Booking a last minute ski deal to the Aosta Valley is a great way to make sure the very best powder is there. While conditions are usually in good shape throughout the season, the region has been often considered one of the best places to ski in Europe after a big powder dump.
The high altitude of the resorts (Cervinia is highest) and their soaring ski areas, mixed with big snow falls makes for some of the best slopes in Alps, and regardless of which resort you stay at, the runs should be in great shape if your flight is timed right.
You’re free to explore 800km of piste across the entire region with the Aosta Pass. If you stay in Courmayeur, you’ll have access to skiing in the famous French resort of Chamonix, Cervinia is linked to Zermatt in Switzerland and La Thuile is joined to La Rosiere in France by the Little St Bernard Pass. Champoluc and Gressoney are both part of the Monterosa region and share the Monterosa ski pass.
If this wasn’t enough, the scenery is second to none – you can see the Matterhorn, Mont Blonc, Monte Rosa and other Alpine legends from most resorts. And the food... well that’s another story altogether.
