One of the most famous place in the world for freeride. Impressive and very wild landscapes, the huge Monte Rosa, the second tallest peak in the Alps (15203 ft) overwhelming the valley, breathtaking itineraries between glaciers and fantastic valleys. The town is famous for its buildings built in the XV and XVI century. Unesco World Heritage since 2013. Balma, Malfatta, Olen, Giacchetti the most famous freeride itineraries.

Pisted skiing is limited for beginners / intermediates however the area is excellent for off piste skiing / powder hound. To get the best out of the resort a mountain guide is a must (in 04 circa Euro 230 per day). There are two local guide companies. Heli skiing is also a must if conditions are good. The new cable car, which will open in late 04, will do a lot to link Alagna to the other resorts in the area. Restuarants are somewhat limited and night life very limited but both are made up for by the friendly welcome of the locals.

Be aware, when it snows or gets cloudy, the high altitude at Alagna creates white-out conditions. When it happens, very little of the terrain is accessible because you're unable to see where you are going and can't even say if you're going up or down. Off-trail becomes impossible even for very experienced top shape skiers. ore terrain is accessible in the other valleys, but you have to access the summit to switch to the other valleys (including excellent tree skiing in Gressonney), and the summit is frequently closed (wind, avalanche control). So, in bad weather conditions (assuming a lot of snow is bad) almost nothing is accessible if you're in Alagna. Despite this, the village is amazing a

Alagna is a fantastic area with great skiing for all abilities and great access to off-piste. Best suits adventures intermediates to experts, but also offers 180kms of good cruising pistes. Alagna can get busy at peak times because of its proximity to Milan/Turin but very quite the majority of time.
