Skiing in Champoluc
Champoluc has a classic ski resort ambience, full of Italian charm and is the largest resort in the Monterosa region, a huge ski area also known as Italy's very own 'Three Valleys'. Surrounded by wooded terrain and based at one end of the Monte Rosa ski area - with Gressoney in the central valley and Alagna on the far side - Champoluc boasts spectacular views of the region's dramatic glaciers and peaks.Those based here have access to the whole Monterosa circuit, renowned in particular for its uncrowded slopes and fabulous off-piste terrain. Champoluc is the best choice in the Monterosa area for beginner skiers, with easy-to-reach beginners' slopes at Frachey and Crest, but the skiing is also a paradise for intermediates and experts. Monterosa offers a huge ski area with lots of red runs, some fantastic and suitably challenging black runs and amazing off-piste opportunities, while snowboarders will love the free-riding across all three valleys. There are also plenty of good mountain restaurants for lunch in the sunshine or a quick fuel stop.
Interski clients will access the Champoluc ski area via the funicular at Frachey - a short rail lift - which arrives just a few yards from our fully equipped ski hire and storage, right on the slopes. From here, there is a beginner area directly in front of the ski hire as well as access to the higher pistes of Champoluc and the whole of the Monterosa area!
Champoluc itself is a lovely village with several craft and ski shops, some great pizzerias and good restaurants serving delicious Italian classics. Groups will enjoy a night out in one of the local pizzerias through the week and après-ski can also include a visit to the large and modern ice rink in town!
