We had luck to be there in March 2019 with a week of very sunny weather, a bit windy, but all in all we had great views. Ski lifts are rather new and slopes are prepared. Not a lot of people so nothing else to...More

This was the first time I had skied in Italy after years of France and Canada. I had read that things were far more relaxed in Italy and was delighted to find this to be true. The snow was in relatively poor condition due to...More

We had a pleasure to spend five days in Monterosa at perfect sunshine. Perfect slopes, good condition, excellent restaurants and not too busy. Full sun shine was relaxing, but bad for snow.

Fantastic ski area. Not too long queues for lifts, lovely pistes, and amazing off-piste skiing. Have been twice, will definitely go again. One time snow was fantastic, other time not so good- but skiing still very good in both! If you are an advanced skiier...More

Very god spot with an access to the runs of various levels. There are three (one may say even four) separate ski resorts there and skiing through all of them would take a few hours, if you are good.

We were based in Champoluc. Monterosa Ski area is at the mercy of the winds and the lifts/links/resort will be quickly shutdown limiting skiing or stop you from skiing altogether. The bus to Frachey is twice the hour and when it arrives is a horrific...More

Most slopes are long and varied. The only thing I'd improve is the forced walk in Staffal, but the quality of the slopes and the vast off piste areas more than makes up for this.
