Champoluc is situated in the Monterosa Ski Area and is one of Europe’s best kept secrets. A real gem of a resort and ski area, with perfectly groomed and extensive slopes, best for intermediates and those more confident on and off piste.The BIG plus of Champoluc, apart from the pretty village, is the height as the mountain range goes up to 3550m ensuring snow, all the ski season and beyond! There is the attractive old village centre complete with church and river. Most of Champoluc’s accommodation is situated along the main road, but there are a few options on the slopes. 

The Monterosa ski area offers extensive skiing and the links to the other valleys enable even the most moderate skier to explore further afield, getting plenty of ski miles under the belt. Beginners are fairly well served here! With an open bowl and a variety of nursery slopes at the top of the Crest Gondola, by the end of the week confident beginners will be able to ski the relatively easy red run that enables them to reach the easier blues on the Frachey slopes. A Safe haven also for families wishing to enjoy each other’s company in a relaxed informal resort in the centre of some of the most marvellous scenery in the Monterosa Ski area. There is a new children’s The runs are varied, well groomed and generally uncongested. Champoluc also offers some of the most varied skiing for the intermediate skier in the most spectacular of settings. The valley links make it possible to ski for long distances trying out various different routes through trees and open bowls, and the neighbouring Gressoney valley offers equally varied intermediate terrain. And there are 32 mountain restaurants to enjoy lunch in!

After a hard day on the slopes the après ski is quiet and uncomercialised – there are a few bars and cafes at the bottom of the last run home and nightlife later on in the evening centres on the hotels, a couple of late night bars and two discos. You can also organise an evening meal in one of the the mountain restaurants. There is also an ice rink and ice climbing amongst other energetic activities and a small number of shops to sample, but really party goers and shopoholics are best served elsewhere in Italy.This is a resort more for families,skiers and boarders and those who like a more sedate life style, though there are 2 discos for those who want to dance away until the early hours.
