Its Alpine location means Gressoney is one of the most scenic resorts in the Aosta Valley with views of Mont Blanc, the Monte Rosa glacier, the Matterhorn and the Gran Paradiso. The Gressoney valley has several ski areas: Weissmatten, St. Jean, La Trinité and Stafal.
To the west of the Monte Rosa, Europe's second highest mountain, lies the Gressoney Valley, part of the Monte Rosa ski area of over 150kms of piste covering three valleys.
This area offers fantastic opportunities for the advanced skier extending from the awesome range of runs to the chance of excellent off piste skiing. The Monte Rosa area is now rated one of the best in Europe.
Gressoney and its neighbouring valley Ayas is ideal for polishing up skiing techniques on the long and varied runs amidst the spectacular scenery of the Monte Rosa mountain chain. From the Punta Jolanda chairlift the runs are interconnected and include a long black run down to Stafal.
At the top of the Punta Jolanda chair lift is some ideal terrain for the first few days on skis. The run down to the village is more demanding but can be conquered by the end of the week.
Please call us for more details on childcare in Gressoney.
Plenty of good freeriding to be had here, especially if the opportunity of Heli-boarding is exploited. There is some perfect terrain for beginners, especially the slope next to the Jolanda chair.
Informal and relaxed, Gressoney’s night life revolves around the local bars and cafes.
