Alagna, Gressoney, Champoluc … powder between Piedmont and Aosta Valley
Off-piste skiing on the slopes of Monte Rosa is world famous, both for the length of the itineraries and for the spectacular environment with many peaks over 4000m surrounding it. There are many possible itineraries to choose from depending on what you are seeking. The most famous are the Col d’Olen, the Malfatta channel, the Giacchetti channel, the Valle d’Otro, the Bettolina channel and the Vallone della Salza … If you’re happy to make some short approaches using seal skins, we can reach those less frequented corners with the most beautiful snow, but we will always respect our safety: the dangers on the snow are always ready to ambush us!!!
Mandatory safety equipment: ARTVA, shovel, probe. If you do not have it, you can rent it from local dealers, or from the Alpine Guides themselves. The possible need for detachable heel attachments and seal skins will be discussed with the Guide before departure.
NOTES: freeriding is a beautiful activity that allows us to discover enchanted places, velvety and white, to feel free, darting through the powder snow, drawing perfect tracks. At the same time it is a potentially dangerous activity and requires a great deal of experience to evaluate the conditions of the snowpack. It will therefore be ESSENTIAL that the members adhere to the rules of behaviour illustrated by the Guide before departure, and that they respect any possible change of plan designed for their safety!
