Ski Holidays in Gressoney

Gressoney is one of the villages that makes up the Monterosa Ski area, which also includes Champoluc and Alagna. This ski area has long been a favourite of Ski Lines, we first skied here over 16 years ago, and have been back several times since. It’s a ski area that has been neglected by the British skier, we can never understand why. This is all set to change as a couple of the mainstream tour operators added Gressoney, to their ski programme a few years ago.

The village is tiny, narrow cobbled streets, a church, lots of wooden buildings and a handful of ski chalets and hotels. Nightlife is quiet, which is perhaps why Gressoney has become so popular with families.

Gressoney is set in the heart of the ski area, its ski range is between 1200m to an impressive 3275m. The village of Gressoney is located at 1640m. The skiing suits all levels, beginner’s slopes are in the village and serviced by magic carpets with some excellent long blue runs to progress to. For intermediate and advanced skiers looking to ski off-piste, you won’t be disappointed. The heli-skiing here is some of the best in Europe and you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy it. On the slopes, the options for intermediate skiers are good too, with excellent skiing on both sides of the ski area. Advanced skiers will find the black runs easy, but the off-piste skiing will be the main attraction for you, as there is loads of it.

Most of the lifts are fast, the odd exception, some slower lifts below the treeline.
