Resort Information

Choose a school ski trip to Monterosa and give your students the unforgettable experience of skiing Western Europe’s second highest mountain. Straddling the border between Switzerland and Italy, the views from the resorts’ restaurant terraces are worth the trip alone. The three main resorts in the area – Champoluc, Gressoney and Alagne – sit in each of the three valleys at the foot of the mountain. All three are ‘typical’ rustic Italian alpine villages, offering warm welcomes, great food and safe bases from which to explore this magnificent mountain.

Skiing Information

Monterosa, one of the world’s largest ski areas, has long been on the radar of those in the know and local Italians, but is still relatively unknown among the mass market. So, during the week, your students can enjoy learning to ski on uncrowded slopes. Snow is very reliable and the piste grooming is exceptional. The resort offers lovely long runs almost as standard. Best for intermediates, there are also some great nursery runs here for beginners and some challenging blacks for the experts, as well as a snowpark, and it’s this variety that makes it perfect for a school ski trip to Italy.

I love seeing all the students and teachers out enjoying their trip making life long memories together! – Abigail Winch Ski Tours Operations Manager

Don't take our word for it …

Very good resort and hotel. One of the main advantages of the hotel was its location which allowed doorstep skiing. As a whole, the resort is very good as it accommodates for all abilities and the instructors were excellent too. I would definitely take a school group back to the hotel and resort. — Cotham School
