Monterosa is a lovely area, very high and snow sure. Some excellent runs but there is not a huge amount of mileage on the pistes. Off-piste excellent when the conditions are right, but it was quite tracked out when we were there. Quiet during the week but busier at weekends when the crowds come up from Turin. A car is helpful as you can then easily ski the smaller areas below La Trinite and Champoluc, but the idea that you can ski the rest of the Aosta Valley is misleading unless you are prepared to spend more than three hours in the car. The scenery is stunning - the three peaks above the Gressonney valley are higher than the Matterhorn which can be seen from various points in the area. Food invariably good, toilets less so, but probably improving. If you have a day off, Gressonney St Jean down the valley, with its Castel di Savoia, is worth a visit.
