Gressoney-La-Trinité

Gressoney-La-Trinité is the last town centre at the start of the valley in which the Lys River flows, at 1,627 metres above sea level, in vast flatland dominated by the impressive Lyskamm glacier, closed between two steep walls and covered in rich, larch tree vegetation.

The town centre hosts the parish church of the Santissima Trinità dating back to 1671 and built on the foundation of a fifteenth-century building.

During medieval times, this district belonged to the Bishops of Sion and was populated by shepherds from the neighbouring valley: the Walser.

The Walser are a race of Germanic origin that arrived in these parts over eight centuries ago, passing through Colle del Teodulo; they settled for good in Valle di Gressoney after previously moving around the valleys, from where they get their name. Their culture is still reflected today in their architecture, in their traditions and their language. In Gressoney a typical form of Walser, called “Titsch“, with clear German influences is often spoken.

Gressoney-La-Trinité is an internationally renowned, Alpine resort. It is equipped and frequented for alpine ascents in the Monte Rosa chain and to practice all winter sports: it forms part of the Monterosa Ski complex, which, with its 150 kilometres of pistes, is one of the largest and most picturesque in Europe.

In Gressoney-La-Trinité (which has a wonderful cross-country piste) the lifts reach 3,000 metres in Passo dei Salati, on the border with Piedmont, up to the 3,275 metres at the Indren. Stafal is the gateway to more enthusiastic, off-track skiing routes that arrive to Monte Rosa, up to 4,459 metres to Punta Gnifetti and the Regina Margherita hut, the highest refuge in Europe.
