In the midst of Europe's highest peaks, the Aosta Valley is the heart of the Alps.
Home to the mighty Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc), the Matterhorn and the Monte Rosa, it’s not surprising that the Aosta Valley offers fabulous opportunities for skiing and snowboarding amidst spectacular scenery. The major resorts of the Aosta Valley are Courmayeur which sits at the foot of Mont Blanc, Cervinia which overlooks the Matterhorn and links into Zermatt in Switzerland, La Thuile which links with La Rosiere in France, Pila which is just a gondola ride away from historic Aosta town and Champoluc and Gressoney which share the fabulous Monterosa ski area.
Whether you are looking for family-friendly trails, long lunches or swathes of untracked powder, discover some of Europe's best skiing and snowboarding in the resorts of the Aosta Valley. The valley is one of the few areas in Europe where you can partake in the experience of heli-skiing and also offers superb and inexpensive locally sourced cuisine both on and off the mountain. Within two hours of Geneva, Turin and Milan, the Aosta Valley is the heart of the Alps.
