Unlike many of Italy’s most popular resorts, Alagna is in fact a small mountain village. It has an almost hamlet-like feel to it, and remains a tranquil and serene destination for all its guests. Despite what you may think, however, it has access to plenty of snowsport zones and facilities. From here you can access 132km of ski and snowboarding zones, and 5km of ski routes. Moreover, it offers 19 lifts which will elevate you to heights of between 1212-3275m. In fact, its access reaches from Champoluc at one end to Alagna at the other, covering 17km, as the bird flies.
If this is not enough, Alagna also offers heli-skiing, which will offer as much as 3000m in vertical! Furthermore, Alagna boasts some one of the widest variety of free-riding in this area. In fact, it has only recently become reachable by piste from the Gressoney lifts. In addition to this, Alagna also boasts many bowls, ski-mountaineering opportunities, as well as the amazing black piste, Olen. For those looking for a break from the slopes, you can relax in the spa facilities, or with some snow yoga! Alternatively, seek your thrills elsewhere with the snow-based go-carting and ice-skating opportunities.
In summer, Alagna can also offer a wide variety of entertaining activities. There are classic Alpine activities, such as hiking, mountaineering, rock-climbing, and biking. There are also more unique sports on offer, such as white-water rafting and fishing.
