Great runs, wide, fantastic snow and the scenery was superb. Sometimes we were the only ones on the slopes - had a bit of a shock on Saturday when the weekenders arrived. Personally a bit disappointed in the mountain restaurants - perhaps we've been spoilt by Austria! Service in a couple was excruciatingly slow - what are they like in peak times? Prices were good however but food bit too samey and sandwichy! One exception was Mountain Restaurant Saussun (off blue run Del Lago) - very small so booking essential. ...

Champoluc is one of the three valleys that build up the Monterosa ski system. From what I could see, it was also the largest, not that it was any larger compared to towns in Austria... I liked it small and cozy. Not many late night party places, but still, Panachama was all I needed (after ski). The mountains are very steep and somewhat rocky. Intense, massive and wonderful. This reflects the skiing opportunities; some places I would not want to fall as you would fall 300 metres right down.

The Champoluc side of the Monterosa ski system is good in the afternoon/evening as then there is sun and not that many people. If you wish to travel to a ski destination where there is nearly always s...

Champoluc is part of the stunning MonteRosa Ski. In MonteRosa Ski, there are mountains everywhere so the lifts take you up and then you ski down the valley. Initially I found this somewhat unsatisfying, but after a while you appreciate the stunning views, the wide, fast and empty slopes and enjoy the whole experience. There were no queues on the Thursday and Friday and the slopes were deserted, so fantastic for fast skiing. At the weekend, things were a little busier. The area is perfect for intermediate skiers, with long, wide, empty slopes. There are some challenging pistes, but even the blacks are not as difficult as you would see in France. I particularly enjoyed the steep black from Pun...

Champoluc is skioord bijna op het eind van Val d'Ayas in de Val d'Aosta. Hooggelegen, sneeuwzeker, de Italiaanse gemoedelijke sfeer uitademend. Er zijn prachtige pistes met aansluiting op aanliggende skigebieden. Champoluc is een sterke aanrader voor de skiër op alle niveau's. via <a href="http://www.retourcasa.nl" target="_blank">www.retourcasa.nl</a> boekt u eenvoudig in één van de gemoedlijke hotels die RetourCasa voor u heeft geselecteerd!.

The skiing in Champoluc is great, but not very challenging. The snow is much the same as Zermat or Cervinia at a third of the price of Zermat and a bit more than half the price of Cervinia ! If you want apres ski, go somewhere else, but if you want well prepared pistes, fantastic scenery, great value mountain restaurants, and friendly locals, Champoluc has it all. If you get up early you can drive to Cervinia and take a day pass for the Zermat ski domain, ski down into Switzerland for lunch (Try Max & Greti at Zum Zee, the best mountain restaurant in the world) ski one or two decents from Klein Materhorn then Ski the 14km Ventina pist from the top of Klein Materhorn (4000m) over plateau ...
