The furthest east of the 3 lift -linked resorts which make up the extensive Monterosa ski area, Alagna is an enchanting Alpine village with ancient architecture and a relaxed, traditional feel. The scenery is spectacular and much of the terrain remains un-developed, perfect for exploring off piste.
The majority of the 180km of pisted runs which make up the Monterosa ski area are reds, but there are also some easier blues and some more challenging blacks.
In addition to the pisted ski area, Alagna offers numerous off piste descents with varying levels of difficulty. The lift system reaches some 3,275m and ski touring and heli trips with Alpine Guides are easily organised.
Alagna is most suited to reasonable intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders.
Accommodation in Alagna is of a good standard and the charming village offers some great, good value restaurants and bars.
