Alagna Guide Hire
Found in the Italy’s Monterosa ski area, Alagna is one of three villages which sits within this huge ski area. Almost the size of the Trois Valleys, it only has 73km of runs which means the rest is off piste, ready to be explored with or without a guide. When you visit Alagna you find yourself at the base of Monte Rose which is the second highest mountain in the Alps and the highest mountain in Switzerland at 4634m.
Mountain Guides in Alagna
There’s plenty of off piste to explore in the region accessible from the highest lift, Passo Salati. Skiing the Indren glacier down into the Sesia or the Gressoney valley you can make the most of the 2000m descent which includes glaciers, big open bowls and narrow steep couloirs. If you’re willing to put in a little more effort, hiking a few hundred metres from the Salati pass gives you access to more terrain and the true off-piste heaven in the Monte Rosa massif. Hiring a mountain guide in Alagna is the most sensible option if you are lacking in experience, local knowledge of the terrain or weather conditions or just confidence. Ski guides in Alagna provide an invaluable service not only offering security and safety but also the local knowledge that can find you the best snow.
If you’re looking at heli-skiing in Alagna or the surrounding region, a guide is compulsory. A popular ascent with a helicopter to Lysjoch or Signalkuppe gives you 2500 height metres of untracked powder skiing down to Zermatt.
