Description

Monte Rosa, Alagna, is the ideal destination for freeride enthusiasts. Indeed, this is the only European site which offers routes with more than 2000 m of vertical off-piste ski runs.

Besides, this area is great because there are itineraries for all skiing levels. Depending on your wishes and skills, we can choose the ideal one. My goal is to guide you to the best hidden spots in the Monte Rosa range, in search of the best powder snow.

The following are some examples of great places where we can go.

BALMA: This is the most renown itinerary. Several different lines to descend the 2000 m. Access is easy from Punta Indren.

SALZA: This is another classic of the area. It goes by a wide valley northwest ward. The 1750 m of descent are exciting, apt even for beginners.

MALFATTA: A great 2000 m itinerary, requiring a 40 m rappel in a steep couloir. This leads to… paradise! A wide valley  where powder remains for a long time.

VALLE PERDUTA: 45 min walking with skins take us to the steep access to the couloir. Then we have 1850 m descending through an amazing glacier.

ZUBE VALLEY: 30 min walking, then 1750 m descending through the most stunning valley of the area.

You need to be in good shape as well as to have a good off-piste skiing techniques.

We can ski together for one or several days. 

The program will be defined based on the ski level of the participants as well as their wishes. We might focus more on freeride skiing or more ski touring. The program will also depend on the conditions, weather and snow.

Does this sound interesting? Then please get in touch with me and let’s start planning your ideal guided ski day(s) in the Monte Rosa area!
