  Outdoor activities gives one a healthy appetite and nothing suits better than Italian food to settle your hunger! The hotel serves both traditional dishes from Piemonte, as well as Italian classics. The food is carefully prepared and made from local, fresh ingredients of the highest quality. They match the food with great value, fine wines from the area around Alagna.

For Wine Lovers…

Nebbiolo, Barbera or Muscat. Not only is Hotel Monterosa located in the middle of skiing and hiking, it is also situated in one of Italy’s absolute best wine districts – Piemonte. Here, exclusive Barolo and Barbaresco wines are made of the Nebbiolo grape, robust wines of the Barbera grape and the sweet, sparkling Asti of the Muscat grape. Several of the most delicious wines in Piemonte are produced only a short distance from Alagna, in the Valsesia valley around the town of Gattinara. On the hotel’s wine list, you will always find some varieties from the local area, along with a wide selection of other good wines primarily from Piemonte.

Two meals out…

Matt Allen, one of the Active Away’s directors was lucky enough to go and visit this charming ski resort in Feb 2017. Matt has sourced two fantastic restaurants that we will eat at on the two nights outside of the included meals.

Eating on The Mountain

Italy is known for its food and this beautiful ski area offers some of the best restaurants we have experienced on the mountains. During Matt’s stay he found a a stunning restaurant with panoramic views of the ski area, where he ate bresaola (dry, salted beef), mountain hams and feather-light pasta, followed by incredible local deserts and a glass of prosecco all for just €16. We will organise which restaurants to eat at each day as a group. Alternatively, you can spread your wings and find your own route.

Caffè delle Guide

One of the most popular bars in Alagna is the Hotel Monterosa’s own bar, the Caffè delle Guide, which is situated just below the hotel at ground level. Both breakfast and lunch are served at the Caffè delle Guide, and skiers meet there for après-ski, while hikers stop for a refreshing drink after the day’s adventures. The café has exclusive access to the piazza, which becomes a lovely open-air café in the summer. Coffee with quality; Cappuccino, espresso, caffè latte, macchiato, americano… The Italian selection of coffee is as wide as it is good and the coffee at Hotel Monterosa is no exception. They take pride in making a good coffee, which can be enjoyed morning, noon and evening. Perhaps with a nice digestivo?

Lo Yoga is a philosphy, a daily walk, a good discipline, a sublime way to improve our being in the world. We have made it our passion to make sure that yoga is present in every moment of life and above all in every moment when in contact with nature. During our Snow Yoga sessions we unite the attitude of a yoga lesson with the marvelous mountain environment as we slowly move into the depths of the movement. Practicing yoga before and after skiing in winter, helps your body to manage the fatigue, improving performance and releasing the fatigue during relaxing. This is why we suggest ad hoc yoga lessons during ski trips and events and we also arrange seasonal courses.

You can book a room on your own starting from £33 per night. The room is exactly the same room that you receive as if two people are sharing – it is not a smaller, single room.

  The ski area incorporates the lift-linked resorts of Alagna, Champoluc and Gressoney, offering a total of 115 miles of pistes. Each of the attractive old towns is tucked into deep folds of valleys that fan out from the mountainous frontier between Italy and Switzerland. The dramatic peaks flanking Champoluc boast the greatest average height of any resort in the Alps and, on clear days, skiers are rewarded with wonderful views of Europe’s three highest peaks: Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa (also known as Dufourspitze), after which the ski area is named. The Monterosa’s three valleys are comparable to the Trois Vallees in France in terms of the physical relationship of the main resorts, but they could hardly offer a more different ski experience. Much of the terrain remains undeveloped and perfect for off-piste skiing. While the crowds arrive for the weekends and peak holiday periods, for the most part, the skiing throughout Monterosa is on amazingly quiet pistes. Alagna is legendary for advanced off-piste itineraries, but the area as a whole has a lot to offer deep snow skiers at every level. At the other end of the spectrum, for improver/intermediates the skiing is relaxed with plenty of family friendly terrain and magnificent scenery. Intermediates and above should consider the Monterosa ski region as a whole rather than as three separate valleys. Looking at the piste map these valleys can be seen, very broadly and from left to right, as suitable for beginner to intermediate, intermediate and intermediate to advanced skiers. The on-piste skiing includes only 17km of black runs, none of which are particularly challenging, but the region’s off-piste terrain is a magnet for experienced deep snow skiers from advanced to expert level and there are plenty of mountain guides operating in the region.
