Gressoney, Italy

Team Slava Monterosa Off-Piste Adventure

The Monte Rosa massif straddles the Swiss, Italian border above Zermatt and constitutes the end of the Western Alps. There are more than 38 peaks above 4000m, so an impressive sight from any direction, and it is no surprise that the Monte Rosa area is a ski-mountaineering hotspot. The area is also home to some of the wildest glaciers in the Alps and the vertical descent on skis from some of the peaks is huge, which makes this area popular with ski tourers. The peaks aren't the only draw, however, with resorts like Zermatt, Cervinia, Gressoney and Alagna nestled below the peaks, all of which are big hits with off-piste skiers.

The Italian resort of Gressoney is part of the Monte Rosa ski region and is an emerging resort with a reputation for some superb off-piste skiing.  Huge, deserted off-piste snowfields and scenic, wooded descents are all set in impressive scenery. The area has some great heli-skiing opportunities too.

The resort itself is very small and split between the main village of Gressoney St Jean and Gressoney La Trinite, which is where the main lifts are found. Nightlife in the area centres around a handful of restaurants and the hotel bars.
