Lift price information:

This Alagna trip is an action-packed holiday sure to satisfy your off piste cravings. With six full days with local mountain guides you will be able to experience the best the resort has to offer, from wide open powder bowls to narrow couloirs. Alagna retains that low-key village charm and feels incredibly unspoilt, making it the perfect spot to retreat to after challenging yourself to some tough off piste terrain.

ON SNOW EXPERIENCE

During this holiday, you’ll spend six full days skiing with mountain guides. This trip is aimed at Advanced (Purple) to Expert (Gold) off piste skiers. If you are unsure of your ski level, please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you will receive an updated grading from your Guide or Ski Club Rep.

When participating in a Purple/Gold off piste holiday you should be prepared to do some ski touring at some point during the trip. Where possible the lift system will be used to access off piste terrain, however if you need to venture a bit further afield in order to access the best off piste conditions, then your instructors may suggest ski touring. This will all be dependent upon conditions and the instructors you have on your trip.

ACCOMMODATION

In the shadow of Monte Rosa you’ll be staying 7 nights half board at the 4* Hotel Cristallo in twin share accommodation. The hotel is only 300m from the ski lifts and is therefore a fantastic base from which to explore the area’s terrain and to satisfy your needs when it comes to a full days skiing. With a warm welcome and authentic Italian charm you can rest assured you'll be well rested, and ready to start again the following day.

This holiday is on a twin share basis. If you are a solo traveler, then you will be placed in a room with someone of the same gender. Single rooms may be available upon request. These are subject to our hotel room allowance. If you require a single room, please book early to avoid disappointment.

TRAVEL

This holiday includes both your flights with British Airways from London Heathrow and transfers from Milan Linate. Ski Carriage is payable at the airport only and cannot be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from Milan Linate Airport, so please look out for them in the main arrivals hall, they will be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. Transfers to and from resort will take approximately two and a half hours.

If these arrangements are not convenient, you can organise your own travel and may be eligible to receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. Furthermore, if you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times, then you can meet the group at the airport and take our transfers to resort. Please do not book any alternative flights or travel until your holiday has been confirmed to run. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 in order to discuss this further.

RESORT

The Monterosa ski area is nestled in the heart of the Italian Alps and is made up of the three principal resorts of Alagna, Gressoney and Champoluc, all traditional and charming villages.

Above Alagna you will find some great tree runs but as you rise above the tree line, the slopes open out to wide powder fields waiting to be explored. As the off piste in Alagna is a little bit of a local secret, the area is slightly trickier to navigate, making your local mountain guide's knowledge invaluable. For more information, please read the Alagna Resort Guide.

EQUIPMENT

If you require equipment hire, we recommend Sport Haus. This is located within a 5-minute walk of the hotel, next to the main lift station. They offer a a good range of off piste equipment, and your Ski Club rep can help you with this when in resort.

If you own your own ski touring equipment, then it may be worth taking this with you on your trip. If you do not own your own kit, then this can normally be easily rented in resort. However, please be aware of the cost of hiring this equipment in resort.
