Gressoney la Trinité Ski Resort

Gressoney sits at the heart of the Monterosa ski area, with the pictureseque village acting as a great base to explore the varied slopes and excellent off piste in the region.

Because of its location in the middle of the three valleys that make up the 132km Monterosa piste network, this is a great place to base yourself. From the edge of town, the chairlift to Punta Jolanda or a bus gets you to Stafal and the main link between neighbouring Champoluc to the west and Alagna to the east. There is lots of great on piste cruising on offer, but the real attraction is the lift served off piste – which has to be some of the best in Italy.

With such accessible freeriding and great selection of pistes, its no surprise that Gressoney (along with its neighbour Alagna) is a Ski Club Freshtracks favourite. This winter we have four trips heading out to the resort, so why not join us and explore everything this fantastic resort has to offer?

Gressoney la Trinité Skiing and Snowboarding

There is a decent beginner zone on the fringes of Gressoney, but this really is a resort for intermediates upwards. Fans of piste skiing will enjoy the reds above Seehorn and towards the lofty Passo Salati at 2971m on the Alagna side of the valley and the long runs over to Champoluc are also a must. Just watch out for the steeper black G6 above Stafal – in bad snow conditions it may be worth downloading the gondola to get across towards Champoluc.

It is for advanced and expert skiers and boarders that this resort really comes into its own however. The jewel in the crown is Punta Indren, where long off piste runs drop down over 1000m. Hiring a mountain guide or joining a Ski Club Freshtracks holiday here will ensure you make the most of the terrain, which expands into a vast playground if you have a set of touring skins. Another bonus here is that the snow often remains untracked for longer – crowds are almost unheard of.

Gressoney la Trinité Resort

Gressoney is a traditional Italian mountain village, with an attractive cobbled centre that is dominated by old wooden buildings. A slight issue is the only lift directly from town is a slow two-man chair up to Punta Jolanda – you may want to consider catching the bus up to the lift hub at Stafal instead.

There are a few hotels up by Stafal and the main lifts, but there is very little else, especially on the evening activity front. Gressoney itself is also quiet, but there is a better choice of atmospheric bars, good restaurants and small shops – just don’t come here expecting raucous parties and late nights.
