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.

Les Deux Alpes is a fantastic resort for school groups. One of the best towns for après-ski activities. The slopes have enough variation for all levels of skiing and having returned here for the 2nd time, I can safely say it's one of our favourites. The hotel was easy walking distance. The resort was very quiet when we were there, never once queuing for a lift/cable car. The instruction from the ski school was fantastic and our students progressed beyond expectation. – Holden Lane High School
