A peaceful, rustic farming village on the far eastern fringes of the Monterosa ski area. The tiny hamlet of old wooden buildings, a pretty church and quiet streets make it feel distinctly different from the conventional ski resort. But the slopes offer some of the ski area's best off-piste opportunities. The three-valley network of lifts and pistes is anything but small-scale. Champoluc is at one end of it and Alagna at the other; they are 17km apart as the crow flies - slightly further apart than Courchevel and Val-Thorens. But it's around a four-hour trip by road to get from Alagna to Champoluc if you miss the last lift. It was only recently that Alagna became accessible by piste from the top of the Gressoney lifts. Expert skiers may be inclined to regret the fact that a splendid off-piste run was sacrificed; but that's progress. They have plenty more bowls to play in and the black Olen piste is a cracker.
