Three valleys, a few charming towns, quite a lot of peaks over 4,000m and more than 20 named glaciers tipping down their sides, set the stage for skiing and snowboarding at Monterosa. There is good access between the three valleys and hardly any queues for the lifts – and your pass covers all three valleys, so consider the area’s potential as a whole.

The mountains, as the name suggests are coloured a rosy pink in the morning and evening light, but it’s only the local people, coming down from Milan on the weekend who really see them, for such a pretty sport this is a very un-crowded resort virtually unknown by the package holiday markets. The main reason for this is that it’s relatively undeveloped and most of the terrain is off piste and more suited to intermediate skiers. The towns are equally undeveloped, less après ski than après small Italian mountain town, but there’s a lot of charm in that as well.
