Champoluc-Frachey – The Champoluc area is part of the Monterosa circuit. A number of runs of varying difficulty cross its slopes, allowing all kinds of skiers to find what they are looking for here, from beginners to experts. Champoluc and Frachey are the departure points for an enchanting route that takes visitors on skis right to Gressoney and Alagna, in the other two valleys that complete the Monterosa Ski area.

The runs are equipped with a modern artificial snow cover system that allows for skiing all through the winter right on until late spring.
