The Monterosa’s three valleys are comparable to the Trois Vallees in France in terms of the physical relationship of the main resorts, but they could hardly offer a more different ski experience. Much of the terrain remains undeveloped and perfect for off-piste skiing. While the crowds arrive for the weekends and peak holiday periods, for the most part, the skiing throughout Monterosa is on amazingly quiet pistes. Alagna is legendary for advanced off-piste itineraries, but the area as a whole has something to offer skiers at every level, including those who just want family friendly terrain with plenty of mountain restaurants and magnificent scenery.
Our package is based in the quaint village of Champoluc, at the western side and where most of the beginner and intermediate terrain is located.
This very popular 3* hotel has been run by four generations of the same family and is renowned for it’s traditional alpine style, warm atmosphere, and family-friendly facilities. Situated in the heart of Champoluc, Hotel Castor is just a 6 minute walk from the main ski lifts, and has wonderful views across the square and mountain range, with many of the 32 bedroom balconies looking down the Ayas Valley. Enjoy a varied menu including sumptuous desserts and an extensive wine list in the Larchwood-lined walls of the restaurant which also features decorative ceilings and wood sculptures by local artists. The bar, based in one of the more historic parts of the hotel, is one of the most popular in the village and has lots to offer, including legendary music nights. All rooms are furnished in a traditional alpine style with wooden furniture. All have free Wifi and en-suite bathroom, many with baths.
