resort, Gressoney hotels and apartments offer high standards of accommodation and warm and friendly service. Restaurants both on and off the mountains serve a good variety of menu. Being in Italy, the ever favourite pasta and pizza are a dominant feature on menus. As well as being tasty, they are inexpensive which appeals to those on a tight budget. Nightlife is fairly low key with a few bars and cafes. Recreational facilities include ice skating, snow-shoeing and tobogganing.
