Still a little-known excellent Italian ski resort spanning 3 valleys and stretching from Alagna Valsesia in Piedmont to Champoluc in the Aosta Valley region. It is surrounded by one of the highest massifs of the Alps - Monte Rosa. A mecca for freeriding where snow is present from November to May. There are plans to connect the area with nearby Cervinia and Swiss Zermatt.

SnowSpot reviews: Zermatt-Cervinia
As the highest situated resort in Europe, Zermatt-Breuil-Cervinia-Valtournenche is, on paper, quite the attraction for the ski enthusiast. The lifts on the Plateau Rosa glacier are open nearly year-round, and the thickness of snow cover rarely dips below a meter. Still, it remains an unpopular choice among skiers, and so we set out to find why.
